A girls interest center will be setup in Kacchi colony. Here, adolescent girls as well as their mothers will be encouraged to come and discuss all the issues pertaining to them. Specifically, girls in the age group of 14-18 years will be provided with basic literacy if they have never gone to school. Girls who have studied but are unable to find employment will be provided computer training and helped to get jobs in the surrounding industries.
