Video: The UDAAN Project

Udaan, meaning flight is an accelerated learning camp is especially designed to help marginalized adolescent girls who never enrolled in school.

Many may have also dropped out of school and the project is designed to help them complete their primary education within 11 months.

This is achieved with the help of teachers trained in participatory approaches.

The camp, run by CARE India and a partner organisation, Sarvodaya Ashram in Hardoi has been operating since 1999.

It teaches girls to develop a broader world view as well as provide a forum for critically examining social issues.

Udaan has not only made a difference for the girls who enrol; it also has helped bring about a positive change in families’ opinions about girls’ education.
