Educate Girls mobilizes public, private, and community resources to ensure that all girls are in school and learning well. By leveraging the government’s existing investment in schools, Educate Girls delivers measurable results to a large number of beneficiaries at an extremely low cost.
Educate Girls has scaled from a 500-school pilot in 2007, to over 26,000+ schools in over 14,000 villages across 17 educationally backward districts in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh states. Till date, we have enrolled over 5,50,000 out-of-school girls and improved learning outcomes for over 1.1 million children. Over 9 million children are the beneficiaries of improved school governance & infrastructure.
In 2019, Educate Girls was the first organization in Asia to be chosen as one of the Audacious Projects, a first-of-its-kind coalition of leading organizations and philanthropists that surfaces and funds critical projects with the potential to create global change. Our Audacious Idea is to solve almost half of India’s out-of-school girl problem by bringing up to 1.5 million out-of-school girls back to school by 2024 and benefit 15 million children cumulatively.
