Summary

A life without education is not something many of us can even contemplate. Unfortunately, this remains a reality for many girls in India. For a host of different reasons, girls across the country are forced to drop out of school. You can make a difference by donating to CRY. With your help, we can ensure that 121,000 girl children across CRY-supported projects get back to school and complete their education. And lead the life they deserve.

Challenge

In India, uneducated girl children are still a reality. They face numerous hurdles on their road to education. The most difficult of these, is the mindset that a girl child is not a 'worthy-enough' investment. Girl child, with proper education, can bring about a cycle of positive change. They stay away from early marriages and child labor, going on to become strong and independent members of the society. They grow up to be empowered women capable of influencing the community they live in.

Solution

Right to School for 121,000 Girl Children across our project areas will ensure they enroll to school, not drop out and complete their school year. With your donations, CRY will mobilize and empower parents and communities with awareness against discrimination, child marriages and labor and promote education; ensure schools have facilities such as water, toilet, teachers, roads to school that keeps girl child in school with effective lobbying; make them ready and have access to higher education.

Long-Term Impact

The project aims to create an ecosystem that understands and gives importance to education for 121,000 girl children by creating an ecosystem where parents and communities are aware of ill effects of girl child marriages and labour and realise importance of education among them. Lobby with government making schools accessible with all amenities that will ensure a girl child will not drop out due to lack of same; bringing an end to girl child discrimination by denying them education.
