MTN provides practical training programs for village girls and widows. This nine-month training program teaches young women literacy, hygiene and moral training along with sewing classes. India women are treated as second-class citizens but at the
institute these women receive love and attention and come to understand the principle of equality between men and women, which greatly enhances their self-esteem. Once a woman has successfully completed this program she is encouraged to return to
her community and share her newly acquired skills. When these once beaten down women return to their villages, they have a positive effect on their entire communities.
