Educate Girls mobilizes public, private, and community resources to ensure that all girls are in school and learning well in the elementary and the secondary education space. By leveraging the government’s existing investment in schools, Educate Girls delivers measurable results to a large number of beneficiaries at an extremely low cost and avoids duplication or parallel delivery of services. It is a well-documented fact that educating girls has a phenomenal multiplier effect on almost all development indicators. Educate Girls believes that if girls based in educationally backward districts are educated now, they will have the potential to enter the formal economy, gain employment, uplift their families and subsequently break the cycle of poverty.
We leverage existing community and Government resources to ensure that all girls are in school and learning well.
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 20,000+ villages in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar 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 children and avoids parallel delivery of services.
