Beauty Therapy Training
This is a brand new programme starting with an idea and a new vision. Since the beginning of our sewing training at Open Hands Education it has come to our awareness that some girls are not interested in sewing but could become very excited to learn a new type of skill. This would be looking after the women's beauty styling, henna designs and hair styled for festivals, parties and the, all important Indian Weddings. We are currently in the process of finding a training centre in Delhi where my wife, Pratigya can become fully trained in the city and bring those skills back to my home village of Sujata and to her family home village of Dedma and pass on her knowledge. It is our vision that through a sponsor her wages might be covered as she teaches in both villages. So in this way the training remains free to these two small rural communities. This will then become a second implemented programme for girls to access new skills for their lives ahead. In 2018-2019 we envision this Programme will begin to be implemented.

"After attending my first Indian wedding I became aware of many secret hopes and dreams of the local young women. One girl who looked after all the hair needs of the special guests for the wedding mentioned her hopes of to one day do Beauty Therapy training. By her age, I knew it would not be long before she would be married off and have to leave her village behind and the reputation she had with hair and henna. Any chance to do further study would be short lived as there was a high likelihood her future husband's home would not have power or training facilities nearby due to coming from rural backgrounds. Rural women of the lower castes sadly are still not encouraged to this day, to have aspirations of any type of advanced education. I grieved for her loss of opportunity along with the many other girls, so have sought a remedy for the problem. We really need your support to make these opportunities possible."
