Quality education is a fundamental non-negotiable to overcome poverty and deprivation. Yet thousands of tribal girls grow up unable to read or write. Agragamee helps girls from tribal and other deprived communities read, learn and excel through an innovative, fun and child centred approach. We also reach out to the parents helping them understand the importance of educating girls and quality school education
Tribals Districts of Odisha have some of the lowest literacy rates in India. Despite schools in almost every village, learning levels are dismal. Parents with little or no school education themselves are unable to monitor their children's studies nor afford private tuition. Girls suffer the worst in all this, affected by discrimination and patriarchy at home and in school. Female literacy in tribal districts of South Odisha is between 35% and 38%
The project will provide quality education for 150 girls from poor families through the Agragamee School. This innovative and successful model includes supportive teaching learning material, in the form of fun and engaging workbooks, and story cards, charts, and rhyme books, libraries. Supportive training for teachers helps them shift to a creative childcentred approach. Agragamee also works with Government School for the spread of this model
The project will help poor tribal villages have a first generation of literate and educated girls, who will be able to access better information, resources and knowledge for a better social and economic future for themselves and their communities. They will also ensure the education of future generations, leading to an overall improvement in quality of life and wellbeing
