Village Indpur Learning Centre Update

Village Indpur in Alwar District, Rajasthan is home to an IIMPACT Australia-funded Learning Centre thanks to donors like you.

 37 girls are currently studying in the Centre – girls who would not have had the opportunity to do so otherwise.

There is great progress in their learning, thanks to innovative pedagogical techniques, effective teacher training, health and hygiene training and their own spreading of awareness among their communities.

Girls also participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, as well as Diwali and other celebrations!

Teachers’ training sessions were conducted in two batches of five days duration each and 95 participants attended both sessions.

Welcome 2016!

iIMPACT Australia wishes all our supporters all the best for 2016.

As we commence another year of iIMPACT’s operation in Australia, we invite our sponsors, donors, members and ‘friends of iIMPACT’ to join us in celebrating what has been achieved with your support.

We have now completed a little over two years of operations in Australia and have funded five Learning Centres in India. We are proud to be supporting the continued expansion of iIMPACT Learning Centres who now have 45,000 girls enrolled in 1,000 Learning Centres across 11 states.

Our goal is to provide $6,000 for 3 years’ funding of each LC we open. We also encourage donors and members to visit our LC to get a first hand impression of the outcomes being achieved in closing the female literacy gap and empowering women in India.

How many such LCs do you think we could support in 2016?

Join us as a member of iIMPACT Educating the Girl Child, Inc. and lend your weight to this cause.

‘Educate a girl, change a community!’

Warm regards to you and your family from iIMPACT Australia.

IIMPACT Special Report – April 2015

Ten years since we set up our first few centers in the year 2003-2004, IIMPACT has become a driving force for literacy, education and even social reform in several Indian states. This special report focuses on several proud alumni from our pilot project in Alwar, Rajasthan.

After more than a decade of hard work, there is nothing more gratifying than seeing thousands of girls graduate from IIMPACT’s learning centers and further continue their education in the 6th grade and beyond. In areas where schools are few, and incomes are exceptionally low, the obstacles that our girls face are wide and varied. But they have demonstrated considerable strength in the face of adversity, and have worked hard for what is rightfully theirs – the opportunity.

Many of our alumni in secondary schools and colleges dream of becoming teachers, lawyers, police officers, members of the local panchayat and are pursuing courses in nursing, food preservation and computers. They aspire to give back to the society, and to their parents, who made sacrifices for them and were instrumental in their success.

Today, they are confident, and have a progressive vision. A vision for a good life and a bright future.

All the above validates – ‘’Educate a girl and you benefit generations to follow.’’

We thank you for your valuable support. With the support of our well-wishers we have been able to reach out to more and more out-of school girls in over 1000 Learning Centres in 11 states of India.
