Improving girls' educational levels has been demonstrated to have clear impact on the health and economic future of young women, which in turn improves the prospects of their entire community. The government of India launched National Programme for Education of Girls at Elementary Level (NPEGEL) in 2003. It was an incentive to reach out to the girls who the SSA was not able to reach through other schemes. The present study was taken up to see the impact of girl child friendly environment in NPEGEL SCHOOLS on enrolment and dropout in three regions of Andhra Pradesh. The data was collected from 20 schools of each region.
