Project Title :
Training and Rehabilitation Activities for school
drop out girls (TARA)
To work for the overall development of the girl child
and women through education, health and vocational training programs.
Rachana has continued to work with school drop out girls
Non Formal Education Program (NFE). NFE classes have
been continued in
7 villages. This year some of the girls have changed
state curriculum to the National Open School Curriculum
become available in Marathi from this year. The
National Open School
provided an opportunity for the girls to choose the subject
are comfortable with. It also offers typing as
a skill, opening an
employment opportunity for girls.
About 130 girls are covered under the NFE program.
During the second
quarter, two villages covered last year, were dropped
from the NFE
program and two other villages were taken up. This
happened as most
girls in age group 10yrs-18yrs had been covered last
year and had
cleared either the MLL or the school exams.
