Womens Vocational Training: Mahila Training Markaz
A New Center for Women with Interrupted Lives.
The young women of India make up the majority of high school drop outs. With too much work to do at home, this pressures young women to suspend, or end their education permanently. Drop-outs never realize their true potential, and can become socially isolated. In youth, these women should be brimming with hope and pride, yet find themselves discouraged and defeated.
The MTM is an answer to their troubles, providing women with a community to learn, grow, and learn trades--giving meaning to their lives. Aligarh, India is a muslim populated area of Uttar Pradesh. Conservative Muslim ideologies are generally regressive, rather than progressive, when it comes to female education and their roles in society. Women are expected to remain at home to complete the daily chores.
