An Initiative of PARIVAR VIKAS NGO, Bihar, India towards WOMEN EMPOWERMENT.

Problem Statement

As per UNESCO 774 million illiterates worldwide -- about 493 million, are women, who are unable or have difficulties reading text messages, filling out forms. 123 million people between 15 and 24 years of age who cannot read or write. Of these illiterate youth, 76 million are women and 54 million of them are based in only nine countries: India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, Democratic Republic of Congo, United Republic of Tanzania, Egypt and Burkina Faso.

We Parivar Vikas - Non-Governmental Organization, working with people in Bihar India for a nation free from poverty, illiteracy, and injustice. We work in state Bihar, has India’s lowest female literacy rate (~51%, 42% in my district of Jamui) and Asia's one of the lowest female literacy rate. Lowest female workforce participation rate (FWPR), with only 89 per 1,000 women employed in the entire state of Bihar. This number is even lower in the Jamui district. Due to continued dowry practices (despite being banned in Bihar), our girls are being emotionally abused. Rural girls in Bihar are forced into marriage at an early age, with one third of girls getting married at 14 to 18 years of age, among the highest child marriage rates in India according to a 2016 Word Bank survey. Bihar has been declared the third worst state for women in India according to Social Status Indicators and gender discrimination KPI. Targeted community's families are either landless or having own small chunks of less or infertile land. Main source of livelihood for these community people are working as agricultural labour. Their children get encouraged to drop out of school and working similarly as brick works labour / agriculture labour / as helping hand in hotel / and quite often victims of child trafficking. Youth from this communities are migrated at least 1000 miles far to work as constructions labour or industrial labour in metro cities for livelihood. The district of Jamui is also heavily affected by Naxal violence, resulting in a dangerous community for women & children. The Human Rights of these women and girls need to be protected.

PROJECT Introduction

By identifying and understanding the root causes of girl’s child rights & education at risks and failures, program staff and local partners could develop carefully targeted interventions and actions to start providing tuition for core subjects like English, Math, Science focusing syllabus for class 10th examination and computer learning at Parivar Vikas NGO village Chnadrashekhar Nagar. This village got the electricity in year 2017. This centre will be accessible to 22 near villages where no girls having the knowledge of computer. They are hardly continuing their secondary education. This project will not only for just computer education but also support community to making sure girl's continuous education. The project target villages are mostly inhabited by schedule caste/tribe and other backward community. The levels of computer literacy in these communities are zero. The communities are poor and not only fully aware on the various aspects of child right’s and protection issues but also living with multiple social illness. So, under this project the stress has given to form a better society for girls. Educating & empowering them through computer knowledge along with their mainstream education and increasing their chances of socioeconomic participation.
