The GYAAN Center is a girls school, women’s cooperative and museum/exhibition space in the Thar Desert of Jaisalmer, India.
Economic disparities, gender discrimination, caste discrimination, and traditionalist values such as female infanticide, child marriage are prominent ways girls are held back, specifically in Rajasthan.
Through education, girls gain freedom to develop the skills and knowledge they need to build a brighter future.
School facilities include classrooms, a library, a computer center, and a bus facility to transport students from neighboring villages. Students will learn to read, write, and develop traditional artisan skills unique to the region. The school also provides a midday meal program to ensure proper nutrition and lessen family financial burden.
