6 Learning Centres Funded!

IIMPACT Australia is funding six Learning Centres on an ongoing basis to support 195 girls through their primary school education. These centres are:

  1. Mamudpur, South 24 Paragnas (West Bengal)
  2. Indpur, Alwar (Rajasthan)
  3. Lendharjori, Raigarh (Chhatsigarh)
  4. Nuh, Mewat (Haryana)
  5. Tarruwala, Sirmaur (Himachal Pradesh)
  6. Rahimapur, Shahjahanpur (Uttar Pradesh)

If not for the opportunity afforded by these Centres, these girls would not have attended any school!

Service Delivery Partner

IIMPACT Australia works closely with IIMPACT India, our service delivery partner for the education of girl children in rural India.

IIMPACT India was founded in March 2003 by the alumni of the 1978 batch of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA) to mark their  Silver Jubilee reunion.  IIMA is a premier management education institution in Asia.

IIMPACT India was established with the single-minded objective of educating the under-privileged girl child from socially and economically disadvantaged sections of society.

IIMPACT India provides an alternative educational opportunity to girls, mostly from disadvantaged sections, who have limited or no access to schools. This is done through community-based Learning Centers, where they get meaningful and stimulating education up to Class 5 and are supported to enter mainstream education. Sound foundations established at IIMPACT Learning Centers prepare them for a good academic future.

At the end of 2012, IIMPACT released a special report titled “Educating the Girl Child – Transforming Lives“.

With this report we wish to share with readers our ten years of experiences working with the most marginalized communities. These experiences have been drawn from our direct work as well as the studies, observations and experiences of our partners, donors and associates in the common mission of educating the girl child in some of the neediest rural areas of India.
