As a volunteer you will be working with girls and women in the age group of 16-40 years. As a part of project, students provide counselling and monitoring and help women by teaching English, helping in different vocational courses such as beautician work, stitching and handicrafts work for them so that they can improve their language and skills before beginning their career and become financially independent.
