Help to start FIVE Evening Schools

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.

Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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.

Children's Parliament for children in slums

Summary

Children’s Parliament is a new concept followed by Prime Trust for the children in slums and also for the children in our Remedial Schools. These parliaments are designed for children between the age of 9 and 14 and encourage them to engage in local, national and international democratic processes. Essentially these children are discussing issues that directly affecting their lives. Through these parliaments we believe that every child should be able to express themselves openly and without fear.

Challenge

We can’t expect the children to have good access to education. The children living in vulnerable condition are not raised well and they do not know their rights. The children are forced to discontinue their studies and sent for employment to support their families thereby losing their opportunity. The ambiance in their area makes the children to pick up bad habits.

Solution

The objective of this program aims at providing training on acquiring leadership qualities, personality development. This project is also intended the child to know their rights. The information on Indian political system, environment is also offered.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact of this program would be to create a potential society who will be assets of our nation.
