Help Girls in India Complete Their Education

by CARE
Vetted

Summary

Of the millions of children around the world who never get the chance to attend school, 2/3 are girls. Most live in poverty, working to support their families at the expense of their own education. For these girls, CARE in India is working to open new educational options-before it's too late.

Challenge

In many places in India, girls aren't allowed to participate in their future. Denied education and access to resources, they are trapped in a cycle of poverty. Given the chance to learn and create their own way, successful women and girls uplift their families and communities in a direct and lasting way.

Solution

"Udaan" is an accelerated learning program that targets older girls who dropped out or never attended school and brings students up to a fifth-grade level in just 11 months, created especially for older girls who may never have set foot in school before.

Long-Term Impact

After completing the program, 89% of girls go onto secondary school or college.
