Challenge

The efforts of government are not likely to make the necessary impact if the core of the Indian society especially those at the countryside do not appreciate the fact that education is not only a basic right but also an essential resort to wean-off the excruciating poverty in rural areas. Most of the girls are dropped out after 5th std in the project area.

Solution

The project will bring on board educational sector stakeholders involving, District Education Department, School Management Committees (SMC), PTAs, parents, guardians and other community-based institutions, to work together on issues that will create conducive atmosphere for children in the deprived rural communities to attend and stay in school. Advocacy and sensitization campaigns will be used to garner the commitment of the change agents.

Long-Term Impact

1) Community sensitization fora on girls' non-school attendance conducted in seven communities. 2) 200 girls out of school are provided with support and counselled to start or continue schooling. 3) It will stopped child marriage in the project area.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a DOCX file (projdoc.docx).
