About Roshni: Roshni is a social enterprise dedicated to alleviating poverty in India by empowering girls to realize their highest potential. The barriers to underprivileged girls’ entry into the Indian competitive mainstream are their fundamental lack of awareness, life skills, employability skills, and self-confidence. Through employability and life skills training, Roshni seeks to develop this pool of underprivileged, untapped talent. Developing the foundation skill set enables improved accessibility, increased inclusiveness, and upward mobility.
Founded in 2008 by Ms.SaimaHasan, Roshni has trained over 20,000 girls and empowered over 80,000 family and community members. Over 80% of Roshni alumni have broken the cycle of poverty and are pursuing higher education along with part-time employment while others have been awarded academic scholarships through Roshni.
