Girls' Secondary Education in Developing Countries
NEW YORK, — Building on previous work done at the primary level, the American India Foundation Trust will expand its demand-generation and support model to focus on secondary schooling. Placing a special emphasis on reaching girls, the LAMP Pathways (LP) project aims to address school dropout, cultural barriers, and secondary school access for children of migrant families from the highly marginalized, migration-prone Kutch district in Gujarat. By increasing demand for secondary education among migrant communities and enabling more students, especially girls, to transition from primary to secondary school the project aims to provide families and children with life and employment options that are not determined by distress migration.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded American India Foundation $200,000 between 2003 and 2014.
