Marriages of girls at an early age are a matter of concern in rural villages of India and, Uttarakhand has also seen the same situation. But G.K Swamy founded the Purkal Youth Development Society (PYDS), a CBSE school in the village of uttarakhand.
In 2003 after PYDS had started functioning Swamy organised some funds through a society called Adopt and carried several works in villages of Uttarakhand. The changes have occurred in just ten years or 15 years ago, the Purkal School started in the village, and the society was registered.
Many locals got a job and started working with the school itself. Simultaneously, the Stree Shakti Operation, a livelihood programme that has almost 170 local women working for it started and many local women found a livelihood opportunity for the first time. Now hundreds of girls are getting education and becoming sustainable as because of this kind of noble initiative.
