Summary

Girls' dreams of working their way out of poverty through quality education are being shattered by the pandemic. Our COVID ACTION AGENDA has beaten off the worst impacts of the pandemic. Now with syllabus linked digital learning, continuous assessment of learning levels and customized self learning, we seek to excellence for our girls. Learning packages like DIKSHA, PEHLA, ASSET, MindSPARK help take girls to the frontier. For $50,000, let us bring the digital revolution to 500 more girls.

Challenge

Simple access to digital devices - even if it were organized - is not enough to restore learning lost during the lock down of the pandemic. To be successful, a number of actions are needed: 1. Ensure connectivity and data access in the slums; 2. Protect against loss of device to male family members; 3. Train the teachers. 4. Undertake continuous learning assessments; 5. Design customized programs for girls falling behind grade; and 6. Challenge those girls who are ahead.

Solution

This project is built on a pilot launched October to 2020 to screen all learning packages available in the market and then to put them to work in tandem for about 600 girls in Jaipur. The selections were rigorously done by the Principal and teachers. Recently a new Director for Digital Learning has been added to the staff. The project received coverage in the national media as one serious effort to bridge the digital divide. Growth will be in Jaipur as well at a new school in Firozabad.

Long-Term Impact

Immediately, the lost learning in the year of the pandemic will be restored. Girls will not be on the street but learning and dreaming again of pulling out of poverty through quality education. The long term impact of educating girls for the family, society and the planet is beyond doubt: the World Bank recently estimated that the cost to society of not educating our girls to high school is $30 Trillion.
