Effects of Education on Girls Families and Community
This is a study of a tangential aspect of intervention as we are not looking at any intervention directly. Here we are trying to understand the spread effect of a particular initiative, namely the girl’s education program by Nalanda. Under this initiative Nalanda has been running about 100 education centers for the girls in the age group 8 – 16 yrs, in two Blocks of Sitapur district of Uttar Pradesh, namely Mahmoodabad and Rampur Mathura since 2006 with the support of IIMPACT. IIMPACT is a national level donor agency working with the objective – To deliver quality education (up to class 5), to out of school girls from poor and disadvantaged homes in villages where literacy levels are low.
