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.
