How Various Businesses Are Helping In Improving Girls’ Education in India

Education plays a vital role in forming an individual’s life. It not only imparts knowledge but also empowers the citizen of this nation to know about their rights, eradicate poverty and helps in boosting the economic growth of the country.

India is a developing country and education of both men & women is essential for its growth, but the rate of women’s literacy in India is very low. The world average female literacy rate is 79.7%, while in India the average rate is 65.46%. The government of India has taken different initiatives for improvement in girls’ education.

For improving the girls’ education, many businesses have taken different initiatives. Some of them have signed a pact with various organisations and the government. Here are some of them listed:

MG Motor India To Adopt 30 Learning Centres

Carmaker MG (Morris Garages) Motor India recently signed an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with IIMPACT, an NGO engaged in providing quality education to the girl child through its learning centres in remote villages across the country.

Through the programme, MG Motor India plans to impart education with subject-wise classes up to 5th standard for a period of 5 years. The programme will endeavour to provide access to quality education to at least 1,000 girl children in 2019.

Prince Charles Pacts with British Telecom

Prince Charles has recently signed a pact with British Telecom (BT) to launch a three-year programme to use digital technology to help improve education and life skills for adolescent girls in India.
Under this partnership, British Telecom, which is one of the UK's leading telecom companies, will explore the different ways to use technology as a means break down social barriers and aims to enhance employability, health choices and autonomy for the target group of largely young girls in India.

Preparing for future

Technology has made its way into almost every industry. The education industry has witnessed a remarkable development with the onset of technology. It has become essential for every student to have the skill to work with modern technologies in order to sustain in today’s highly competitive employment market.

This pact not only aims to educate a girl child but also prepare them for the future. It will use digital media and tech to sensitise communities and girls about gender roles and health and hygiene services, and train teachers and frontline health workers to improve services for girls.

IT for Change will work with girls in schools through workshops and classroom-based training in rights-based perspectives on gender equality, sexual and reproductive health, and digital literacy. This will include creating digital labs in schools to train girls as well as teachers, and video clubs that enable girls to create digital learning materials that will be used for peer learning among other girls.
