Planned Goals and Milestones
IGATE is working through community based and government-supported models to reach the poorest individuals within the country. First, IGATE selected some of the poorest districts and those with the worst educational indicators. Second, IGATE is working with locally based models of intervention to try and reach those with the most need through Village, Savings and Lending (VSL), Mothers Groups, partnership with Government representatives and religious bodies who serve the most marginalized.
The program aims to reach 49,874 school girls in around 450 schools, across 3 provinces in 8 districts. The program's impact includes its influence on 4,500 School Development Committee members, 12,000 mothers of girls who participate in a mothers' group, and 2,000 traditional religious leaders whose involvement will allow for culturally and religiously appropriate approaches. IGATE estimates the number of direct beneficiaries to be 70,000 in the first 3 operating years.
