Key success indicators : i.People in 50 rural communities will become more aware on the need to re-enroll girls into schools. ii.Management structures of 50 rural schools will be enhanced to effectively handle issues of girl child education. iii.Comprehensive data on number of girls not attending school gathered in 50 villages gathered. iv.500 out-of-school girls / dropped out girls will be supported to enroll & re-enrol into schools in 50 communities.
Problem statement : “When you educate a man, you educate an individual and when you educate a woman, you educate an entire family.” This declaration is multi-faceted an educated woman has the self-confidence, skills as well as intelligence to understand the need to be a better daughter, sister, wife and mother and make a progressive family. Education is the only tool with which a girl or a woman can empower herself and eventually her family. India holds a strong determination in educating all children, especially the girl child. By declaring education as a fundamental right, India ensures constitutional provisions for providing free and compulsory education to all the children between 6 to 14 years of age. This provision is widely known as the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan.”
Proposed solution : Even after declaring education as a fundamental right there are numerous hurdles that prohibit a girl child from actually getting education. The biggest hurdle is the prejudices that families have about girls like girls are slow learners they are not rational they are to be confined inside the domestic household and why bother about educating them. Only a handful of people have actually realized the importance of educating a girl. Though not a direct cause the infamous dowry system is also another barrier in girl child education. Families often think of a girl as a burden and often want to save the money for their dowry rather than spending it on her education. Most of the girl children dropped out after fifth & eighth standard due to unavailability of higher standard within village school and unavailability of regular timely transportation facilities to reach the nearby villages.
