Summary

In general, good score in Highschool usually determines how career will shape. Our goal is to provide all the resources to ensure they all appear in examination well prepared and excel. While preparing for examination we also help them discover , enhance their skills and hobbies. We provide a day health camp by a female physician, who teaches about female health and hygiene topics, and answer health related questions.

This program runs across academic session from May through February. And it may get renewed at same location based on the academic performance.  In 2019 we expanded this program at following locations: Madhya Pradesh, Uttarpradesh, Assam, Chattishghar and two in Nepal Libraries, and have  successfully completed the sessions.

Why do we need it ?

The 2011 census showed the male literacy rate to be 82.14% while for females it lags at 65.46%. The situation in rural areas and with the underprivileged community is more gruesome in the state. The girl children are more likely to continue their primary education; however, at the secondary level of education, girls tend to drop out at a higher rate  than boys. There are innumerable factors associated with this unfortunate situation. 

In Rajkot city of Gujarat there is a center hosts around 55 girls from all over Gujarat’s remote villages from the age 8 -18. These girls were deprived of their fundamental rights of education, and due to ultra-poverty, their parents couldn’t afford to feed them properly. These selected girls are living in this center without bearing any cost by themselves or from their family. The project ‘Future Girlz’ was initiated in 2018 as a pilot project at this center, Mainly focusing on excelling Girl’s education and to provide a path forward to their career and goal.
