The Global Spring Asia Fund supports Terre des Hommes with empowering girls from Devadasi families through vocational training.
Global Spring is initiated in 2014 by Anja Docter and Carine Metselaar, who wanted to contribute to the personal and professional development of vulnerable young people in Asia. Their frequent travels to Asia made them aware of the fact that many children and adolescents by no means benefit from the economic growth in the region and run the risk of falling behind completely.
This fund will contribute to various projects in the field of vocational training and job creation for vulnerable youngsters in Asia to combat child exploitation. For the coming 3 years, the fund will support the project Sabala,helping Devadasi and Dalith families overcome poverty and exploitation through vocational training.
