Started in 1996 by Anand Mahindra, Project Nanhi Kali is a national girl child sponsorship program, which supports the education of underprivileged girl children in India. Designed to support economically and socially disadvantaged girls to complete 10 years of schooling, the project has transformed the lives of more than 450,000 girls across 14 states over the past 2 decades. Project Nanhi Kali provides every girl 360-degree support including daily afterschool academic support and annual school supplies kit including a school bag, stationery, pullover/raincoat and feminine hygiene material to enable them to attend school with dignity. The project provides every girl with access to a personalized, digital learning software, pre-loaded on digital tablets. Further, to promote holistic development, a professionally designed sports curriculum has been integrated into the intervention, providing girls with the opportunity to regularly participate in sports and fitness activities. These interventions have resulted in the consistent improvement of learning outcomes amongst girls from underserved communities. Project Nanhi Kali has also achieved a high retention rate of 90%, with less than 10% of the girls dropping out of the program.
