why scholarship for girls

The female literacy rate in India is 65.46%, whereas the male literacy rate is 82.14% ( according to 2011 census) .Education plays an important role in the development of a country. Women, being the second class citizen, are still deprived of education in many parts of India. A country’s progress in entirety depends on the rate of proper education which is more than just being literate. In our country, a family prioritizes a daughter’s marriage more than her education. A loving family saves money for the girl’s marriage and teaches her to dream of a successful marriage and not a successful career, despite the capabilities and expertise she possesses. However, there are exceptions too; but their financial status restrains such talents to sprout their wings. This is where DITO seeks to intervene.

GIRLS ARE THE WORLD’S GREATEST UNTAPPED RESOURCE. INVESTMENTS IN GIRLS HAVE SIGNIFICANT ECONOMIC RETURNS. THESE RETURNS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO UPLIFT ENTIRE ECONOMIES. RECENT WORK SHOWS JUST HOW POWERFUL THE GIRL EFFECT DIVIDEND IS.
