Girl Child Education Program
“Educate a man, you educate one person, educate a woman, you educate a complete family.”
Lack of education denies the girl child, the knowledge and skills needed to advance their status. Education enables the child to realize her full potential, to think, question and judge independently; to be a wise decision-maker, develop civic sense and learn to respect, love his fellow human beings, and to be a good citizen.
While working with rural women MTRDS found many girl children who were unable to go to school due to the poor economic situation of the families, social norms and traditions etc. MTRDS has changed this for many poor girl children from the self help groups (SHGs) and they have been supported to continue their education.
