We are convinced that education is the basis of sustainable development

Girls’ and Women’s Empowerment, Literacy, and Teacher Training

These are some of the modules of our interventions in education. There always is a particular focus on the inclusion of disadvantaged people – so-called “low-caste” groups and the poorest. And the people living in the project communities are always invited to participate in the planning and implementation of the projects.

PHASE addresses several levels in order to improve the access to education: by setting up “alternative classes” for children who live too far away from the nearest school, by training teachers and improving the learning environment, and by building or renovating buildings; by raising awareness for the importance of education within communities, by providing adult literacy classes, and by making sure that the most disadvantaged – children from “low” castes, girls, and the poorest – have access to quality education.
