Beautician Course Completed!
Guria conducts beautician courses for older girls who attend the Varanasi Non-Formal Education centre. These courses are an important part of Guria’s work to provide these girls with the vocational training that can hopefully bring them work outside the red light area in the future. About 25 girls participated in the beautician courses and learned hairdressing, henna, makeup, and salon etiquette. On Jan. 6 2014, the girls who partook in the beautician course received a government-issued certificate as the culmination of their hard work. The government agreed to work together with Guria to ensure that these girls had access to the certification that they deserve. Congratulations to the beautician-graduates!!
