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.
