In general, good scores in high school determine how a career will take shape. Our goal is to provide all the resources to ensure that our female participants all appear in examinations well prepared and ready to excel. While preparing for examinations we also help them discover, enhance their skills and develop their hobbies. We provide a day health camp by a female physician who teaches about female health and hygiene topics and answers health related questions.
This program runs across the academic session from May through February. It may be renewed at the same location based on the academic performance. In 2019 we expanded this program at following locations: Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Chhattisgarh and two in Nepal libraries. All have successfully completed the sessions..
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 much worse. Female children are more likely to continue their primary education, but 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 one center hosts around 55 girls from all over Gujarat’s remote villages from the age 8-18 who were deprived of their fundamental rights of education. Also, due to ultra-poverty, their parents could not afford to feed them properly. These selected girls are living in this center without bearing any cost by themselves or from their families. Future Girlz was initiated in 2018 as a pilot project at this center, focusing primarily on advancing female education and to provide a path forward to their careers and goals.
