AROH Foundation plans to improve learning outcomes of poor and underprivileged children in slums. These children suffer from extreme disparity and deprivation and are engaged in rag picking, waste picking or other small jobs. These children are not attending school regularly and are likely to drop out of school. The project aims to provide care and education facilities to 500 such children in the age group of 6-10 years and remove them from shackles of child labour and poverty.
Slums across the capital of India are hubs of poverty & deprivation. People residing in slums suffer from lack of basic amenities & extreme poverty & hunger. They engage their children in labour & other menial jobs like rag picking & waste picking and do not value education. Children often drop out of school before they reach elementary level. The future of children is bleak as they grow up to be ignorant and uneducated and are never able to break to break the cycle of poverty.
The project will open a cluster of 10 Remedial Teaching Centres in slums to impart grade specific education to 500 children, 50 children in each centre. A community teacher would be engaged to conduct the classes. Proven approach of multiple level reinforcement through project based learning methodology. Curricula and teaching learning modules are already available with the Foundation. In one year, these 500 children will have improved learning outcomes and would attend school regularly.
The project will help 500 children remain in school and complete their cycle of primary education. The project would generate the interest of parents and children in getting educated and understanding value of education. A resource pool will be created in the community through capacity building and training of teachers for long term sustainability. The project would also help in reducing child labour and restoring their Right to Education, thereby giving them a brighter future.
