40,000 families in Anupshahr live below poverty line and 80% of the girls coming from these rural families do not go to school as investing in a girl child education is considered unimportant. Girls are considered as a social burden and married off at early age. Unwanted, uneducated, forgotten, discriminated she ends up into a vulnerable position. Gendered notions and lack of finances prevents parents from sending their daughters to school, thereby, not allowing 'Her' to become Independent..


This project offers a unique 'Educational Package' to girls wherein, tuition fees, books/stationary, uniforms, healthy meals (3 times a day), transportation, timely medical check- ups etc. are provided free of cost. Along with, a scholarship of Rs. 10 for each day's attendance. Parents bear 'no costs' towards their daughters' education. Quality education, life- skills, leadership skills etc. learned at the school would facilitate 'her' in becoming the 'role model' for other rural girls to follow

Long-Term Impact

525 underprivileged rural girls will receive quality education, good health status, employable skills and a substantial amount of money ($800-900)deposited in her bank account which she gets post school completion. Educational training received at the school,shared with the family and community would facilitate in transforming the stereotypical mind-set of people towards girl child education,thereby, improving literacy levels and socio economic status of disadvantaged rural girls/women.
