Girl Child Education in India Fund
Reports show that 30% of girls from low-income families in India will never return after the closure of many schools in India, hindering all the progress made throughout the past decade. As a result, they're left vulnerable to abuse, have no access to education, and face period poverty. Asha's SV chapter is focusing on girl children through its projects invested in promoting hygiene and sanitation, promoting female rights, and providing vocational training. Some girl child-related projects we support include: Prayas Pratirodh Sansthan: this project provides education to tribal girls who have no access to education otherwise, while also acting as a bridge to enroll girls into formal schools. Door Step Schools: This project provides education to the children of slum dwellers, migrants/laborers, pavement dwellers, and other underprivileged families. As part of the curriculum, the school focuses and teaching girls about female health and hygiene which includes necessary information about the changes that occur during puberty. Fellowship Aheli Chowdhury: This project focuses on teaching girls of marginalized and minority communities employability skills such as reading and writing English, computer operations, and job readiness in order to help them secure a job and become financially independent. The project has also successfully helped place the girls they trained into excellent jobs.

Promoting E-learning for Rural Kids in Sembabule Uganda Fund
Curtin Child Learning Centre (CLICCS) is a community-based nursery & primary school located in Kibubu Nakasenyi Lwebitakuki Sembabule District that has been operating since January 2017. Like most kids in the rural areas of Uganda, the children enrolled at our school have low levels of literacy because of the inadequacy in reading materials during their early learning stages. We are aiming to resolve this using technological and digital tools in our teaching methods. We are appealing to well-wishers to support our school so we can purchase 100 E-reading tablets so the children can have access to both English and Luganda book stories (commonly-spoken native language in the Sembabule District) With the growing number of pupils , and the increasing demand to help them acquire higher literacy levels, we need to embrace digital learning; thus the need for tablets. We currently serve over 500 kids and we aim to have Tablet: Pupil ratio of 1:5(100 tablets to 500 kids.) This calls for a conducive and child-friendly E-learning environment where the children can access reading materials that match their skills and abilities, which will be further honed by our teachers. Through reading, we are hoping to improve and develop the children’s storytelling and conversational skills, their mastery of the English language, as well as build their confidence and promote teamwork among them. Help us make this happen. Together, let’s #RaiseACurtinChild.
