Girls' Education Rally

“We are the girls of India and we don’t want to sit at home!”  That’s the chant that could be heard throughout the streets of the Eklavya Bhila Rana colony during yesterday’s Girls’ Education Rally.  Male and female students of all ages from the local government school marched through the streets with banners and signs advocating education for all of India’s youth.  Residents stood in their doorways to observe the commotion outside.  Check out the photos below!

The group prepares to take their cause into the streets of the community.
Overtaking the streets like a river of blue, the voices of the rally could be heard loud and clear throughout the colony.

Savita, one of Vikalp's fieldworkers, shows her support for the cause.

The boys show their support for allowing their sisters to go to school.
