Quality education unlocks a world of possibility. But in rural Jharkhand, girls are kept from studying because they are expected to spend their time with household chores and field work. For most girls, their script has already been written: they will marry as teenagers, move to their husband’s house, and become wives and mothers.
Inside simple concrete classrooms, Yuwa girls use technology to discover the wonders of language, math, history, and science–and shatter the stereotypes assigned to their gender.
Yuwa School enables each girl to reach her full academic and personal potential through a low student-teacher ratio (9:1), child-centered pedagogy, and emphasis on critical and creative learning. In the Indian state ranked worst for female illiteracy, Yuwa girls defy the odds–and reclaim their own futures.
Through financial sponsorship, you can give girls a space of their own, enabling them to explore their potential and bring their dreams within reach. With your support, the next generation of female change-makers will find their voices.
