Education for all girls!

Leveraging existing community and government resources to ensure that all girls are in school and learning well.

India was ranked as worst amongst the G20 countries to be a woman in, and 4th worst in the world (Source: Expert poll by TrustLaw, legal news service of Thomson Reuters Foundation) in 2012. This ranking reflects rigid social systems, limiting attitudes towards gender roles, neglect and lack of support by parents and community. Such discrimination has resulted in India being home to largest number of illiterate women in the world over 200 million (Souce: UNESCO, 2014) with a female literacy rate of 61% (Source: UNESCO, 2015) and 3 million (Source: SRI- IMRB National Sample Survey of Estimation of Out-of-school-children 2014) eligible girls being out-of-school.

Exacerbating the issue of access to education, the quality of education provided in government primary schools is mostly very weak, resulting in inferior learning outcomes. In rural India, only 47.8 % children in Class V can read a Class II level text (Source: ASER Report, 2016). India ranks amongst the lowest at 105th position among 129 countries on the Education Development Index.

Founded in 2007, Educate Girls is a non-governmental organization that holistically tackles issues at the root of gender inequality in India’s educational system. Educate Girls aims to achieve behavioural, social and economic transformation for all girls in India’s gender gap and educationally backward districts. With a focus on enrollment, retention and learning, Educate Girls aims to provide quality education for all under-served and marginalized girls by mobilizing and leveraging public, private, and community resources to improve access to education and school quality.

Educate Girls has metamorphosed from a 500-school pilot in 2007 into a 16,000+ schools program spread across over 12,000+ villages across Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. Since inception, Educate Girls has enrolled over 150,000 girls in schools and over 600,000 children have demonstrated improved learning outcomes.
