Challenge

When the country wide lock down was announced in India in March, 2020, there was an unprecedented hardship to the children. We cooked and distributed food to 150 people/ day. When the lock down was relaxed, we realized that there are some communities that we need to continue because they are vulnerable of the vulnerable. We decided to support a small number of children with a hope that the schools would reopen soon but after a year, the number has grown to 160 and is expected to reach 250.

Solution

When we started working in these communities, we realized that many children suffer from malnutrition and high rate of school drop out. These children either go to school for lunch or beg on the street. Since there is a lock down, no schools are reopened and if we don't support these children, they'll go the streets to beg exposing themselves to serious vulnerabilities. We give them food and engage in activities of academic and recreational value. This support will feed them for 45 days.

Long-Term Impact

Since we began this project, we've learned that these communities do not even have the networking with the state for their basic entitlements. Since then, we are trying to ensure that these children get all their basic entitlements, get admitted to the school and to continue to hand hold to ensure that they don't drop out of school. We are also exploring ways and means to rehabilitate these children's parents so that they'll have gainful employment to support their children.
