On Tuesday, August 23, Educate Girls and the Rajasthani government inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). According to the Memorandum of Understanding, the nonprofit organisation promoting girls’ education will use a “Train the Trainer” strategy. By educating government instructors on how to use digital technology to gather real-time data on out-of-school children, the project seeks to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 on children’s education across the state.
Through the use of digital data gathering methods, Educate Girls has been successful in locating out-of-school children in the state’s most distant areas. In accordance with the terms of the MoU, Educate Girls will provide district-level trainers and specially chosen public school teachers with training on digital technology for identifying children who are not in school. The NGO will also aid in the project’s execution and offer data analysis and a real-time data view for course correction and planning. 33 districts in the state will see the implementation of this initiative.
This project will improve the identification of out-of-school females and make it simpler to enrol and keep them in school starting in August 2022. More females will be able to finish their basic school as a result. Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan State Project Director for Rajasthan, Dr. Mohan Lal Yadav, spoke about the government’s cooperation with the implementation partners and said, “Educate Girls deserves congratulations. I wish them the best of luck in their future endeavours and pledge complete district and state assistance.” Dr. Pallavi Singh, Associate Director of Programs at Educate Girls, provided more information on the MoU “According to Educate Girls, real-time data analysis will be available at the state level and teachers will spend less time identifying and enrolling out-of-school children thanks to this digital technology. We appreciate the Department of Education’s collaboration with Educate Girls on this project.”
