In rural India, families live with modest means, and girl’s education is never a priority. Marriage is. And since marriage brings the burden of domestic work and rearing a family, several girls are forced to drop out of school.
Facing abject poverty parents often resort to sending their girls to work. Ending their hopes of finishing school. This makes them bound to labour, with no hope of ever being independent.
Some families that can afford to send their children to school favour their sons over daughters, causing them to stay at home while their brothers attend school.
Lack of separate toilets for boys and girls is one of the leading causes for girls to drop out. The discomfort of sharing a toilet with their fellow classmates and teachers often compels them to give up on school altogether.
For many girls, their reason for dropping out is simple. The village school is just too far. Parents, worried for their safety, prefer to have them stay at home than risk travelling thedistance alone.
When a girl is able to go to school, she sets off a cycle of positive change. An educated girl stays away from early marriage, avoids exploitation at work and becomes strong and independent. As she grows, she is able to make better choices for herself. This transforms her present life, gives her a secure future and helps her to look out for her family too. Educated girls grow up to be empowered women and can influence the communities they live in, for good.
