Rationale for educating girls
There is ample evidence worldwide that improvements in girls’ education benefits the status of the family and empowers women in society. CSP is dedicated to improve the quality of education for girls and to remove obstacles that hamper active participation. The gender gap is widest in remote villages. In Chirran levels of literacy, school enrolment, school dropouts, and opportunities for vocational training is very poor. Although the people of Chirran are not against girls’ education, culturally they don’t allow their girls to attend school with boys.
This issue has been resolved by CSP by starting the Tine Girls Model School where the girls can be educated without these issues.
