HOW YOUR PURCHASE HELPS
Educate Girls works in 4,500 villages of India, covering 8,000 schools in areas where 40% of girls leave school before completing 5th grade. Their award-winning model has enrolled nearly 100,000 girls to date, and includes local young women volunteers work with a girl, her parents and her community leaders to break the social barriers keeping her from school. These volunteers also serve as mentors and tutors, helping girls stay in school.
The Leedi village community center is the unofficial “school” for village girls between the ages of 11 and 20 who’ve dropped out of school. Here, they learn math, science and language skills. The center is equipped with computers, a library and teaching staff and has an additional important goal to prepare 50 of these girls to enroll in the open schooling system and re-enter the mainstream. Bloom & Give provides 100% funding to this center.
Ashray Akruti brings hope and dignity to thousands of children with hearing disability in and around the South Indian city of Hyderabad. They operate a residential school where many of these children get specialized education. The vocational training center at the school teaches children valuable skills such as painting, sewing and cooking, which help many of them earn a livelihood when they grow up. Bloom & Give provides 100% financial support to this center.
The Samrathpura village community learning center provides alternative continuing learning to drop-outs who are not able to attend school due to practical constraints (caring for their babies, household help etc.). Girls come to this center to get basic education and training in health, gender sensitivity, religious harmony and personal cleanliness, to help them take charge of their lives with dignity. Bloom & Give provides 100% funding to this center.
The Mangala School serves 15 tribal villages in the southern state of Karnataka. Due to a severe funding shortage, the school faces a big problem of attrition of students and teachers. The school has been adopted by The Vanam Foundation, a non-profit organization that addresses the infrastructure gaps. Bloom & Give provides funding to Vanam for projects such as construction of class-rooms, procuring desks, and hiring of teachers.
