Non-formal Education for Disadvantaged Girls

Non-formal Education for Disadvantaged Girls


This project will provide non-formal education for 750 disadvantaged women and girls who by difficult circumstances have stopped formal schooling and live hand-to-mouth existence in remote communities. Non-formal education will be through individual coaching, small group discussions and practical site visits to successful projects in the locality.

Women and girls in difficult circumstances have very little chance of improving and they live their whole lives in misery and poverty. Chances of the improvement of their well-being is small and they often repeat the cycle of misery to their children into the next generations. There is a need to empower them in order to break the cycle.


We will provide non-formal education and materials support for disadvantaged women and girls that is tailor-fitted to their needs and capabilities. Most often non-formal training is one-shot and ineffective and we will turn this around by providing education that is suited for the resources, capabilities and situation of the individual.

Long-Term Impact

The social and economic well-being of women and girls is important in order to develop healthy communities capable of propelling their growth and development on their own with little help from outside. In order to do this, proper education and pump-priming support is urgently needed.
