“When girls are educated, their countries become stronger and more prosperous." — Michelle Obama
Offering girls basic education is one sure way of giving them power to make choices over the kinds of lives they wish to lead. An educated girl/woman has the skills, information and self-confidence that she needs to be a better parent, worker and citizen.
Bitiya is trying to make a difference in the lives of girls from early childhood, which enhances their self-esteem and prepares them for future. Below are some information regarding our current projects, as well as a link to view our past endeavors.
This project, which began in 2016, is centered around girls from the town of Jagatpur. These girls come from families who are only able to provide minimal food and clothing, and as such have been forced to place education on the back burner. Bitiya India team was able to convince the families of these girls that education can be a huge benefit for their daughter and their future. Since 2016, has been sponsoring 12 of these young girls, aged 4-8, to attend Paramount, a school located in Jaipur.

Bitiya has spread its wings to Pune in Western India. Bitiya is partnering with Mahila Seva Mandal, an organization which helps underprivileged young girls who are either orphans or have single mothers. After speaking with the girls and their teachers, we observed that the girls are bright and eager to pursue higher education. We are providing these girls extra coaching classes to maintain their grade and preform well in school. Bitiya will also be working with the girls' on improving their understanding of the English language and their confidence in speaking English.
Our objective is to:

Inculcate moral values among the girls to help them become better versions of themselves
Motivate them to excel
