International Day of the Girl – 11th October

Give girls a second chance to put education first!

At Pratham, we believe that the education of girls and women is crucial for social and economic upliftment, levels of confidence and further development of a fast-growing economy like that of India.

Pratham Open School started in 2011 to give young women the chance to complete their Secondary School education and acquire the necessary skills for employment. It is a 15-month programme that targets young girls and women between the ages of 16-25 who have left school earlier than the recommended age and helps them pass their Secondary School Examination.

Let’s celebrate the economic and social empowerment of girls and women on this special day and extend our support to the Second Chance programme.

Happy International Day of the Girl!
