Summary

Nirosha ,the middle child of an impoverished temple priest joined the Trust at the age of 9 .She completed high school but fate took an unexpected twist when her father collapsed in the temple one morning forcing her to grow up overnight . Despite a lot of family pressure to get married, Nirosha fought her battle for education. She completed a 3 year Diploma in Computers and now is employed. Many more Niroshas are dreaming. We spend $241 to take care of one child in one year.

Challenge

These children are all first generation learners who come from extremely poor households. These families who live in large urban slums are extremely vulnerable because they do not have steady incomes. The mass migration from the villages to the cities in search of livelihoods, the spiraling inflation, and the sheer indifference of the metropolis, have all pushed the poor to leading lonely and miserable lives and it is the children who are the worst affected.

Solution

Ashwini Charitable Trust has reached out to such families living in the 10 slums in and around the Ulsoor area in Bangalore asking them to send their children to us and we ensure that these children get an education and are able to make use of the opportunities available. Giving all the 300 ACT children a love for learning, getting them to go to school/college regularly, and creating in them the confidence that they can aspire for and achieve their dreams .

Long-Term Impact

The current generation of underprivileged children living below the poverty line can integrate seamlessly within mainstream society.We can provide quality education and all round development, including skill building, in order to provide avenues for employment that are suited to every child's dominant intelligence and strengths.
