Educate Girls empowers communities to facilitate girls’ education in rural India and helps them take a stand against gender inequality. Educate Girls believes that if girls in educationally backward districts are educated, they will have the potential to enter the formal economy, gain employment and lift their families out of poverty.
Working in partnership with the Government, the community, and with the help of 12,000+ community volunteers (called Team Balika), Educate Girls has helped ensure higher enrolment and attendance for girls as well as improved learning outcomes for all children.
Established in 2007, Educate Girls has grown from a 500-school pilot project in Rajasthan to now serving over 25,000 schools spread across 16 districts in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.
They aim to achieve behavioural, social and economic transformation for all girls towards an India where all children have equal opportunities to access quality education.
They leverage existing community and Government resources to ensure that all girls are in school and learning well.
Their goal is to improve access and quality of education for around 16 million children cumulatively by 2024.See more
