Lokmitra is reaching out to the most marginalized groups like Dalits, Muslims and Girls for for promoting education and leadership. Education is one of the key instruments for social change and empowerment of marginalized communities. But school drop-out rates remain high (up to 60% by grade 10th); children belonging to Scheduled Caste and Muslim communities are largely excluded; inequalities persist; quality is poor and learning achievements are low. A compulsory Education Law exists, however its implementation has been lagging on the ground. Lokmitra provides supplementary support onwards increasing access to quality and inclusive elementary education by promoting learning and mainstreaming. These efforts of Lokmitra have been supported by RGF, SDTT & EMW.
