From France to India, Pimp My World meets Sambhali Trust


-->
Pimp My World Association was funded by Ilana and Adrien who wanted to help and support the Trust during their one year of travel. A year ago Pimp my World found Sambhali Trust and the opportunities for a new life that they were offering the women and children of Jodhpur and Setrawa. Knowing these issues that women systemically face in India, Pimp my World wanted to get involved and to help in a new way. After speaking with Sambhali Trust, Pimp my World visited Jodhpur for three weeks and visited all of the empowerment centers and the boarding homes to discuss with the teachers, women and children to understand how Sambhail works. Through these meetings, it was identified that computers and projectors for all of the centers were in dire need. With the help of Pimp My Ride’s generous sponsors M2E  and Sugar Foundation, computers and projectors were purchased for each of the centers. Seminars were held with all of the teachers to explain how to use each computer and how to utilize the various resource such as PowerPoint, Excel, and Word can be used to advance the educational materials at the centers. These women were also trained on how to create excel sheets and documents to better record the attendance of the centers. Pimp My World hopes that the new materials will allow each of the centers to enrich the possibilities of teaching and will empower women further through using technology and advancing their skill set. Our next goal is to find a way to continue Pimp My World’s efforts by assisting the Fatima Empowerment Center.

Thanks for sharing this useful information. Women empowerment and "women equality with men" is a universal issue.I really appreciate what you said about women empowerment.
