Divas Abroad 2020: Jaipur, India (APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN!)

Laura Furtado

We are excited to announce that Divas Abroad will be heading to Jaipur, India in 2020!  To celebrate International Women’s Month, from March 21-29th, 2020, we will be working with various groups:

Group 1 is composed of motivated adolescent girls from 13-23 years old who undergo stitching and tailoring classes. Group 2 is a group of pregnant women with whom we have worked for health education in a Hindu dominated slum. This is a small group of 6-10 ladies (depends on the duration who is pregnant) with the age group of 16-30 years old who need awareness about how to take care of themselves, what household tasks can harm the development of the baby, what to eat and what not.  Group 3 is composed of adult women from the same slum as in Group 2 or from a rural area.  It’s a small facility but it’s possible to share the number of women in 2 rooms 10 in each room. We discuss with the group health education and fitness.  Group 4 is adolescent girls of an orphanage. 6-8 girls are HIV infected and they live in the orphanage alongside with their junior peers and friends. Their age is from 13-17 and some of them go to school while others to college. This group is generally shy and they get interest in teenage related topics like self-perception and beauty, health, arts, etc.

About the Program
