How Corporates can make an Impact!

4

 

IIMPACT receives 90% of our funding support from corporate sponsors. We can meet with corporates and charitable foundations to present tailored proposals that align with your values and goals for social change.

VISION: Create Enabling Conditions for Girls’ Education.

MISSION: Involve every ‘out of school’ girl in the 6-14 age group in meaningful education through specially modeled IIMPACT Learning Centres that cater exclusively to the girl child.

 


OBJECTIVES:

  1. To identify ‘out of school’ girls between ages 6-14 years through micro-surveys in 2-3 districts in each state with female literacy below 25%.
  2. To involve all the identified girls in alternative Learning Centers opened at strategic locations to enable access to schooling with 30 girls per LC.
  3. To educate the girls in Learning Centers so that they complete their education till class V in the shortest time.
  4. To sensitize parents and community towards the girl child education through participation in village education committees/parent committees.
  5. To work towards increased formal school enrolments for girls.

 

Salient Features

 

IIMPACT’s  work spans one and a half decades, 11 states and thousands of girls each year. Partner with us, thus giving us the opportunity to reach out to many more.

The IIMPACT model ensures that there is flexibility in terms of norms of enrolment, pace of teaching, teaching methodology, school time-table etc. that suits every out of school girl and no eligible girl is left out of the program in the project area/village.

The IIMPACT focus is that the education has requisite quality and is child-centred and gender-sensitive. It is based on a curriculum that is relevant to the needs and reality of learners, and relies on trained teachers equipped with appropriate learning materials. School is held in a child-friendly environment – one that is safe, clean and conducive to learning and play. Schools are expected to not just impart education in its narrow sense but, more broadly, to mould children’s attitudes. All effort are made that egalitarian values, compassion, and tolerance, concern towards others, respect for cultural diversity, gender sensitivity and health education are integrated in the curriculum.

At IIMPACT your organisation can support the primary education for girls studying in class 1 – 5.
