Send 100 girls to school in rural Rajasthan

by Vatsalya

Summary

This project will encourage community from rural India to send their daugthers to school, who otherwise remain illiterate and spend lifetime in ignorance, hardship, and rearing children the whole life. These girls do not attend school because of lack of facility in surrounding areas and fear of safety of girls in commuting to school.This ultimately result in child marriage and that is why every third girl child is married before attaining adulthood.

Challenge

In rural society, the 'honor' factor is still supreme in context of girls. Any action; deliberate or accidental affecting a girl's image negatively is considered a blemish on the family honor and so the parents would resort to a simple and noncontroversial action which is to simply to retain them at home. They have to discontinue their schooling as soon as they hit puberty and are married off as soon as they are 15-16.

Solution

We propose transportation to ensure safety of girls to attend school. Additionally these girls would be given mid day meals to keep their nutritious status high during the school. The toilet facilities will help in keeping high standard of hygiene and lesser chances for dropout of girls. Basic facilities of books and dresses will be provided to girls so that parents don't feel additional burden.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help 100 girls educate and empower these girls to live life with dignity and remain healthy. They will take their family out of poverty condition and will be able to delay the marriage.
