Challenge

There's a Misconception among the communities that we serve in that, Vulnerable girl children are not fit to get educated and pursue their dreams, but should stay home, help their Parents . Even among the girls who do join school drop out rates on attaining puberty is especially common. Because of this poor attitude,& Misconception, there's a significant skew in the gender ratio of the children who pass out of school.

Solution

KARUCAN International,will empower girl children education by providing education support, noon-meal & transportation subsidies to deserving girl children in the communities we serve in. We shall try to correct the admission ratio skew by providing more of these benefits to the girl children, thus achieving a 47% of admission as girls overall. We shall also have no girls dropping out on reaching puberty. Quality education, noon meal and safe transportation motivate parents &Children in system.

Long-Term Impact

Confident, educated and healthy girl children will be able to pursue higher education and job opportunities in the fields of their choice. They will be pillars of support for their home, parents and the community. Gender skewing in the community will recede over time. Importantly, it also ensures that the next generation gets far better parenting and therefore a better life.
