Girls' Secondary Education in Developing Countries
NEW YORK, NEW YORK — Lend-A-Hand India (LAHI), an NGO that focuses on in-school jobs-skills training, will bring an experiential, in-school model for teaching employer-relevant skills to secondary schools in Gujarat, with a special focus on girls. Taking the needs of rural populations into consideration, the LAHI curriculum introduces students to theory and practice on subjects such as basic engineering, energy, environment, agriculture, animal husbandry, and home and health science, with the goal of preparing them for the job market or for further training once they leave secondary school.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Lend A Hand India $255,000 between 1978 and 2016.
