Challenge

In India, girls don't show up to classrooms due to gender-related barriers.This problem is grievous in the villages,where merely 40% girls reach grade 6.Girls in these remote & tribal villages belong to extremely socio-economically marginalized communities where their education is considered futile. They face constant threat of child marriage,early childbirth,poor maternal health,trafficking,malnutrition & abuse brought on by patriarchy,inter-generational poverty & systemic apathy.

Solution

Focused on high incidence villages, we work to increase the enrolment & retention of marginalized girls in grades 1-10.Our staff & community volunteers go door-to-door to identify every out of school girl in the area & convince parents to enrol girls, mobilise community through meetings & support school management efforts.To ensure retention,we keep a track of the girls.We keep going back until every girl is enrolled & learning well.

Long-Term Impact

Educating girls is the single best investment a nation can make.Research shows that educating girls decreases child & maternal mortality,birth rates & violence against women,while massively improving family health & national income.It ensures she educates her own children, makes more informed decisions for herself & her family & enhances her chances of finding decent work. Hence opening doors to achieving many sustainable development goals.
