Educate Girls

Educate Girls' vision is to achieve behavioral, social and economic transformation towards an India where all children have equal opportunities to access quality education. We leverage existing community and government resources to ensure that all girls are in school and learning well. We aim at improving access and quality of education for 4 million children living in underserved communities in India by 2018.

We would like to thank you for encouraging us in our journey to empower girls through education. With over 46,800 girls enrolled in schools and 1,044 Team Balika members recruited, trained and actively working in Pali and Jalore district in Rajasthan our program is going strong. 

With this we have achieved our target for the project “Team Balika: Champions for girls’ education!”.

68% girls in Rajasthan are child brides, Educate Girls sends them to school instead. Please visit our project “Child Brides: Send them to School instead” and continue supporting us.

Once again, thank you for your continuous support and encouragement.

Thank you again for your donations: with your support we have achieved a lot! These last three years, much has been done to enroll and retain girls into local government schools. In Pali, the number of out-of-school girls as per the government’s child tracking survey has been decreasing from 11,243 in 2010 to 9,438 in 2013. 88% of the out of school girls in this district  are now in school and learning through creative and interactive class room sessions.

Nonetheless there is still a lot to be done, as only 74% of the girls are enrolled in some of the blocks where Educate Girls operates in Jalore district. What is more, many girls from rural Rajasthan are also married off before they reach the legal age. They have to quit school to take care of their husbands  and family without a chance to improve their life conditions.

This is why we have to maintain our efforts to offer these girls the schooling they deserve. Education equips them with skills and knowledge that will prove to be useful for the rest of their life. But to succeed, we need your help! Every cent counts and word-of-mouth can go a long way.

It is quite easy to support our interventions. You can start by telling at least five of your friends about our work and encourage them to donate to our cause.

Remember that on June 11th, on GlobalGiving's Bonus Reward Day your donations may be matched up to 50%! If's never been so easy to create an impact and help girls get educated!

Help us extend our program!

Send girls to school!
Send girls to school!

Our latest "Send Child Brides to School" campaign raised awareness on the alarming situation of girls in Rajasthan, where 68% of them are married before the age of 18. To give them a better future and ensure their well-being, this tradition has to change in favor of education. Since 2007, Educate Girls tries to improve the quality of teaching and of school infrastructures by leveraging existing resources and empowering rural communities.

Thanks to your generosity, we have managed to enroll thousands of girls into schools in the last five years. We are proud of this incredible success but we keep in mind that there are still 4,000 young girls who remain out-of-school in the gender-gap districts of Pali and Jalore. This is why our staff works hand in hand with the government, the villagers and the teaching staff to create an impact in the field.

Unfortunately Pali and Jalore are not the only gender-gap districts in India. We have thus recently extended our program to Sirohi, where the literacy rate is alarmingly low (56.02%). We will now supervise another 542 villages, reaching out to 200,000 children - 90,000 of which are girls. We hope to make an impact and to give more options to these girls regarding their choices in life – but to do so we need your help!

We request you to support our interventions by telling at least five of your friends about our work and encourage them to donate.
Let’s change these girls’ lives and send them to school! Donate now to make gender inequality history!
