The Peter und Luise Hager Foundation has been funding education for girls in the Indian city of Mysore since 2016

Qualification and education inspire self-confidence. Especially in India, where women and girls are at higher risk of exploitation and oppression, a sound education is an effective means of combating poverty, injustice and extremism. The aim of the Peter und Luise Hager Foundation therefore is to support the education of Indian girls, creating opportunities for them to enjoy a better future.

Premanjali is a boarding school in Mysore, which LIFT e.V. has been operating together with the Indian religious order Helpers of Mary since mid-2015. It provides education and training to girls in India to encourage and inspire much-needed social change. The Peter und Luise Hager Foundation is a partner in the project.

Premanjali is a suburb of the southern Indian city of Mysore. Its boarding school provides accommodation for 30 girls who are working towards their school leaving exams or want to embark upon a college course. Also under the care of the Helpers of Mary, it takes in particularly gifted girls after the 10th grade who are working towards their school-leaving exams at junior college and then want to start a college course. For all of the girls, living and studying at Premanjali represents an incredible opportunity.

The girls are all highly motivated and usually pass their exams with good or excellent grades. Their stories are very different: one turned down a higher education scholarship because she had to earn money quickly. Her father was sick and unemployed, while her mother worked as a maid far away from home. But she quickly found a job and fancied distance learning. Most girls recognise the value of education and are passionate about it.

Another girl was only five when she bore witness to the death of her mother in a fire. When her father remarried, her stepmother abused her. She found refuge with her grandmother, who then fell ill with cancer. A chain of misfortune. The education she receives in Premanjali is her only hope of standing on her own two feet.

Premanjali has already celebrated amazing successes, but has also suffered some major setbacks. In 2020, heavy rains made the living quarters uninhabitable. LIFT paid for the renovations at a cost of around 17,000 euros.

During the pandemic, colleges in India, including Premanjali, were also often closed. The school did facilitate online teaching, but not all of the girls were able to participate equally due to a lack of electricity or a poor Internet connection at home, for instance. There is now a lot of catching up to do. The Peter und Luise Hager Foundation will continue to support them.
