New Delhi, Feb 22 : To help and support young girl students in Delhi, Women's International Networking (WIN), a independent global leadership organisation will give financial aid for higher studies, an official said.

"Under a programme called WIN girls, ten students each from two NGOs CEQUIN (Centre For Equity and Inclusion) and Stree Shakti will get Rs.22,000 each annually to help them for higher studies," Rekha Mody, president of NGO Stree Shakti said.

Apart from this WIN, which has associated with various countries in the world, will also help women create an inclusive and sustainable business culture and new job opportunities like a women's cab service, by partnering with big corporates.

"WIN basically helps link NGOs dealing with women issues in India to international corporates like Shell, a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies, so they can develop a cordial relationship and innovative business models, financial aids and help them the women," Mody said.

Speaking about the WIN girls, Kristin Engvig, founder and president of WIN said: "It is been 16 years we have started this network across Europe and now we have come to India.

"The WIN girls is a small initiative, hope this would get bigger in the coming years."
