Challenge

Throughout India, gender disparity remains a significant barrier to education. The result: 3 million girls across the country are out of school, and the female literacy rate is only 61%. These figures reflect the rigid social systems, gender-based discrimination, neglect and lack of support by parents and community. Exacerbating the issue of access to education, the quality of education available is usually weak, leading to dismal learning outcomes.

Solution

We work towards holistically tackling issues at the root of gender inequality in India's educational system. The screenings of 'He Named Me Malala' will inspire and mobilize community members, parents, teachers, youth volunteers and students. It is expected to motivate community members to be more proactively engaged in girls' education, increase the enrollment of out-of-school girls as well as increase the retention of girls in schools in high-risk villages in Udaipur.

Long-Term Impact

Achieve behavioral, social and economic transformation for all girls towards an India where all children have equal opportunities to access quality education.
