The Changeloomers: Rajani

Theme: Changelooms, Youth

As a girl from a rural village, Rajani struggled to get an education, bravely moving away from her home in order to continue her studies. Whilst at college, she learnt the martial art of karate. She has since returned to her village, determined to empower other girls like herself by setting up a centre to teach them karate as a method of self-defence and bamboo jewellery making as a livelihood activity.

Rajani was supported by PACS as part of Changelooms - a year-long leadership programme for 100 passionate and enthusiastic young people who were supported and mentored to lead projects that addressed social exclusion within their communities. The programme was run in association with youth organisations Pravah and Commutiny - the Youth Collective.
