The article describes a project targeting 70,000 girls and young women in self-help groups organised by UNICEF, educating them on various life and business skills, such as financial literacy, book-keeping and leadership.

Part of the Building Young Futures community investment programme, the project also works with the education department of Maharashtra state to develop lessons on money management and entrepreneurial skills in schools.

The Times highlighted the case of one of the project’s participants: “Growing up in Mumbai’s slums, Parvin Sheikh, 19, assumed she would marry at a young age.

“She now works as an office assistant for a manufacturing company. And in the evenings earns money designing henna tattoos for rich families and selling supplies to beauty parlours.

“‘I don’t depend on my father anymore,’ she says.”
