Vetted

Summary

Since 1992, Shaishav has been committed to realising the basic rights of children, particularly the underprivileged. At present, we are working toward creating a Child Rights Training and Resource Center, which will be used as a safe space for children and youth to learn and grow in, as well as used for trainings and supplementary tutoring classes. We already have the space (generously donated this past year) and are now working toward furnishing at making it child friendly!

Challenge

Despite having one of the world's fastest growing economies, India is struggling to cope with growing inequality and poverty. Lack of education, resulting in child labour, affect millions of children across the country. At present in the communities where Shaishav works, while 77.15% of girls age 6-14 are in school, only 18% of girls age 15-18 continue their education. Shaishav wants to create a safe space for these children and youth to receive supplemental education and life skills training.

Solution

This new Child Rights Training and Resource Center will serve as a child-friendly space which will be utilized every day. Shaishav will hold tuition classes for drop outs and children who need extra support in their studies. The space will be used for our regular leadership camps and life skills trainings in the communities in which we work, as well as training for outside organizations. Above all, the space will be a safe and accessible platform in which children can play, laugh and grow.

Long-Term Impact

This training center will support and impact thousands of children and adults. Through tuition classes, leadership camps and life skills exercises, as well as capacity building for external organizations, this will be a permanent space that children, youth and adults can come to learn, play and grow.
