SANTI will provide free education, lunch and study materials to children aged between 6 to 14 years old, who have dropped out or have never attended a school, from a poor village area near Rajgangpur, Odisha, India.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In this rural village, from a poor society, everyday a child beg in train station for food, collect metal scraps and sell them, clean table in restaurants, work as a domestic servant, work in local factories etc. Nobody worry about the child's food or education. We are generating a society of young children without education and job to survive.
How will this project solve this problem?
In SANTI, we have identified these poor children, quite a few of them are orphan and no relatives. After discussion with these children we decided to change their life. We will provide free education, one time meal, study materials to these children aged between 7 to 14 years old, who never attended or dropped out from a school, from various areas near Rajgangpur, Odisha, India. We will provide vocational training such as cake making, jewelry making, package making & mushroom cultivation etc.
Potential Long Term Impact
SANTI is already providing food, shelter, education to 10 children since more than a year. The poor community wants SANTI to support more children. Based on the limited resources, we want to launch this child labor to school program, at least we can send few more children to school then to work. We will educate them also how to make a living. A goal of life never felt beyond basic necessities.
