Education & Skill Development
Education & skill development are the most
fundamental pillars of a functional society. Many children grow up, with their
parents working in neighbourhood towns. This involuntary migration is sought in
most of the rural and urban areas with the aim to escape from unemployment,
social discrimination and disaster. These ‘home alone’ children are left
without attention, become early drop outs from school, more likely to be child
labours and often suffer from health problems. As they are neglected by
their parents, they lack proper food, education, care, sexual abuse, etc.
Our aim is to provide such children and youth a secured future and help them with their denied rights – food, safety & education.
294 children were provided with free accommodation, food, uniform, school books, adequate stationery and health care. They have transformed from undernourished, unkempt illiterates to healthy, happy youngsters most of whom have completed ITI, Civil Engineering and Nursing courses. Many of these children are the FIRST in their families who can read and write.Read more
