    Quality Education For Girls

    Gender-based discrimination is still prevalent in many parts of our country. Parents mentality still remain the same that a boy will become the bread-earner of the family and will remain with them and support them even after marriage as opposed to the girls and therefore, they prefer to educate him better. Girls are treated as an extra burden and they prefer to save money for their wedding rather than spending on private education. A recent survey shows that in the last four years, Delhi government schools have been 52% female and 48% male, while private schools citywide have been 60% male and 40% female.
