Challenge

Social discrimination in schools and in the streets demotivate children from cobbler community to go to school. Poverty and low socio economic status also force children to remain in their homes or dropout from schools. Sometimes parents bring back their children from schools to assist their work. Girl children are restricted once they attain puberty. Girl children dropout due to their responsibility as baby-sitters. If educated, these children would become the first generation of learners.

Solution

This project will help poor children to buy teaching and learning materials, school bags and uniforms to attend school regularly. The Children's Clubs will motivate them and create opportunities for them to realise their full potential and improve their social and emotional development. Once they develop interests in education and participation in after school programs, they will improve their academic education and life skills and motivate their parents to support them to achieve their goals.

Long-Term Impact

This program will facilitate to increase the level of education and social skills among 150 poor children of cobbler community. More and more children would join schools and improve their academic education and realize their inner faculties. They will prepare for higher education and share their acquired skills and talents to improve the lives of their communities. VDC partners with key stakeholders and motivate them to address the basic needs of these children and their families in future.
