Young women and girls selected for girl project
New Girls Selected through Survey Visit in Feb 2013
Education is one of the major instruments of social change and it is the force, which brings changes in the traditional out look of the people, and it develops insight for judging things in their context. It is visualized that more the percentage of educated people more will be the rate of development.
Conflict-affected countries have some of the world’s worst education indicators, and girls are left furthest behind. Poverty effects interact with security fears over sexual violence and attacks by groups opposed to gender equity in education to keep girls out of school.
Purpose / Objective: capacity building, awareness and selecion of the new girls for the Girl Effect Fund project

The poor people of the village cannot afford the basic needs of children that’s why we provided providing them books, copies , stationary and uniform is also essential which will inactivate the children to go to school.
After the school built, some extra curriculum activities for children can be were influential
And helpful like, games quiz competition, sport activities and act activities
