Project “Protsahan Chiraiyya” is a rural social project on women empowerment started by the society at Neemka Shajahanpur, Jewar Tehsil, UP. This village is adopted by the Hon’ble Union Minister of culture and local MP, Dr. Mahesh Sharma under the Sansad Adarsh Gram Vikas Yojna. The project was launched with the vision to sensitize the rural underprivileged adolescent girls about all aspects of good quality life, education, health as well as their roles in the community. The pilot phase of this project was flagged off on 28th March, 2016 to commemorate the first death anniversary of Dr. Sarla Devi Birla, “Founding member of BIMTECH”.
The project is spread over several stages called Chiraiyya Kaushal, Chahek, Agradoot, Samwaad and Udaan. The first phase starts with the selection of 30 adolescent girls from lower strata of society (called Chiraiyya, a small sparrow in early stages of learning who once provided necessary support can develop confidence to spread her wings and fly with fervour) who are administered a 17 weeks’ capsule of Life skill Education. The second stage called Chahek, imparts a Basic English Education (BEE) programme. In the third stage, the students become torch – bearers of the project (called Agradoots, trained chiraiyya who as an ambassador will spread the message of the project to other girls in the community). The fourth stage provides them an opportunity of interaction with a dignitary and the fifth stage sees these girl students lead a more confident life with support from the society.
RSSWLD has continued to increase the outreach of its “Project Protsahan Chiraiyya”, as on date 150 girls have taken course on “life skills” while 60 girls have attendedthe course on English speaking.
The fourth and fifth batches of Project Chiraiyya were launched on 6th May 2017 and 17th September 2017 respectively. After the successful completion of the project in Neemka village, the RSSWLD has plans to replicate the project in other villages nearby.
