What We Do
Challenging patriarchy & poverty
Educate Girls promotes and protects the right of every girl to gain a quality education through challenging patriarchy, enrolling girls into school and providing support to children to improve their learning outcomes.
How we do it
Educate Girls designs and executes programs in areas of highest need for girls’ education. We do this via local, credible partners and leaders in the areas of community mobilization, curriculum development, pedagogy, behavior change and data analytics.
Our vision is that every girl is in school,
learning & completes at least 12 years of education.
We find out-of-school girls, bring them into school and ensure that they stay and learn. Using smart data and technology with high-touch community engagement and partnerships with state ministries, we create a sustainable and systemic solution in the hope that one day every girl will be in school and learning.
Educate Girls is a registered public charity in the US, founded in December 2014 by Safeena Husain. It has provided funds for work in India to enroll girls into government schools, improved learning outcomes for boys and girls in rural village schools and built awareness of the crisis in girls’ education.
In partnership, Educate Girls has ensured that over 1 million girls have been enrolled into school and it has also improved learning outcomes for over a million children.
