Financial Aid for providing hostel facility to Transgender students


Transgenders share the same hopes and dreams as any other individual in our society. 58 percent of TG students drop out before completing 10th grade (24 percent of TG students drop out even before completion of 9th grade. Reasons for this include- severe harassment making studies impossible and other gender related negative experiences at school. Inorder to help such school dropouts continue their education, Social Justice Department has implemented scholarship scheme for Transgenders.

TG community is still ostracized in society and cannot take up job offers or continue education due to lack of accommodation facility. Though there has been improvement in the mindset of the people, still the stigma of giving transgender persons a house exists in society. Due to this problematic scenario, transgenders who are pursuing the scholarship scheme are forced to discontinue their studies. For addressing this issue, the Department of Social Justice has introduced a scheme that provides an amount of Rs 4,000/- as financial assistance to Transgender community as rent for finding hostel facility / accommodation.
