For disadvantaged young women to meet up with their responsibilities, they need to generate their own income and take decisions for their well-being. Disadvantaged young women capture all young women with fewer opportunities than their peers. They could also be referred to as young women at risk, vulnerable young women with fewer chances to achieve goals, such as education; disconnected or socially and economic exclusive young women.
