With multiple original residents of the Unatti Group Home for Girls reaching adult age,
the Unatti Reintegration Program was created in 2017 to aid the girls as they transition to independent, self-reliant members of the community.
Upon completing their education, it is common for our graduates to return to their homes of origin and become the breadwinners for their birth families. The transition back to impoverished surroundings, with roles of leadership in a male-dominated culture, can be challenging. Additionally, the socio-economic pressure to provide for a family and potentially begin their own requires culturally-sensitive preparation and support.
The program’s reintegration officer begins working individually with each girl two years prior to their transition. Each transition is tailor-made to each individual’s specific needs and circumstances.
Saraswoti spent the majority of her life as a resident of Unatti Foundation's Group Home for Girls. A superb student, she went on to study radiology and obtained full time work in her field. As she transitioned to an independent career professional, and returned to her home of origin, it was necessary to prepare her for adult life.
