Challenge

Most families living around Cherlapally are from the lower strata of society earning livelihood through daily wage labor. Education of the girl child is never given any importance and most girls are married off right after puberty. Whenever there is financial distress, education of the girl child is the first casualty. This project will help 200 girl children, all of them first-generation school-goers to obtain high school education and have better opportunities in future.

Solution

The project will help the beneficiary girl children - attend school and pursue studies and encouraged to attain highest grade possible - think about their future and link studies to their career plans - enjoy a secure and supportive family environment - participate in school/community events - provide mutual support and encouragement to each other so that the children feel supported and motivated to pursue their studies and feel valued members of the school community.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide education to 200 first generation school going girls and help them attain high school education at the least. Beneficiaries who complete school to secondary level are supported with higher education, training, apprenticeships and/or employment. About 150 families (750 people) will be direct and indirect beneficiaries of this initiative.
