Girl Stars - Anita the Beekeeper
Uploaded on Feb 19, 2008

Anita Khushwaha is a beekeeper in Bochaha village, Muzzafarpur district, Bihar. When Anita was young her parents did not want her to go to school, they asked Anita to look after the goats instead of going to school.

The "Girl Stars" project includes this series of films documenting the stories of girls from the most disadvantaged communities across five northern states of India who, through attaining education, have managed to break the shackles of socio-economic constraints and make successful, self-sufficient lives for themselves. These young women have become role models in their communities and beyond, inspiring girls to go to school and continue their education.
