Prime Trust organizes Children's Parliaments for children of the remedial schools and of our Self-Help Group members. 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.
The children in the slums do not have good access to quality education as their parents are unable to provide them. 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 make the children to pick up bad habits.
This program aims at providing training on acquiring leadership qualities, personality development. The objective of this program is to make aware their rights. The children are given information on the political system in India, about the environment. This program helps the children to acquire holistic development.
The long term impact of this program would be to create a potential society who will be assets of our nation.
