Identified Girl Children in Hyderabad Urban Slum

“ The child builds their future depends on a strong foundation which is laid at an early stage and the effort we put on them.”

Our main focus is on increasing the quality of education. Educating the Girl child, and educating the family and community become a priority. Education is not just about reading and writing, but also about learning new skills, learning new ways. The children are identified from cluster groups who are very poor and downtrodden. These people are migrated from different parts of Andhra Pradesh as well other state of India in search of livelihood. The community mainly consists of daily wage laborers, domestic helpers and garbage lifters. Whose income is very meager and they cannot afford to educate their girl child so, they send them for work. With the support for their educational needs the children are admitted into school and sometimes school nearby their area to get education.
