Summary

Transform Communities By Educating the Girl Child IIMPACT provides educational opportunity to girls, from socially and economically disadvantaged communities of India, who traditionally have no access to schooling. Our aim is to break the cycle of illiteracy that girls from such communities are mired in through local community-based Learning Centers, where they get meaningful and stimulating education for Years 1 - 5 and are guided to their entry in to mainstream education.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The girl child in India can be discriminated against at many levels – first before birth, when she is an infant, through her schooling years and then into her youth and adulthood. Girls of school going age can either not sent to school at all, or made to stay at home if domestic needs demand. This problem is specially acute in certain rural communities across India. This is most often rooted in the belief that education is of no value to girls.

How will this project solve this problem?

IIMPACT through its education program will mobilise and motivate more non-school going first generation learners and ensure provision of quality primary education, putting them firmly on the track of literacy. These girls will, in turn, positively impact the lives of their sisters and the girls around them. Fathers and brothers will be appreciative of the benefits of a literate girl in the household. This is a big step forward in the communities where IIMPACT works.

Potential Long Term Impact

Girls who stay in school get married at more appropriate ages, have children later and have fewer children. They can take better care of their own and their children's nutrition and health. Education opens up livelihood options and allows the girls to contribute to the economic upliftment of their families. Educated women make for informed voters and thereby improve governance around them. Most importantly, education gives these girls a sense of self; a sense that they can influence their lives.
