Kavita is 17 years old. After her father died, her older brother was responsible for supporting the entire family. His meager wages supported her, her mother, and eight siblings. When Kavita heard about the vocational training program at Bal Ashram, she joined immediately. At the ashram, she participated in a four-month beautician course. This program was a turning point in Kavita’s life. After completion, she started a beauty parlor in her home, which was the first salon in her village. Once opened, girls started coming to her for haircuts. Due to her skill, Kavita is now the go-to stylist for all wedding parties! She is financially independent; Kavita’s income is equivalent to the earnings of everyone else in her family combined. She is helping relieve her family’s financial burden and is able to pay her younger siblings’ school fees.
