Summary

It is estimated that India has more than 400,000 children living on streets. Number of street children in the city of Pune is a little over 10,427. About 50% children are from 6-14 years age group and 60% were not studying.

Challenge

In Pune 33% children are involved in vending 17%, in begging 12%, in construction work 42%. These children are often forced to work in tender age to contribute to families' income. Most of children resort to income generating activities such as selling articles, begging, construction work, rag picking, etc. Due to lack of education, they are not able to come out of vicious circle of poverty. We aim to help such children by providing them education so that they will be self-sufficient.

Solution

In this project "Care & School Education of street children" we want to build strong future of neglected sections of the society. Our team identifies such children and counsels them and their parents about the importance of education. These children are receiving formal school education. Majority of children enrolled into our program used to beg on the streets for money and/or food and now they don't beg and are now conscious about the basic hygiene. Now they want to transform their lives.

Long-Term Impact

This initiative is fulfilling the need of the poorest and vulnerable i.e. street children. It has met their need for food, medical care, sound health, school education and thereby good future. They needed the inclusion into society and now are the part of the society. They needed cleanliness, hygiene, articles which we have provided them. These children have become more socially wise.
