Note on NPEGEL Programme – implemented by Tharuni in Warangal District.
The Two word Mantra – “educate girls”. (The single most important thing that can be done to improve the world is perhaps this – educate girls – Shashi Tharoor, UN official).
“No other policy is as likely to raise economic productivity, lower infant and maternal mortality, improve nutrition, promote health, including the prevention of HIV/AIDS, and increase the chances of education for the next generation. Let us invest in women and girls” – Kofi Annan, U.N.Secretary-Genaral.>
Scholarly studies and research projects have established that if you educate a boy, you educate a person, but if you educate a girl, you educate a family and thus benefit the entire community. A girl who has had more than six years of education is better equipped to seek and use medical and health advice, to immunize her children, to be aware of sanitary practices from boiling water to the importance of washing hands.
NPEGEL aims at providing education to under privileged / disadvantaged girls from class I to VIII. It is an attempt to provide an opportunity for improving human capabilities to all children including the girl child, through provision of community owned quality Education in a mission mode.
Tharuni has been assigned the task of implementation of NPEGEL programme in Ten Mandals of Warangal district by establishing 61 Cluster Schools catering for 200 villages.
NPEGEL Project Survey in 400 villages benefited 560 Dropout girl children. They were rescued from child labour and were admitted into schools.
About 50 Child Rights Forums/Girl Child Rights Forums were formed and 28 BalikaSanghams involving the Girl students were set up in the schools.
