About The Event

About 50 of our Kishori Mandal members (adolescent girls) gathered together for a talent show. These girls are organized into Self Empowerment Groups (SEGs) of 10 girls each, which meet regularly to form strong friendships and support each other in developing essential assets that will enable them to live empowered lives. The talent show included singing, dancing, and their own original writings. After the talent show, 15 girls ranging from age 8 to 16 participated in a 30 minute writing competition in which they had to answer the question "What does justice mean to you?" The responses were original, heart-felt and thought-provoking. In the end, two top winners were chosen, based on their expressiveness, creativity and quality of writing. Stay tuned for an English translation of the two winning submissions!
