To educate and empower the children in slums and rural areas of Puducherry by offering evening remedial classes, counseling services, awareness and community-sensitizing programs.
The factors such as poverty affect children in achieving their goals. The issue of unemployment, alcoholism within the family, single parenthood, neglect and abandonment force the children into poverty and become laborers either during or after the school. The children can’t get any educational support from the parents. The lliterate parents can't assist in doing homework, worsening children's disinterest in education. Additionally, limited educational resources, poor infrastructure leave these children behind.
The Evening school educates through remedial classes and experiential learning. The awareness programs related to physical, psychological and social issues faced by children. The Counseling services during these hours and 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.
The objective and long term impact is to empower and reenergize 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.
