Educate Girls (EG) works to improve the quality of girls’ education in rural Rajasthan to increase social and economic prospects for poor families and communities. Educate Girls ensures that more girls can be educated on a larger scale and at a lower cost by mobilising communities to improve the quality of girls’ education and the infrastructure of government schools.
Educate Girls spends three years in every district in Rajasthan to promote and support girls’ education through:
Educate Girls is currently implementing its model in 2,342 government schools in the Pali District and plans to start work in 50% of schools in the Jalore District. Education for girls is weakest in these two districts of Rajasthan.
The British Asian Trust is supporting Educate Girls to scale up and increase its outreach across Rajasthan enabling more girls to be enrolled and educated. With help from The Queen’s Silver Jubilee Trust, we are supporting Girls’ Councils (Bal Sabhas) promoting leadership skills.
