context of KGBVs
Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya or KGBVs are residential schools specifically designed to provide education to minority girls in India. They are throughout the country in what is known as Educational Backward Blocks.
challenges of KGBV
Over time, KGBVs have battled multifold challenges in fulfilling the vision they were set up for.
These challenges can be solved by working with teachers of the school and support them to develop professionally. This should be accompanied with a focus on socio-emotional skills and cognitive skills of girls studying in schools.
No sustainable change can take place in isolation and hence it becomes important to ensure officials, teachers and girls studying in the school work coherently for a common goal.
