Effective results to change girls' future

It’s been an exciting quarter for Educate Girls! We now operate in three districts of Rajasthan and impact more than 5,000 rural schools. Our program is expanding and we recently welcomed 400 new Team Balika members on board! These volunteers act as champions of girls’ education inside their community, where they make sure all girls are enrolled and retained into school.

We were particularly thrilled last July to host our first panel discussions in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. These events publicly introduced our Payment-by-Results (PbR) initiative, a solution to fund our programs depending on their effective results. This financing scheme requires different actors working together to ensure we deliver the best possible outcomes to our beneficiaries!

Our pilot program has already been launched in the district of Sirohi, where it will be run in approximately 200 schools until 2015. During these two years, our team will make sure that more girls benefit from quality education and have access to infrastructures that match their basic needs.

Now it’s your time to help! Your donation can make all the difference by sending Indian girls back to school and offering them the bright future they deserve! Thank you for your generous contribution!
