Improving education for children in Rajasthan

children adolescents

CULP works with marginalized rural and tribal communities in Rajasthan. It aims at improving the situation of girls, who traditionally marry as early as age 13. Dalyan contributes to CULP’s Pehchan Project. It seeks to reduce the number of out-of-school children (mostly girls) by creating a child friendly classroom atmosphere. The project also offers bridge-courses to mainstream children back to public schools and provides academic support to adolescent in school. Finally, life-skill education camps are conducted to teach adolescent girls between the ages of 10-19 about health, personal hygiene and democratic processes. The project shall benefit out-of-school girls and low-performing in-school girls through the academic support and through the camps. Teachers and government education officers will also profit from skill building.
