J770 The Tikvah Project

India, Indian Subcontinent

The Situation

The Tikvah Project aims to provide practical ways for poor tribal women and children to break out of the poverty cycle through the provision of educational, vocational opportunities and health care.

The Objectives

  1. The project does this through a number of life changing initiatives, including running two literacy classes in different locations, and teaching women and their accompanying children to run two tailoring schools at different locations.
  2. The project also offers other women the opportunity to complete the course, and seeks to establish a tailoring business to provide employment for women who have completed the tailoring course. Profits will be used to develop the project and lead to increasing self-sustainability.
