There exists significant gender gap in enrolment at the elementary level, which is very acute for girls belonging to the Scheduled castes, Scheduled Tribes and other disadvantaged groups. Reduction in the gender gap would require a concerted focus on the hard-to-reach groups. Therefore, it is necessary to include certain interventions addressing the specific education needs of girls. The objectives of NPEGEL are:

  1. To provide for block-focused projects for girls at risk and girls in difficult circumstances with clearly defined outcomes.
  2. To develop and promote facilities to provide access, facilitate retention of girls and ensure greater participation of women and girls in the field of elementary education.
  3. To improve the quality of elementary education through gender specific interventions and to stress upon the relevance and quality of girls’ education for their empowerment
