Educate Girls

London UK, and Mumbai, India

http://www.educategirls.ngo

Established in 2007, Educate Girls is a non-profit that focusses on mobilising communities for girls’ education in India’s rural and educationally backward areas. 

Strongly aligned with the ‘Right to Education Act’ or the ‘Samagra Siksha’, Educate Girls is committed to the Government’s vision to improve access to primary education for children, especially young girls. Educate Girls currently operates successfully in over 13,000 villages in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. 

By leveraging the government’s existing investment in schools and by engaging with a huge base of community volunteers, Educate Girls helps to identify, enrol and retain out-of-school girls and to improve foundational skills in literacy and numeracy for all children (both girls and boys). This helps deliver measurable results to a large number of beneficiaries and avoids duplication or parallel delivery of services.

Educate Girls was the service provider in the first multi-year DIB and the first event impact bond in school education. We were instrumental in bringing together the partners, very involved in the design process and completed deliver of the 3-year contract, outperforming our targets.
