Do the math: Girls + Education
Educating Girls in Rural India
IIMPACT provides educational opportunity to girls, from socially and economically disadvantaged communities of India, who traditionally have no acesss to schooling. Our aim is to break the cycle of illiteracy that girls from such communities are mired in. This is done through local community-based Learning Centers, where they get meaningful and stimulating education up to Year 5 and are guided to their entry in to mainstream education. We are supported by corporations, trusts and individuals who want to make a difference.
LLA's goal is to empower American students to learn and act globally: to become international citizens through education and relationship building with students in developing countries and to harness their potential to improve the lives of the world's most vulnerable children. LLA aims to break the cycle of poverty by providing access to education, clean water, and health services, and unleashing their power to succeed.
