One of the main objective of the Trust is “Empowerment of Women”.

To this end, the Trust runs two girl’s hostels for rural poor and deprived girls at Desuri, District Pali, Rajasthan and second one at Keru 25 kms away from Jodhpur city. Both these institutions being run by the Trust aim at empowering girls through proper formal education which includes extra-curricular activities.
