Scholarships for 50 Girls in New Delhi

by Centre for Social Research


CSR will provide extra tuition, additional nutrition, and other costs associated with school (such as: uniforms, books, and school supplies) to girls who are attending free government schools. We need to raise an additional $10,000 by the end of the year.

While primary education is free for girls in India, this does not ensure that girls are going to school or that they will succeed in their studies. Secondary costs that contribute greatly to a child's success in school are difficult for low-income families to afford. Additionally, many of these girls face violence and gender discrimination, making it even more difficult for them to attend and excel in school.


The project will sponsor the secondary costs of a successful education that families are not able to cover: additional tutorials/tuition, school supplies, books and uniforms, good nutrition. It will also support families in encouraging the education of girl children throughout the community and encouraging regular school attendance. For just $200, you can ensure that in 2016 a girl has books, clothing, and a good nutrition - all critical resources that help ensure that children learn well.

Long-Term Impact

The project will ensure that 40 girls are equipped to excel in school and receive a crucial primary education. This foundation will empower girls throughout their lives to be financially independent and to break the cycle of gender violence that persist when girls are not educated or invested in. Educating one girl has an important multiplier effect. Educating these 40 girls will increase the financial stability and long-term well-being of 200 family members directly.
