(NY) Empowering Girls Through Education

September 20 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Since 2003, Prerna Girls School, a private school in the city of Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh, India, has educated girls from impoverished families. Nonresident Fellow Urvashi Sahni, Prerna founder and teacher, has written “Reaching for the Sky: Empowering Girls through Education,” which recounts how the school changed the lives of more than 5,000 girls and their families. Told from the perspectives of several of the girls themselves, the book offers an inspiring narrative. The launch of “Reaching for the Sky” will feature a panel discussion with Dr. Sahni, a Prerna alumna, and a Prerna teacher.
