Educational Exposure  

Today, girls from all the three PACE centres (Sarai Kale Khan, Mori Gate, Shiv Vihar) were taken on an educational visit to the National Science Museum and the National Crafts Museum. These girls are usually not allowed to go out, thanks to our PACE teams that they did house visits and counselling of parents of these girls and convinced them to let these girls come out on this exposure visit.
Gender and restricted mobility remain an issue. The visit helped us to motivate the girls and increase their awareness level regarding the space they own in today’s world. Their knowledge about science and intricate crafts and hand looms existing in India was also built upon. The girls were also motivated by the IT director of the National Crafts Museum to pursue education further. Overall, it was a great learning experience for both- the BUDS PACE team and our PACE girls
