NEW DELHI, INDIA — Going to School Fund (GTS) is a non-governmental organization that works with schools across India to teach entrepreneurial skills to the poorest and most marginalized children. GTS will use skills-driven stories to teach a skills curriculum to students in grades 8 and 9 in the state of Bihar with the aim of preparing students for livelihood opportunities, and promoting transition to and retention in secondary school. It is expected that about half the students targeted for the implementation will be girls; there will be a special effort to orient teachers to address the needs of female students. GTS will partner with a specialized agency to implement a rigorous evaluation of the model.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Going to School Fund $202,000 between 2003 and 2014.
