Since Protsahan was established in 2010 as an ‘after-school program’ for at-risk adolescent girls, it’s been a highly rewarding journey in terms of programs and projects executed, milestones achieved, and lives transformed.

‘Creative Education’ and ‘Skill Development’ are the fundamental principles in all our work. Over the course of time, our efforts allowed us to successfully rescue 800 girls and mainstream them into formal schools. We’ve also rescued 28 girls from forced early marriage, and trained another 200 in entrepreneurial life skills.

We reached out to 11,000 girls and boys through powerful media on social issues like child marriage, access to toilets, and gender violence through short films, photography, theater, and puppet shows. Our flagship programs ‘Project Educare’, ’Project Innocence’, and ‘Project Lightbulb’ have been extremely successful in raising awareness on child rights, prevention of child sexual abuse, and menstrual hygiene among 19,800 girls.
