Kishori Mandal meetings are held to provide a platform for girls aged 11-16 to build their self-confidence by giving them inputs in life skills and information on topics they would not readily receive at home or in their school curriculum.
In addition, camps and workshops are held periodically for the Kishori girls to help them gain independence and create a sense of unity and cohesiveness among them. The Kishoris get an opportunity to listen to empowered grassroots workers who are able to raise awareness about legal and social issues.
The workshops also give leadership training that enables the young girls to face society’s many challenges in the future.
The weekly meetings and or workshops are regularly held in five villages and attract 25-40 girls.
