Educate Her, Make Her Independent

Summary

India is home to 4.1 million out of school girls. It is a fact that sending girls to school brings social & economic benefits to our society. Educate Girls works towards enrolling the rural, marginalized girls back in school, ensuring quality education & transforming the community mindset towards girls’ education. Your donation will be matched & supported by one of our funders to enroll girls in schools. When you support us, you help girls enter the schooling system.

Challenge

In India, girls don’t show up to classrooms due to gender-related barriers. This problem is grievous in the villages, where merely 40% girls reach grade 6. Girls in these remote & tribal villages belong to extremely socio-economically marginalized communities where their education is considered futile. They face constant threats of child marriage, early childbirth, poor maternal health, trafficking, malnutrition & abuse brought on by patriarchy, inter-generational poverty & systemic apathy.

 

Solution

Focused on high incidence villages, we work to increase the enrolment & retention of marginalized girls in grades 1-10. Our staff & community volunteers go door-to-door to identify every out-of-school girls in the area & convince parents to enroll girls, mobilize the community through meetings & support school management efforts. To ensure retention, we keep a track of the girls. We keep going back until every girl is enrolled & learning well.

 

Long-Term Impact

Educating girls is the single best investment a nation can make. Research shows that educating girls decreases child & maternal mortality, birth rates & violence against women, while massively improving family health & national income. It ensures she educates her own children, makes more informed decisions for herself & her family & enhances her chances of finding decent work. Hence opening doors to achieving many sustainable development goals.

GIFT FOR UNDERPRIVILEGED CHILDREN

Summary

Our Nourish year-end celebration always includes as special a time as possible, when our little ones graduate from creche, get to show off their songs and dances to their proud parents, get a new school uniform, share a hearty meal together, and have lots of fun with food, sweets, prezzies and games. It is also a time to cherish the team, who teach, cook, educate and take field trips, for all the positive work they do all year – everyone deserves the gift of joy – Help us make it possible!

Challenge

The problem is a ripple effect of a low income area, unemployment & poverty. Families have very little money to celebrate Christmas, because focus needs to be on covering vital costs such as food. A child graduating from pre-school is an important educational milestone, and parents cannot afford the cost of the graduation, school uniform, event costs, etc. So finding a way to enable a special Graduation & Christmas for these children at no cost to their families brings & shares joy.

Solution

This project will enable us to cover the costs. All donations go towards hiring tents and chairs and sound system, lots of food and cooking, goodie bags for the children with sweets and fruit, school uniforms for the pre-school Graduates to be able to go to Grade 1 , games and toys, jumping castles, staff food ¬†buckets, gifts, transport, photographer, school shoes, and so much more. This gives the gift of joy, allowing parents and staff to celebrate their child’s education & have FUN!

Long-Term Impact

The impact will be 45 little Children having a graduation ceremony, and being able to cover all the costs without impacting negatively on their families. These children can then go to Primary school to continue their education. This helps buy school uniforms and stationary. This provides extra food, sweets, fun and games to the other 130 children that come to the decorate village. This shares joy with over 150 households. The long term impact of a day of happiness cannot be quantified.
