To support children for their remedial classes

Summary

Time may wait for you and me, but not for our children. Therefore, right education with right opportunities at the right time is the focus of this project. We don’t let any child easily drop out. Instead, we help him identify his/her potential and reintegrate with regular stream.This project aims to educate and empower children in slums and rural areas of Puducherry by offering evening remedial classes, counseling services, awareness and community-sensitizing programs.

Challenge

There is a problem in the delivery of education at school levels. We want to wean ourselves out at some point. At the school level, there is a learning gap because children are learning by rote. We are trying to break that pattern and tell the children that we are doing school-related work with you, but the format will increase your understanding of the subject. Children born into poverty are affected by a variety of societal challenges that prevents them from achieving their goals. For example, factors such as unemployment and alcoholism within the family, single parenthood, neglect and abandonment force children to become laborers either during or after school. Illiterate parents can't assist in doing homework, worsening children's disinterest in education. Additionally, limited educational resources, poor infrastructure leave these children behind.

Solution

In remediation situations, it is important to evaluate the students. Students who struggle with reading do so because they lack specific skills necessary for proficient reading. The child makes reading errors because they lack necessary skills to read the word correctly. Evening school educates through remedial classes and experiential learning. We will also frequently conduct awareness programs related to physical, psychological and social issues faced by children. We will also provide counseling services during these hours. We will also teach them their rights and how to access them. The evening school will provide children with a structured after school environment; helping them spend time in a productive way towards their education. Long-Term

Impact

The long term impact would be of empowering and reenergizing the children to pursue their dreams. The awareness programs and counseling services will address the children’s' needs holistically. We hope that awareness about oneself and society will help these children to develop a strong personal identity paired with coping and life skills. In addition, we hope that the children take these lessons into their adulthood.

To help support women to get micro credit

Summary

Empower 50 women start or expand small businesses of their own by providing micro-credit loans or grants.

 Challenges

The women in India face the fallowing challenges:

Dowry:  It is a based ritual of transfer of property including cash, vehicles, household goods, etc. A Dowry is defined as the property that is received by a Man from the family of his would be Wife during the process of their Marriage. Being totally illegal this ritual is still practiced all around India. Gifts and cash are broadly exchanged between the two families calling it to be a Tradition that has been followed from ages.

NO Education:Another most famous and popular challenge that woman’s face is related to low educational level. Although a lot of new schemes and plan are being introduced as a medium of improvising this condition, as a result situation is for sure getting better but only to some extent. Still large no of girls, constitute a large body of underprivileged citizen. They are taken away from this basic necessity of life, forcing them to make their involvement in household work. Most in backward caste these women have to face Lack of Education and attention as compared to boys. It is believed that until these backward groups hold a major responsibility for future development of the country. Still, this sector of society, either ignore or sideline the law of “Right to education” of girls, who wants to explore the world. Women Trafficking:Famous for enforcing young girls or woman to enter the world of Prostitution or Drug Dealing as means for their livelihood for survival this is another most threatening situation for a woman. Once trapped in this cage, possibility of getting free becomes next to impossible. This so called business not only hears a woman physically, but mentally and socially too. She eventually loses her identity, feels isolated and becomes unfamiliar with the outside world. The shocking truth of this industry is all ages is not a limitation her youngest to eldest woman are pushed into it willingly or unwillingly either-way resulting to lost childhood of little. Female-infanticide: Another most disheartening issue that a woman’s face. We hear a lot of cases every other day related to the killing of a girl child in the womb or soon after she takes the birth. Nation like India is still fighting against female infanticide. It’s totally bizarre act done by some shameless and heartless people who call them themselves to be human. Looks like it’s not the mother to decide whether to keep the child or not. Due to certain laws and new schemes, the act has descended to some extent but hasn’t stopped totally.

Thus, it still needs to be uprooted. This discrimination on the basis of gender is for sure, isn’t genuine, but mindsets of people even today revolves around some old myths or misconceptions that needs to end soon.

 

Solution

Keeping in mind the challenges faced by the women in India, prime Trust offers small loans from the banks and motivate the women group to start a small business and to generate income. Prime Trust interacts with other financial institutions and facilitate the groups in getting credit. The objective of this program is to make our women as a small entrepreneur.

   Long-Term Impact

This project empowers women to become self-reliant and self-sustaining. It gives them the financial independence that they rightfully deserve. Additionally, there are added opportunities for employment opened. They are also able to meet other small business owners through our Akshaya store meetings. This ability to form networks with other women gives them access to support systems and safety nets that they otherwise would not have within their own families.
