Summary

Help reach over 300 underprivileged children & women across the city of Bangalore at their point of need. Provide non-formal education to the following groups of people: A) Spoken English & Computer Classes for 78 slum children & 140 children in orphanages B) Tuitions & Life Skills Classes for 52 women rescued from trafficking/abusive situations C) Occupational Therapy, Medical Care & Special Needs Education for 72 Mentally Challenged Boys

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

A) For hundreds of underprivileged children in India, finding a job that pays well is close to impossible as they lack the skills required. English and Computer skills can increase their employability substantially. B) Hundreds of mentally challenged children are abandoned by their family and left in state care for the rest of their life. Though the state provides basic food & shelter, the boys lack the needed special education & skills necessary to live an independent & self sufficient life.

How will this project solve this problem?

A) U&I provides non-formal & special education to slum children and special needs children. Slum children learn English & Computers which enables them to apply for better paying jobs. The Advanced Job Skills Course equips young people with industry specific skills needed to get a job. B) For the mentally challenged boys at the state home, occupational therapy & vocational training enables them to live a self sufficient & independent life & earn a living as well.

Potential Long Term Impact

A) The training our students receive in English, Computers & Job Skills enables them to get jobs where they can make enough to support their families.Well paid jobs break the cycle of poverty and enables them to provide a better life for their children. B) For the mentally challenged boys, occupational therapy and vocational training enables them to live a more independent, healthy and self sufficient life. It also gives them the opportunity to have a steady source of income.
