Summary

Ashraya's creches provide a safe, healthy and educational environment for underprivileged children of construction workers, petty traders, slum dwellers and domestic maids. Our services reach out to the poorest of India's children in the age group of 2-5 years.We recently started two new creches situated in the slum area of Bangalore. We run a total of 7 creches catering to about 250 poor children.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Most of the below poverty line families, live hand to mouth. Due to this, the women, having very young children are forced to go to work , leaving their little ones unattended. Children are often left unattended in unsafe, basic labor camps or makeshift shanties while parents struggle to earn a $1 a day.The children usually have little or no access to education.

How will this project solve this problem?

Ashraya daycare centers provide a supervised, safe environment for these children along with daily lunches, medical attention and basic education skills. It enables women to go to work and augment the meager family income. Apart from being looked after well, the children receive a sound base for learning and are encouraged to do formal schooling.

Potential Long Term Impact

The emphasis is to ready children for school and encourage parents to send them regularly despite a migratory, unstable lifestyle. Some enroll in the school run by Ashraya.The way out of poverty is to learn a better trade, English, or finish school.
