Educating Young Girls
Girls living in urban slum communities often have few rights and are barred from securing quality education. According to UNICEF, 129 million girls around the world are out of school where 32 million are primary school age. Due to that, they lack the access to self development tools and resources.
Ek Tara Addresses Gender Inequality
Ek Tara aims to educate, engage, and empower girls from marginalized communities. Through giving them access to high-quality learning resources, Ek Tara works to transform the lives of girls living in urban slum communities in Kolkata (India). Ek Tara’s education and child development programs offer literacy and numeracy classes as well as co-curricular activities.
