Journeys – Trajectories of Education and Empowerment among young women in the Auroville Bioregion


Journeys is our attempt to share the stories of young women in LEC, their difficulties and challenges to a path of dreams and aspirations, and in many cases, to successful actualization of those dreams after joining LEC. The stories are about their struggles to come out of their cocoons and to overcome the many limitations imposed on them by their families or the society. More importantly, the stories are about how they view themselves today. Through sharing the journeys of these women, we seek to describe the invaluable work of LEC in transforming the lives of these young women.
