BETI (Better Education Through Innovation) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of disempowered adolescent girls and their communities in rural areas in India through informal education and vocational training. This thesis focuses on BETI's use of nontraditional methodologies, particularly performing arts (music, dance, and theater), to empower these girls and to engage with their communities. Participating in performance allows for individuals to gain self-awareness and to experience an increase in confidence, which better equips them to change their realities in a positive way.
