EEI has built a strong relationship with an NGO in the Barmer District of Rajasthan, India. Lok Kalyan Sansthan has been a leading organization that has focused on social, economical, and political empowerment of marginalized communities in some of the most remote areas of Rajasthan. Together we are united to support and empower young girls!
Brave New Girl
EEI has developed "Brave New Girl", a leadership and life-skills based curriculum for teen girls to build their awareness of violence against women and girls worldwide and within their community, the risks of early marriage, their rights as women in India, and basic gender equality advocacy skills. Through this program we will also support tuition and education assistance for girls who have dropped out of school or who are at risk of dropping out due to financial difficulties.
Reproductive & Sexual Health Program
Reproductive and sexual health is a major missing piece from girls education around the world. Our goal is to educate adolescent girls about their bodies and health so that they have improved understanding of maternal health, child-bearing, and sexually transmitted diseases. This project is currently underway.
