Why we invest

India has a public mandate to provide schools and primary education for all children, yet over 3.7 million eligible girls remain at home. Educate Girls mobilizes communities – parents, village leaders, schools, community volunteers – to enroll girls, improve school infrastructure (toilets, clean water, fencing) and boost learning outcomes. Since 2007, they have enrolled and retained 80,000 out-of-school girls in 8,000 schools across Rajasthan at a cost of less than $300 per school per year. Their model works and has great potential to scale big through government, reaching millions of girls.
