The ‘Educating The Girl Child’ project aims at sponsoring education for girl children to help fight societal norms. In this program, Intuit supports girls who are either from dysfunctional families or single parent families where support for their education is negligent.
The spirit of the program is to support education for girl children and create opportunities for families who otherwise do not have access to education. The program is innovative in its conceptualization, Intuit sponsors education for a girl child for every female employee who joins the company.
