The project aims at poor 50 rural and merit girl students to pursue their higher studies and become gainfully employed. We have identified the rural and merit students who are mostly from economically low background, landless, orphan, semi orphan, disabled students who are on verge of dropping out of college. we propose to support their college studies with your financial support. we will provide tuition fee, college, stationery, bus passes, hostel fee, monthly mentorship programmes.
Large numbers of rural girl children do not have opportunity to go for higher studies. parents drop them out of colleges as the college fee is very high and cannot afford to pay also the hostel fee. therefore, they either dropout of college or get marry at early marriages. The problem is gender discrimination, parents negligence about girl child education, family poverty, lack of availability of colleges in villages, lack of security to girl children. therefore, we need to promote girl education
Chilume organization has been working for promoting girl child education through CSR support. We have good network with good numbers of colleges in bangalore city and hostels where there is security and opportunity to learn computer, spoken english, etc. Besides, we have good rapport with parents through self help groups and other community development programmes in villages. by providing scholarship to girl child, we will ensure girl continue college, job placed, gender development and equality
In long term the project will become a model and successful girl students at least encourage their own parents to ensure thier own sisters/siblings to go for higher studies, and get good job. parents will become motivators and interested to send all their girl child alike to colleges. panchayat will allocate some funds for girl child education. Similarly many CSR projects could be tapped to support girl child education, prevent early marriages, decrease gender based discrimination.
