Kamalini

Kamalini supports women with basic education, business skills, vocational training and work placements with respectful employers.

Kamalini empowers women by offering basic education, business skills, vocational training and work placements with respectful employers in India.

Our local partner in India, Kamalini, empowers underprivileged women in Delhi and Haryana through education and mentoring. Many of them have experienced early marriage and motherhood and have left education at an early age. Kamalini offers basic education, business skills, vocational training and mentoring for these women. 

Kamalini also undertakes outreach work with families, helping them understand the importance and value of educating women. Our partnership with Kamalini makes education more accessible to women through our financial support and capacity building. The women who enrol at Kamalini receive three to twelve months of classes, including IT, tailoring, English, and housekeeping, which are useful in the local job market. The majority of these women go on to start their own businesses, and many others find work that allows them to support both themselves and their family.

  • Project focus: business skills, vocational training, mentoring
  • Year we started working with Kamalini: 2015
  • Women directly impacted: 4,944
