Challenge

More than 8 million children ages 6-13 in India are out of school, either never having attended or dropping out before completing 6th grade. The majority are girls and reasons are frequently economic; children must work to contribute to the family income, or must care for siblings. As a result, female literacy rate in India is less than 54%, compared to 75% for men. By giving these girls the knowledge and tools to break the cycle of poverty, all those generations that follow will benefit.

Solution

The solution to poverty is complex. We provide top-quality English-medium K-12 education, regular health care, nutritious meals, character/ life skills and then help students transition into higher education and employment to reach self-sufficiency.

Long-Term Impact

Breaking the cycle of poverty impacts the student, her family, and future generations. We also teach every child that she has the obligation to give back and make the world a better place. This multiplier effect will ultimately transform communities.
