Challenge

In a country where only 40% of children attend secondary school, KGBV's provide disadvantaged girls mostly in rural areas with the chance to continue their education and gain critical thinking skills.

Solution

CARE India is working with KGBV schools and teachers in Uttar Pradesh to increase the quality of education and teach girls critical life skills to ensure their future success.

Long-Term Impact

Apart from gaining an upper primary education, they are taught important life skills life self-confidence, critical and practical thinking etc. The teachers work tirelessly to create an environment that is conducive for the girls' development, and are greatly instrumental in helping them realise their potential and nurture new dreams.
