NGO Profile :
  • Project Nanhi Kali is an initiative of the K.C. Mahindra Education Trust and Naandi Foundation
  • The project aims to provide 10 years of quality education to girl children
  • Nanhi Kali currently supports the education of over 100,000 girls in 9 Indian states
K.C. Mahindra Education Trust - Project Nanhi Kali believes that education is the single most powerful intervention for transforming lives. For thousands of disadvantaged girls in India, education is the only weapon that will open doors to provide them with equal opportunity, so that they can grow, learn, and realize their own potential.

Project Nanhi Kali: This project aims to provide 10 years of quality education to girls from socially and economically marginalized communities. They provide academic support in the form of before or after-school classes that aim to bridge the learning gap in government school classrooms; material support in the form of schoolbags, shoes, books, uniforms, lunchboxes, and other essentials that help a girl go to school with dignity; and social support by mobilizing communities of parents, teachers, and village elders to make them active stakeholders in the process of change. The project is jointly managed by the K.C. Mahindra Education Trust and Naandi Foundation. Nanhi Kali is working with 18 NGO implementation partners at the grassroot level. The K. C. Mahindra Trust regularly monitors the NGOs and gives technical inputs wherever required.

Apart from providing educational support to over 120,000 underprivileged girls across 10 states,

Key Outcomes include: i) 10-20 percentage point increase in learning levels, ii) reduction in dropout rates to less than 10%, and iii) average attendance of 83%. This is significant considering in India, over 50% of girls dropout by the time they enter secondary schools.

Project Nanhi Kali is supported by several donors including Mahindra & Mahindra, Titan, HPCL, Franklin Templeton, HINCOL, Capgemini, Tata AIG, Mattel Children’s Foundation, and YES Bank
