Now after the free schooling to all the pupils of community, VGS is going to start the new Project as: ‘’Empowering the Girls’’ (from 15 September 2020) so that they can get high quality education till completion.

- VGS want to empower the girls to receive the same opportunities as boys.
- VGS encourage their parent to go continue their education till completion.
- VGS will pay special care to girls, if they need it.
- VGS is looking forward more program & initiatives for empowering the girls.
Why VGS going to start project?
According to VGS, girls are particularly vulnerable when school remains closed for long period of time. There is fear that a large number of girls, especially from the lower strata of society, may not return to school after the COVID-19 passes.
‘’We’II need to do more than simply reopen classrooms to make it possible for the poorest and most marginalized girls to return to school’’.
Vital Grammar School is taking the following five steps to ensure marginalized girls, alongside boys, can continue their education.
- Address financial barriers that prevent girls from going to school and that are likely to increase as a result of economic impact of COVID-19.
- Scale up gender-response distance education to reach the most marginalized girls.
- Intensify community mobilization and support for girl’s education, including for those who were out of school before the COVID-19 crisis.
- Prioritize girls’ safety and protection.
- Ensure meaningful participation for adolescent girls.
