Bihar and RajasthanSECTORS
Outline India conducted a baseline, midline and endline study to understand levels of knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours pertaining to the education of the girl child in rural India.
As the India partner for the ‘Empowering Next Generations to Advance Girls' Education’ (ENGAGE) project, surveys were conducted in 500 households across Rajasthan and Bihar, with a parent-child pair from each household. The study measured the effectiveness of ENGAGE in mobilizing and engaging school‐aged girls, boys, men and women to address the barriers and social norms preventing access to quality education in India.
The project’s three key objectives included:
a) Increase public attention, awareness, engagement and action around the importance of equitable, quality education for all and the need to eliminate gender disparity in education.
b) Mobilize and engage men, women, and school-aged youth through grassroots community initiatives to take action to address barriers and social norms impeding access to quality education for girls.
c) Motivate leaders, key stakeholders and other decision-makers to take concrete, positive action to eliminate barriers to girls’ education.
