Convinced the community to send their daughters to school. Earlier girls were either forced to take up some micro level income earning activity as work as domestic help or stay at home and look after siblings while parents went to work.

But as girls learnt to read and write, helped their parents with mathematical calculations and reading newspaper/letters, parents realized importance of girl education.
Girls who have completed vocational training programmes are now gainfully employed.
Increased enrollment of girls from minority communities. Currently 30% girls are from minority communities.
