Challenge3 million girls across India are out of school, and the female literacy rate is only 61%. In Rajasthan, only 18.5% children in Grade 3 can read words, 14.6 % of them can do a subtraction and only 39.3% children in Class 5 can read a grade 2 text. Educate Girls (EG) works towards holistically tackling issues at the root of gender inequality in India's educational system.
SolutionIn order to improve learning levels (numeracy and literacy), curriculum is implemented in schools for children in grade 3, 4 and 5. The curriculum is implemented with the use of specially designed kits called Gyan ka Pitara (GKP). The learning tools focus on building micro-competencies in English, Hindi and Math. Each kits contains over 250 worksheets/child, ensuring no child is left behind. While designing the kits, the needs of the most marginalized children have been taken into account.
