The CherYsh framework for change relies on systemic interventions to improve the quality of living for girls and women in rural India. The framework captures three dimensions of a girl’s journey from Learning to Livelihood. CherYsh implements programs along these three dimensions - early learning (EDUCATE), skills and vocational training (PREPARE), and livelihoods (SECURE).
