Educational Sponsorship for 50 children - India



Children of casual labourers in India often drop out of school owing to marginal family income. Our sponsorship project ensures that these children especially girls are not robbed of a possible bright future by providing them quality education and counseling.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In India there are more casual labourers today than ever before who have irregular jobs, sometimes on a day to day basis and with no guarantee or benefits, owing to which they have low disposable incomes and therefore sometimes have to discontinue sending their kids to school. Many of these talented young kids who should be in school getting an education are therefore forced to sit out. This is a huge waste of talent which if supported can contribute to the society in the future.

How will this project solve this problem?

Through this project we take up responsibility of 50 such children every year and give them educational support to keep them in school. The children are provided with school fee, uniforms, shoes and study material. Our social workers pay regular home visits to monitor their progress and to involve their parents. We encourage and conduct co-curricular activities like exposure visits, workshops/camps, life skill sessions, competitions and career guidance sessions for their personality development.

Potential Long Term Impact

Due to sponsorship and motivation of this kind, the parents no longer feel burdened and in fact encourage their children to go to school. Continual support to these children till they pass out of school will equip them to face the future with confidence.
