India: Nanhi Kali
Nanhi Kali, under the leadership of their Executive Director Sheetal Mehta in India, is dedicated to keeping underprivileged girls in school to complete their education and become literate and active participants in their communities. More often than not young Indian girls will drop out of school or be forced by their parents to quit and work to help support the family.
Nearly 40% of underprivileged girls drop out of primary school and more than 70% drop out of secondary school. Project Nanhi Kali works to keep India’s young girls in school by providing academic and direct material support in the form of uniforms, clothes, notebooks and other educational materials.
Project Nanhi Kali continues to be very successful in their mission. Fewer than 10% of young girls involved with Project Nanhi Kali drop out of school which means that over 90% continue on with their education and become thriving pillars in their communities. Because Project Nanhi Kali has had such amazing results they have ambitions to more than double the number of young girls they hel000 young girls become educated and Nanhi Kali plans to expand its program to support 100,000 young girls by the end of this year. They cannot achieve this goal without our help.
