Team Balika are village based volunteers who facilitate scalable and sustainable community owned programs.

Team Balika encourage enrollment of girls in school by mentoring the girls as well as their parents. Team Balika along with the School Management Committees (SMCs), work towards creating girl friendly schools. Through their collaborating efforts of Team Balika and SMCs the number of schools with separate girls' toilets and drinking water facilities has increased from 44% to 71% and from 46% to 82% respectively.

For every girl that gets enrolled in school, there is one less a Child Bride. These champions for girl child education animate the principles of ‘My Village, My Problems and I am the Solution’. They spread awareness on the importance of girl child education and prevent girls from becoming child brides.
