This award programme pioneered by Coromandel was launched in April 2005 to:

  • Reduce the percentage of rural girl child school drop-outs.
  • Enthuse the rural girl child to compete for the award.
  • Encourage the rural girl child to go for higher education.

The Rural Girl Child Education scheme was initially introduced in Andhra Pradesh. Enthused by its success, Coromandel extended the scheme to Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Orissa and Maharashtra.

Top girl child scorers in class IX are selected from Government and Zilla Parishad schools to receive an award towards their books, uniforms, feeds and other educational needs.

Thanks to this initiative more than 4300 rural girl students are back in school.
