Support for Tribal Girl Education Program

The female literacy rate in rural India is about 58% (2011 census) which is well below the literacy rate of 75%. Non-availability of a school within walking distance of the girls, particularly in backward areas and the unwillingness of many parents to send their daughter to schools due to lack of money contribute a lot towards forcing a girl to be uneducated and being denied the most basic amenity of life – education.

To provide basic education for tribal girls, a girl’s hostel is run by Dimbhe fishery co-operative in Basti Grih, Ghodegaon near Pune, which bears the cost of girl’s education and provides basic amenities, food and lodging facilities to these girls. These girls belong to the backward Katkari tribal coummunity and their parents cannot afford to pay for their education, so they send their girls to this hostel which provides them lifeskill education. The Dimbhe fishery co-operative themselves is comprised of fish farmers who run the hostel through donation as they themselves cannot afford to pay the whole expenses for running the hostel.

An annual expense of ₹ 2.95 lakh will be required towards food, textbooks and stationary, school uniforms/clothes, school equipments and other housekeeping items which the Dimbhe co-operative cannot raise by themselves. The annual hostel expenses are broken down in following way:
Food - ₹210000
Text Books & Stationary - ₹45000
School Uniform/Bags - ₹25000
School Equipments & Other Housekeeping Items - ₹15000
Total - ₹2,95,000

The last date for receiving the funds is 15th July 2018. The hostel will start its operations from 15th June onwards and with the help of donations the Dimbhe co-operative will cover the hostel expenses. The donation raised from this campaign will be handed over to Basti Griha.
