  1. Higher Education

    Education is the key factor in the development of the country and the people living over there. Women empowerment refers to the ability for women to enjoy their right to freedom and benefit from resources, assets, income and their own time, as well as the ability to manage risk and improve their economic status and well-being. It results in building the personality of an individual. In other words, the pathway to human-development goes through the lanes of education. Education is one of the most important means of empowering women with the knowledge, skills, and self- confidence necessary to participate fully in the development process. The education of women and girls has a tremendous impact not only on their own development but also on their families and communities.[1].

  • To increase female access to higher education in rural area.

  • To provide online education in their own village.

    In present, the condition of higher education of girls in rural is still poor. There are many issues related with higher education of girls. Due to lack of many facilities taking higher education is quite difficult for them. Hence dropout rate of girls is more as compare to boys. There are approximately 34 million adolescent girls out of school. Another shocking fact is that 2 third of the 796 million illiterates are women. According to the 2011 census, the male literacy rate is 82.14% and the female literacy rate is only 65.46% in India. All these statistics certainly revel the kind of discrimination that woman face in the today world.[11]

    1. Factors affecting girls higher education in rural India:

      1. No proper transport services, security.

      2. Lack of educational facilities.

      3. Lack of educational environment, no support.

      4. Gender inequality.

      5. Economical poor condition.

      6. Early marriage.

        Lack of reliable communication. Many of our students dont have internet access at home, or reliable cell phone service. As a result, its very difficult to give the students homework, as many of them dont have the ability to look up resources at home, post their work, or get into contact to get help.[4]

        The main problems faced by girls in rural areas is that they must be enrolled in the school in the beginning of the year but they arent able to make it till the end, either they are forced to marry or told you arent meant for education rather help their mothers with a household. Many parents think educating their sons is an asset to the family whereas educating their daughter is a waste of money because she eventually will get married and will with her husband they wont get any monetary benefit from her directly.

        Very often if the parent is willing to educate their daughter the accessibility to a college becomes a problem and sending the girl away to a town alone is considered unsafe.[2]

        Lack of proper transportation. Most villages have poor connectivity from one place to another and that is often one of the main reasons why, despite efforts by local governing bodies to build schools, often go in vain. Children, most of the time have to walk miles to reach these government funded schools and this often demotivate them to attend school on a regular basis.[3]
