Teradata, a data analytics and marketing application company, has partnered with ‘Project Nanhi Kali’ to support education initiatives for young girls in Mumbai, Pune and Hyderabad.
This partnership is done with the view to educate young girls. Education is an area that offers some of the clearest examples of discrimination women suffer. According to UNICEF, there are twice as many girls as boys among children not attending school. Same is the ratio in adult men and women. Offering girls basic education is one sure way of giving them greater power — enabling them to make genuine choices over the kinds of lives they wish to lead. As a result of this partnership, ‘700 Nanhi Kalis’ will receive educational support. An educated woman has the skills, information and self-confidence that she needs to be a better parent, worker and citizen.
The programme selected girls based on multiple criteria including enrollment in government schools, family income, parents’ educational background, social background and the child’s aptitude. The partnership will ensure that a comprehensive sponsorship is created to take care of a range of educational requirements, providing not only academic support that helps them improve their learning levels but also material support. This includes uniforms and other clothing, as well as school supplies.
