Challenge

In rural India, girls are unwanted and discriminated against. The practice of female infanticide - when female babies are killed after birth - is still widely practised in the region in which Pardada Pardadi operates. Girls are often put to work at home or farming chores and rarely get to attend school before they're married at the age of 14. Pardada Pardadi believes education, opportunity, and female empowerment can change all these problems.

Solution

In addition to a value-based education, our students are trained in the art of producing textiles. As an incentive, PPES deposits 10 rupees in a girl's account for every day she attends school, which she will access upon graduation.

Long-Term Impact

Every student at Pardada Pardadi acts as an advocate for change, both in their families and in the community at large. They are both role models and change agents.
