Girl Child Education Initiative
 

 

The Mamta - Girl Child Learning Centers "Hamari Beti Shiksha Kendra" - (supported by the TITAN Kanya - Girl Child Education Initiative and MPS Limited) are currently operational in 108 villages of two states Uttarakhand and Himachal at District Dehradun and Sirmour respectively. The focus of the Girl Child Learning Centres program is to create a nurturing and supportive environment for out of school girl children between the ages of 6-14 years and to sufficiently educate them and help them enrol in mainstream schools.

The project is a partnership between three organisations. The implementing partners are Mamta Samajik Sanstha, Dehradun and CSR. The project is funded by the CSR wing of TITAN Industries Ltd. TITAN Kanya – Girl Child Education Initiative. Besides this, we are working for their all round development like health care, nutrition support, skill development, confidence building etc using right based approach.

The following activities have been conducted under the program in the Half-yearly period of April – September, 2012.

 

 

I. Survey and Identification of project villages

 

45 villages of Vikasnagar and Sahaspur blocks were visited and surveyed to identify girls between the ages of 6-14 years who were primary school dropouts or those who had never been to school.

Of these 45 villages, 30 were selected on the basis of meeting the criteria of having a minimum of 30 such slow learner girls in a particular village.

 

Mamta Staff then verified these surveys and met with the girls enrolled in the learning centres in each of these 30 villages.

II. Selection of Teachers and finalisation of centre locations

Once the 30 villages with slow learner girls were identified and verified, teachers for these centres were found. These teachers were local girls and women living in and around Vikasnagar and Sahaspur block.

A key feature of the project is that the physical location of the learning centre must be contributed by the village community themselves. This helps build among the community the need to prioritize girl child education.
