Summary

Edu-GIRLS' agenda to lift girls out of poverty using its 10 Mantra approach had been jolted by COVID threatening financial ruin, leaving girls on the street and arresting learning. A $100,000 COVID Action Agenda I has distributed 1M meals, set up 600 digital learning devices and motivated teachers to worker smarter. With COVID wave 2, the fight intensifies. Vaccination drives and basic treatment facilities need to be set up to save girls, families and staff and prepare for school reopening.

Challenge

Girls' education is the most transformative intervention to reduce poverty. Yet, 100 million girls worldwide are not in school due to economic, gender, and social barriers such as: bias towards boys' education; early marriage; chores at home; and need to supplement family income. Global best practice shows that these multiple barriers can be overcome by applying an integrated set of ten interventions, our "10 Mantras", and help girls achieve their dreams. COVID disrupts. Need to fight hard, now.

Solution

10 Mantras include a free education, books / uniforms, a secure campus / safe transportation, basic health, hygiene and nutrition, technology driven education / teacher training, an English STEM curriculum, performance incentives. After graduation girls are guaranteed support for vocational training or college scholarships. Nothing stands in their way to be self earners and great mothers. COVID Action Agenda fights against financial ruin, assures quality digital learning, vaccinations and care.

Long-Term Impact

The project will sustain quality learning for 1000 girls through the pandemic and change the trajectory of their future, their communities and future generations to come. We hope to demonstrate measurable success in achieving our mission of financial independence, through Key Performance Indicators (graduation rates; results in Board exams; placement in college/vocational training and well paying jobs) and independent evaluation. This will promote efforts to replicate the model and its concepts.
