Here's What The Educate Girls NGO Does
There are several girls who are in school today, but there are several more who are not. For various reasons, including financial constraints and societal barriers, they are not able to go to school.
At Educate Girls NGO, our team of volunteers work with members of the local communities to bring these girls back to school, which is where they belong.
Girls like Prachi most likely end up as child brides and adolescent mothers, viewed as an economic burden, destined to a life of domesticity.
Now, meet Divya.
She is an Educate Girls' community volunteer (called 'Team Balika') who identified Prachi as an out-of-school girl during a door-to-door survey.
Divya starts to regularly meet Prachi's parents, reasoning with them and addressing their concerns.
But that's not enough.
So Divya rallies together the community, school staff and other influencers by setting up village meetings to influence the entire community's mindset towards girls' education.
Divya's efforts pay off and Prachi is in school!
Divya continues to support Prachi by helping enhance her learning outcomes and supports the School Management Committee in preparing school improvement plans - thereby reducing drop-out rates.
