We will provide alternative education services to 300 rural women and girls who are no longer in school in order to improve their abilities to provide income and nutrition for themselves and their families. Alternative education will focus on home economics, on and off-farm livelihoods, micro-entrepreneurship and social skills. These are provided via modular learning and on-site educational activities in our training and demonstration center.
Education for women and girls in remote villages in usually stops when they are able to read and write. Seldom they complete secondary school and going to college for a degree is a miracle. We will provide alternative education for this vulnerable and disadvantaged women and girls so that they are able to rise-up and prosper equally with men. The need to break the education and poverty cycle is imperative and we can do this via alternative education.
Most often women and girls in poor farming families are uneducated and they live a life of misery and powerlessness because of the lack of education. We will provide alternative learning for them focusing on life skills such as home economics, entrepreneurship and livelihood side by side with basic literacy and following health protocols during this Coronavirus pandemic.
Women and girls belonging to poor and vulnerable families are able to contribute to the improvement of their communities through basic and well-focused education and related support. The positive impact of this initiative will be for generations to come.
