ABOUT EDUCATE GIRLS
Educate Girls empowers communities to facilitate girls’ education in rural India and help them take a stand against gender inequality.
Working directly with government schools, parents and village leaders, and with the help of over 11,000 community volunteers (called Team Balika), we have helped ensure over 90% enrollment and higher attendance for girls as well as enhanced learning outcomes for all children.
Established in 2007, Educate Girls has grown from a 500-school pilot project in Rajasthan to now serving over 21,000 schools in some of India’s most educationally backward regions. Since inception, we have enrolled 2,00,000 girls, across 12,000+ villages in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh and we have reached 4.9 million beneficiaries overall.
We aim to achieve behavioural, social and economic transformation for all girls towards an India where all children have equal opportunities to access quality education.
Leveraging existing community and government resources to ensure that all girls are in school and learning well.
Our goal is to improve access and quality of education for around 2.5 Million Children annually by 2018.
