Challenge

In the world, more than 31 million girls living in difficult economic and social conditions can't attend primary and lower secondary school. Without education, girls are more likely to marry and have children when they are still young, besides not getting a decent job that could lead them out of poverty. Thanks to girls education we break the vicious circle of poverty, increase between 18% and 25% in future wages, age of marriage is postponed (in Bangladesh em involve 59% of girls under 18years

Solution

The "Pink Bags" project will provide scholarships for deserving young girl in the Dalit community students living in difficult economic and social conditions, helping them to get a graduation, a vocational qualification or a master's degree. Beside providing financial support to girls starting from grade IV up to college, the project will sensitise local authorities and communities through seminars against early marriage and for girls' rights and will advocate for timely birth registrations.

Long-Term Impact

The project will prevent forced child marriages, reduce the rate of maternal mortality and increase the probability that their children will attend school and be in good health. In the long term, this can bring girls and their families outside the cycle of poverty.
