RFP – Information, Education and Communication (IEC) Development

About the Organization:

Room to Read is a global organization transforming the lives of millions of children in low-income communities by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. They work in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations, and governments to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children and ensure girls can complete secondary school with the skills necessary to negotiate key life decisions.


Room to Read’s (RtR) Girls’ Education Program (GEP) ensures that girls complete secondary school and have the skills to negotiate key life decisions. In India, since 2004, the program has benefitted over 14000 girls across 7 states- Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana and Uttarakhand. Over the years, the program has witnessed powerful stories of change, has led to best practices to learn from, and innovative strategies to celebrate and share. Our program reinforces girls’ commitment to their own education, works with girls to develop essential life skills and increases support for girls’ education among their parents, school staff, and communities.

Project Vijayi

Project Vijayi endeavours to empower approximately 20000 girls through a life-skills based intervention that will help them complete their education, acquire critical employability skills and negotiate key life decisions that lay the foundation for successful lives for themselves, their families and ultimately for future generations. The program focuses on equipping girls with strong life skills that move them towards independence and employability: assessing the job market, developing resumes and preparing for interviews; understanding how be self-confident and safe in the workplace; gathering local resources and assets to develop networks; gaining familiarity with financial institutions; and building relationships with women entrepreneurs.

IECs materials will be instrumental in creating awareness on the issues we dealt with.
