When we heard about the Milaan Girl Icon Fellowship, a non-governmental organization (NGO) focused on educating and empowering adolescent girls in rural India, we were eager to help it thrive.
The fellowship combats child marriage, domestic violence, and poor education by teaching the girls life skills and educating them on their rights.
To help the NGO grow, we embedded digital technologies in its internal processes to cut the fellowship's selection time by 50%. Now, more girls can enroll faster, which is crucial. A lengthy process could prove catastrophic for girls facing child marriages.
The program has skyrocketed from an average of 100 fellows per cycle to 500.
