Rural school education in the world and Gender

Rural school education in the world

Children in rural areas continue to be deprived of quality education owing to factors like lack of competent and committed teachers, lack of textbooks or teaching-learning materials etc

This require creating a new platform to policy analysts, administrators, researchers and practitioners to analyse the current scenario in rural education, identify problems and come up with recommendations to improve the situation.

The programme should aim to bridge gender and social gaps in education,,working in the field of women empowerment through education, aims to promote 'skill-development' and 'entrepreurial skills' to make women self-reliant. Getting women not into imparting skills like sewing or tailoring. Instead, impart skills like plumbing, repairing and so on to break gender stereotypes and empower girls.
