HEMLATA is unlocking the potential for young women to redefine themselfs as role models, who are transforming communities and inspiring social change.
HEMLATA’s vision is to shape the future for young women in underserved populations to lead lives of dignity and self-worth.
HEMLATA’s mission is committed to empowering young women as role models, to transform communities and inspire social change.
Taking a focussed and qualitative approach, a holistic 3 pillar program model was designed to support and empower young women in the age group of 18 to 23, post their last year of school.
Aimed to bring about systemic change within the given ecosystem, this innovative model encompasses the journey of a young woman, or HEMLATA Scholar across her college/university period of 3-4 years, beginning with intervention, to providing quality tertiary education and enabling opportunities towards empowerment of the Scholar as a role model.
The design of the HEMLATA Impact Scholarship directly targets the UN SDGs of 2030, with a focus on SDG #4: Quality Education, and SDG #5: Gender Equality. The program design also indirectly works towards sustaining SDG#1: SDG#3: SDG#8: SDG#10: and SDG#17. In all, HEMLATA adheres to 7 of the 17 UNSDGs.
