Field Visits to Rural Villages

As part of the selection process for scholarships to the WISH
program, and also to develop an appropriate plan of action for each girl, a social worker will visit their native village within the first 30 days of admission. Subsequent follow up visits are conducted throughout the girls’ training, and up to one year after graduation. Building a loving relationship with family, friends and key community members helps to document case histories and find creative solutions for
individual and social transformation.
