Throughout India, gender disparity remains a significant barrier to education. Close to 3 million girls across the country are out of school as a result.
Educate Girls is holistically tackling issues at the root cause of gender inequality in India’s education system. Through a network of thousands of community volunteers they advocate for girls’ education in their villages and enrol girls into school. In order then to increase retention and learning outcomes, Educate Girls trains school teachers in learning and teaching techniques, provides remedial curriculum to the pupils and assists the schools to make community-led improvement plans.
