PEH has now expanded its educational program to sponsor vocational education and skills training programs for women, primarily focusing on young mothers. We teach them employable skills such as embroidery and sewing, as well as some other basic life skills. This helps the women supplement the family’s household income and over time will alleviate them from poverty.
Funds received from the sponsor are used to pay for the child’s school fees, books, and other educational needs. Sponsors can make a commitment to support a child for one year or until the child graduates from college; all students are continued in the program regardless of the status of the sponsor.
Over the years, thanks to the efforts of many volunteers, both in the United States and Ahmedabad, the donor sponsorship has been able to grow and develop to the point where it has now supported the educational needs of over 6,800 students from pre-primary school through college.
The goal of PEH is to grow this program by at least 250 children per year and expand the vocational education and skills training program by 100 women per year. The number of children sponsored by PEH has grown from 40 in 2004 and 214 in 2005 to the current total of over 6,800 students.
