Priyanka breaks free of her painful past and creates a life for herself

Priyanka Jogi is a 17-year-old girl who lives in Jawahar Nagar slum with her mother and four younger siblings.

When her father died eight years ago, her family was left in a miserable condition. Her mother began to sell tissues on the road to earn money to take care of the children. But she had to undergo an appendicitis operation which left her bedridden.

This left them with no money and there were days without even one meal. Priyanka decided to sell tissues to earn for her family. She was found by volunteers from Vimukti Sanstha. They enrolled her at the school where she has been studying since the past seven years.

Priyanka first went to school because of the milk and a snack that she got there. It gave her energy and kept her going through the day.

As she began to go to school regularly, she started to enjoy it. She was given a double promotion and takes part in all the activities of the school. Her teachers saw that she enjoyed crafts and trained her to make rakhis and diyas that she sells to earn money for her family. Priyanka hopes to grow up and teach poor children the way she is being taught today.

Growing children need proper nutrition which many from urban slums do not get. If they get food in their schools, they will keep coming.

You can help a girl like Priyanka by giving her a meal everyday. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED. Your gift could give a child strength to keep going and complete her education.

Program Description

Vimukti Sanstha has identified education and vocational training as the means to empower girls from the urban slums of Jaipur. The slums of Jaipur suffer from various socio-economic problems which are intensified by the continued migration of poor families from rural areas.

The living conditions are abysmal. Two meals a day is a far cry and hence education is never a priority. Vimukti Sansata to aid this situation started providing nutritional snacks and milk in their schools to encourage parents to send girls to school. Children continuously grow and develop from birth through their teenage years. Good nutrition is the fuel for this development, forming the foundation of good health and no education can be given to a hungry child.

This program helps to provide continuous nutrition to 600 girl children in the school. Donate to this program to help Vimukti Sanstha continue to provide nutrition to young slum children.

About The NGO

Vimukti Sanstha
Vimukti Sanstha Logo
Vimukti Sanstha

Vimukti Sanstha was set up as a society in 2004 in Jaipur .Our mission is to combat and overcome the vulnerability of underprivileged young girls by providing literacy and education in an effort to make them self-reliant and self-employed citizens.

Mr.Arun Kumar is the head of the organization. He is a Retd.I.A.S officer of Rajasthan. He held various positions in the government of Rajasthan. He was also the chief secretary of Rajasthan for 2 years. Starting with 30 girls in 2004,

Parents of most of the girls are daily wage earners and hence do not have a regular income. Many a time even if fathers earn, they do not support the family and spend all their earnings on drinking and hence the mothers are forced to work but since they are hardly educated, they can only manage to work as domestic help or cooks which fetches them little money to take care of all the expenses.

95% of the students at Vimukti are from socially backward classes including minority communities and their average family income is less than Rs 100000 annually for an average family size of 5. Vimukti works with around 600 girls from ages 5 to 17 years.
