It is still a fact that the vulnerable children in remote areas of Andhra Pradesh do not go for schooling either due to economic disparity or ignorance of the parents or lack of facilities or many other factors. Girl children are more deprived of the education as they are treated differently than of male children with the strong premise that they go out one day or other after the marriage. Hence, the girl children are considered more as burden.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Children are the main victims as they are not able to enjoy the childhood by going to school, enjoying with other children and playing with them. Respective target families are also vulnerable as they are not able to send their children to schools due to their economic situation as their wages are needed for their survival. Hence, both the parents and the children are vulnerable as they are not able to avail the right of education.
How will this project solve this problem?
Non-school going children, especially the girl children, will be ensured to go to school after motivating the parents and the children by imparting them the values of education for their development. The families will be supported with alternate livelihood promotion activities to enhance their financial status and to send their children for schooling with the support extended through this project.
Potential Long Term Impact
Development of both the children and their families is ensured as the education of the children enhance their capacities and capabilities while the income generation support to the parents enable them to enhance their economic status. Ultimately, both the children and parents live with pride and dignity in the society, which is the ultimate goal of this project.
