Our project (NELE) aims to provide education and shelter to 250 children in the age group of 8 to 15 years in Bangalore. Most of these kids are from poorest of the poor background where they are deprived of basic necessities of life not to mention about Education & health. Because of lack of amenities, they either run away or become rag pickers on the street doing all kind of odd jobs. If these kids are not taken care properly at right age they become vulnerable to all kinds of social evils.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Children from extremely poor families are deprived of all the basic necessities of life leave alone good education and quality health care. Because of their background either run away from their homes and become either a rag pickers or start begging on the street or start doing all kinds of odd jobs. They become target of all kinds of social evils. These children have all the potential to become a good citizen and productive member of the society if nurtured properly at their tender age.
How will this project solve this problem?
Through NELE we aim to rescue these vulnerable street kids and provide them with initial counseling so as to bring some peace and tranquility at their mental level. Provide them with quality shelter where they get homely care and support. We enroll them into Govt School where they get an opportunity to study along with other kids and grow. Basically through this project we are aiming to bring a ray of hope to these kids & provide them with all means to become a productive member of this society.
Potential Long Term Impact
In Long term we are aiming to produce responsible citizens by cultivating these talents at their tender age. We are trying to mend the life of these susceptible kids by providing them with decent shelter, self-sustaining education, and better health standards and inculcate Good Habits among these children. If this problem is not addressed delicately then these kids may become victims of all kinds of social evils and become an anti-social which will impact their life as well as society as a whole
