This project  too, like Urja, imparts knowledge, exposure and life skills to girls as well as boys in the age group of 10-18 years, in safe spaces in their bastis (poor neighbourhoods/ slums). In addition, it also has remedial classes in Government schools to improve Marathi/Urdu, Hindi and English language skills for young boys and girls in the age group of 10 to 12 years.

This project has initiated youth groups in bastis that take action in their neighbourhoods on civic issues such as safety of girls and women.
