Madhumita is a 16–year–old living in the slums of Kolkata. She is in the tenth grade, and is full of creativity, talent, and passion. Madhumita is a very motivated student, but unfortunately her parents are unable to pay for the additional costs related to school — printing, uniforms, books, and travel. Girls' Voices, a signature program of GreaterGood.org, is working with Salt Lake City Prayasam to make sure Madhumita can stay in school!

In order to prepare for her Class 10 Board Examination, Madhumita will need to raise the funds to cover the costs of her schooling. She has three more years of school to go, and is determined to complete her secondary education and create a new future for herself.

Girls' Voices, GreaterGood.org's newest signature program, is inspiring girls in the slums of Kolkata, to create movies about their hopes and dreams. Madhumita's project "Sujog" beautifully shows how girls, even though talented and motivated, can miss out on opportunities just because they are girls. Madhumita creates a believable world, expressing her visual talent, and her ability to direct young actors. You will be amazed that a 16 year old created this relevant and moving film!

Watch Madhumita's Film:

"Gender disparity has its legacy since the prehistoric age! It is even more complex today. Shooting this film with other girls was a great experience, showing what many girls have to go through." – Madhumita

You can help. For just $7.00, you can send Madhumita to school for one week! Help Madhumita make her dreams come true and support her with a donation to the books and fees that can help her complete her studies!


About Girls' Voices:

Girls' Voices is a signature program of GreaterGood.org intended to raise funds for girls' secondary education through media made by girls.

The intention of this project is to empower girls to utilize videography and to raise funds, 100% of which will directly contribute to scholarship funds for girls facing financial barriers to completing secondary education.
