About Pratham’s Girls and Women Program
Pratham’s research and experience shows that barriers, such as lack of confidence in their own abilities, poor or non-existent foundational and applied skills, coupled with a general lack of information about employment and livelihood pathways, about life events and opportunities, influence girls’ and women’s willingness and abilities to seek and access education and employment opportunities. This situation is rooted in and perpetuated by a set of social norms and expectations that frame what is thought of as appropriate behaviours and roles for girls and women. Pratham’s flagship program Second Chance is a year-long intervention which aims to help dropouts, especially girls and women, restart their education and complete secondary schooling. The program provided academic support to learners to help them prepare and appear for Grade 10 examination through Open Schooling Institutions or State Education Boards; learners also get exposure to life skills and similar co-scholastic modules which can enhance their skillset and help in their personal and professional journey. Started in 2011, the program is operational across 12 States in India and has reached more than 40,000 girls and women. The program is headed by a core team which is based across Ahmedabad, Delhi and Mumbai.
Remote Second Chance (RSCP), an initiative under the Second Chance program, aims to use technology and its advantages to reach out to more interested learners remotely to help them prepare for the board exam. It started in 2019 and is at the stage of scaling up.
