Study space

Great news we have spent time with over 3,000 girls aged 13-17 during our one-year campaign with Malala Fund. We are pretty proud that the Nobel Laureate’s organisation chose us to reach out to girls most at risk of missing out on their education in a mission to prevent them from being exploited.

We visited many schools and communities in a series of road shows led by or own hand-picked peer mentors from our slum schools and rehabilitation center who shared the legislation and laws in place to protect and empower girls and also ensure they receive free and equal rights to education. Inspired by the passion and knowledge of girls the same age of them speaking so eloquently those attending left feeling more informed and confident in standing up for their own rights and promised to spread the word to their friends, families, teachers and communities.

Closer to home, the campaign made us think about how we can do more for our own girls and one result was the launch of our Center of Excellence. Partly funded by Malala Fund we also used donations provided by you to create a study space where our girls can focus on their education. Following a consultation with the girls we developed private and group study spaces, a computer laboratory and a library with English and Marathi books. It also has two tablets and three laptops which students can borrow to play educational games, research for school and college projects and improve their computing skills. The space is proving popular already and we have further plans to add audio visual equipment to help them deliver more presentations.

Thank you – your money already goes a lot further than you can imagine and donate this Wednesday and it will be matched by a share of US$50,000 bonus funding which will help us provide even more educational resources.
