Girls are often counted as some of the hardest to reach children. They face numerous
barriers in their efforts to acquire formal education. For example, Rajasthan has 9 of the 26 most backward districts in India. The gender gap
in these districts is so immense that the females are lagging behind their
male counterparts in all spheres of life. The Pali District has around 10%
gender gap at primary school level and an alarmingly high 25% gender
gap at upper primary school level.
