Vacha’s various projects are implemented in the State of Maharashtra. Major focus of interventions is in districts of Mumbai and Thane.
Vacha’s interventions are targeted towards marginalized youth in second decade of life. These are the young people who live in poor neighbourhoods popularly called slums and referred by Vacha and people inhabiting these as basti. Though both girls and boys participate in our activities, we primarily work with girls. Vacha also visibalises and advocates for girls and women by participating in various networks and campaigns, organising seminars and conferences and production of publications.
We have reached out to 44690 people in the year 2015-16.
Many more lives other than those reflected in our numbers, have been touched, changed or impacted as with the ripple effect, the girls and youth participating in our interventions have assumed agency to bring about change in their families, friends and communities.
