About EAA

Opening up a world of education

Children love to learn. If they are denied access to knowledge, we also deny them the opportunity to change their lives for the better.


Expansion of Educate Girls Programme

Calendar icon
The second EAC and Educate Girls (EG) project aims to support 126,000 out of school children (OOSC) in four states (Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar) with a particular focus on remote, rural tribal areas. In these areas EG will reach the most marginalized children in India who are systematically denied the advantages of autonomy, mobility, and economic opportunity.

Through strong community mobilization activities, public, private, and community resources are leveraged to improve access to education and school quality for girls. Key areas of strategy include: enrolment and retention of OOSC; improvement in teaching quality; increasing involvement and capacity of communities in school management; and enhancing the motivation and self-esteem of girls.

Monitoring and evaluation will provide regular feedback to allow changes in service delivery and implementation strategy to achieve the best possible results.  A stand-alone mobile tracking system has been developed to gather and monitor information on EG team activities along with registering village and school data. A communications strategy that is designed to engage community members at the village level in girls’ education will be employed.

Sustainability is strengthened through this model, which builds the capacity of volunteer community school committees to enable them to take over management of OOSC enrolment, help ensure retention, and run activity-based learning programs. The model is also aligned with India’s National Education Policy/Right to Education Act that requires free and compulsory education. Educate Girls is a key partner with the government of Rajasthan.

*EAC would like to thank the Bharti Foundation for its generous co-financing contribution to this project.
