Story

Tribal girls in Manipur do not have the opportunities to educate themselves, in spite of education being fundamental rights in the constitution of India. Education is most vital key to ending extreme poverty and it is dream for millions of children’s in India. But for the tribal girls, it is the more than that and rate of literacy is very low and less than 2% in some areas. Although government does provide some schools for tribal community in the hilly areas Manipur but they are mostly of poor quality.

For many tribal children, parents discourage girl children to education and they feel that schooling is often a waste of time and money. Some of the girls had to leave schools or due to death of their parents, failure in the examination, engaged in domestic works, sickness of parents, irregular attendance, having many brothers and sisters. When the father of a family expired, the son or daughter attending school was to leave school, but when a mother died, generally the daughter was to dropout for looking after the household works of the family. Normally, if there were many children, the eldest daughter had to look after the younger ones to make their parents free to work. Thus irregular attendance led them to dropouts.
