Challenge

In India, more than 7 million children are out of school. Girls are less likely to enroll in school and more likely than boys to drop out, as they face considerable barriers to education. CARE has found that education plays a critical role in breaking cycles of illiteracy and poverty, and that education for women and girls has wide-reaching benefits for themselves as well as their families. CARE believes that girls' education yields some of the highest returns of all development investments.

Solution

This project will provide a new educational experience for girls and teachers in rural areas. The laptops will enable girls to experience technology in the classroom and supplement their learning for better school performance.

Long-Term Impact

Students can improve critical thinking, financial literacy, math, science and writing skills, which will boost confidence and better prepare them for life's challenges ahead. Teachers will gain access to additional resources to improve their classes.
