Let every girl child feel the taste of Education

Summary

Education transforms human beings from ignorance to enlightenment and it's an important factor that fuels both social change and economic growth. In Rural India, girls face discrimination because of being born as girl. This leaves them at the bottom of the social ladder in terms of access to rights and developments. Education is one of the most significant means of empowering any individual or community in general and women & girls in particular.

India is actively pushing forward for revamping and restructuring education in the country. Thanks to the government schemes implemented like Sarva Siksha Abhiyan and Mid day Meal scheme due to which enrollment rates in schools have gone up.

Solution

In addition to the support of education department of government, this project will support the girl students with school kit containing notebooks, pencil box, compass box, etc. The project aims at reaching 600 school going girls of Rayagada district of Odisha state with this support.

Illiteracy is a grave obstacle to social and economic development and extension of literacy is a pre requisite for development. By supporting the girl students in their education the obstacles in the girls education will be reduced to a greater extent. The impact of girls education will be multiplied in the society. An educated girl of today will present the educated society in future.
