Organization Background

Established in 2007, Educate Girls (a project of 'Foundation to Educate Girls Globally') is holistically tackling issues

at the root cause of gender inequality in India's education system that has helped to ensure over 90% enrolment

and higher attendance as well as improved school infrastructure, quality of education and learning outcomes for

all girls.

Our comprehensive model helps communities assess their school situation, initiate action plans and empowers

them to sustain positive results at the lowest cost. Educate Girls believes that if girls in the most backward gender

gap districts are educated now, they will have the potential to enter the formal economy, gain employment and lift

their families out of poverty. By leveraging the government's existing investment in schools, Educate Girls delivers

measurable results to a large number of beneficiaries and avoids duplication or parallel delivery of services.

Because of the sustainability and scalability of the model, Educate Girls has grown from a 500-school pilot project

in the Pali district of Rajasthan to now serving thousands of schools, reaching millions of children in some of India's

most remote areas. The non-governmental organization has a management and outreach office in Mumbai and

operations in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh and is committed to launching interventions in multiple new

geographies across India over the coming years.
