Adolescents

India has 120 million adolescent girls, accounting for nearly 10% of its population. Despite their numbers, girls in India are a largely invisible population. Prevailing socio-cultural customs and norms leave them powerless to decide and build their future. Within this context, Dasra is working towards creating an environment in which girls are safe, seen and celebrated, creating a catalytic change leading to healthier and more prosperous families, communities and societies.
