Educate Girls

EAC and Educate Girls have partnered to provide quality basic education to 190,000 out of school children in India. Our collaboration comprises of two five-year projects, seeking to enrol 64,000 and 126,000 OOSC (with a particular focus on girl students) respectively in Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. Educate Girls works to systematically challenge structural, cultural and socio-economic barriers through a combination of community mobilization strategies and child-centered learning and teaching techniques.

Educate Girls

Educate Girls is a non-governmental organization that tackles the issues at the root of gender inequality in India’s education system. Educate Girls was registered as an NGO in 2007. In 2008, it won government approval to start a pilot program to enhance girls’ attendance and retention in 500 schools in Rajasthan’s Pali district. The organization currently serves approximately 4,500 schools in the Pali and Jalore districts.  By 2016, the organization aims to improve access and quality of education for 2.6 million children in all 9 of the 26 districts with the worst gender indicators in India.

Educate Girls runs a comprehensive model of reforms for government schools through community ownership, with the aim to secure 100 per cent enrollment, higher attendance and improved learning outcomes for all girls. The organization engages girl students, teachers, schools, communities and government officials within existing frameworks to create a sustainable, scalable and holistic platform in each village.

EAC works with Educate Girls to support the development of schools in Jalore, Sirohi, Ajmer, Tonk and Sawai Madhopur districts. The partnership seeks to enroll and retaining 64,000 out of school girls over a six year period.
