Challenge

'Udaan' which literally means 'flight' is a part of CARE India's efforts to ensure education for girls of marginalized groups. CARE with the help of local NGOs has been managing Udaan schools in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Orissa and Delhi National Capital Region. The girls aged 10-14 years are at extreme social and economic risk. Udaan enables these girls to complete primary education (grade 1-5) in a period of eleven months and attain leadership and life skills.

Solution

Udaan provides learning opportunity to out-of-school girls every year. These girls are in the age group 11-14 years and have either dropped out or never gone to school. With Udaan, they get an opportunity to break the vicious cycle of illiteracy and complete Class 5-level primary education in a period of 11 months - a successful example of accelerated learning approach.

Long-Term Impact

To break the social and psychological barriers which make communities and children believe that education is irrelevant, Promote Leadership skills among girls, Provide a joyful learning environment in order to enhance their interest in continuing further education, Girls are given opportunity to get involved in non-stereotypical games to develop their confidence, ability to express and decision making.
