Preventing school dropout of 400 children in India



This project would prevent school dropout of 400 children from extremely poverty stricken families, for both children residing in the Children's and Observation Homes and children discharged from these homes thereby eliminating the risks of dropout children (re)turning to crime or becoming child laborers.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Children's and Observation homes in Mumbai house children, often from highly poverty stricken families. They are traumatized by their stint in these homes, suffer unspeakable stigma and struggle to lead a normal life. The children who live in these Homes come from different states of India, and hence different language backgrounds are educated in a Marathi medium school. The language difference makes it difficult for them to be motivated and continue their education.

How will this project solve this problem?

Sahaara commences interaction with the children of the juvenile home as well as their guardians while the children are still in the home. Those in the Home are provided with remedial education by Sahaara. The children are counselled after their discharge. Practical help is provided for them to get back to school in the form of interaction with school authorities and provision of school stationery supplies. Subsequent follow up visits are carried out to encourage them to continue in school.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will ensure 400 children continue their education every year and equip themselves to become positive contributors to society.
