CARE India aims to accomplish this goal by working with 50 million people to help them have quality health, education, livelihoods and overcome the effects of disasters.

For past two decades, CISSD has been engaging with state governments (Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Gujarat, Odisha, Haryana) and Ministry of Education (MoE) to strengthen the implementation of KGBVs in order to ensure quality education for girls from the most marginalised communities. Key focus areas have been teacher development to teach subjects from grades 6-8, implementation of a bridge curriculum for drop out girls enrolled in KGBVs, building leadership skills in adolescent girls, developing a manual on effective management of KGBVs and training of wardens, and establishing a monitoring and review mechanism including the use of safety audits in KGBVs. In the recent past, all the state governments have upgraded KGBVs to grades 8th-12th to ensure girls complete their secondary school education. State Government of Uttar Pradesh has opened 746 KGBVs so far and some of them have been upgraded by 2020-21. Therefore, girls in the age group of 11-18 years will get the opportunity to stay in KGBVs and complete their secondary school education.

CISSD will support the state education department of Uttar Pradesh to adopt/adapt the girls’ leadership model for KGBVs. For this, CISSD will provide technical assistance to the state education department through a technical support unit. Besides, CISSD will also develop5 state-of-the-art model upgraded KGBVs, and provide knowledge and tools needed to upscale and institutionalize learning across all 746 KGBVs.
