The Odisha Model Tribal Education Society (OMTES)  
Establishment of Girls' Hostels for Tribal Girls
A new scheme has been introduced by the Union Govt. in the Ministry of Tribal Affairs for strengthening of education among Schedule Tribe girls in low literacy Districts. The programme aims at establishment of educational complexes in villages’ inhabited by primitive tribal groups. The scheme aims at bridging the gap in literacy level between the general female population and tribal women, through facilitating 100% enrolment of tribal girls in the identified District or Blocks, more particularly in naxal affected areas and in areas inhabited by Primitive Tribal Groups (PTGs). Besides it also aims at reducing drop-outs at the elementary level by creating the required ambience for education. Improvement of the literacy rate of tribal girls is essential to enable them to participate effectively in and benefit from, socio-economic development.
The scheme aims:
To promote 100% enrollment of Scheduled Tribe girls in the identified Districts, Blocks or pockets (for Primitive Tribal Groups), vis-a-vis present level of enrollment, class-wise, for all schools taken together;
To reduce dropouts at the primary and middle level school;
To monitor the running of the hostels/ complexes;
To make payments, grant of awards etc. as may be prescribed by the Ministry;
To arrange regular interaction between girls and Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANMs) to promote preventive health education and establish curative linkages of these hostels and complexes with health institutions;
To promote awareness among parents towards the importance of girls education; and
To tie up with potential recruiters so that immediately after passing, the student can get a job or can go in for self- employment.
