The Girl Child Education project aims at providing education to the young girls in the age group of 6-18 years belonging to the lesser privileged section of the society, which is more prone to behaving in a biased manner against their girl child, simply because of their gender.

The GCE project had started as part of the Higher Education project (earlier known as Future Smiles project) in the year 2013 but became independent because of the different objectives of the two projects.

GCE project encourages girls to complete, continue and return to their education (in cases of drop-outs) through financial support in their school education and fights the social norm of giving less importance to them. This is a especially carved out project to ensure that social evils like child marriage, child abandonment and biased nature against girls is fought against to ensure equality for the girl child, since these practices have been observed to be more dominant in the underprivileged communities, owing to absence of education and finances, which acts as catalyst in promoting ill-practices that denies the inherent and basic Right to Education to girls.
