Challenge

Many parents in the slums send their children to low cost private schools with the strong belief that education will help the children have better future. However, sometimes the family is unable to pay the fees and the children have to drop out of school. Usually if the family has more children than the girl child is the first to drop. It is also observed that the girl children, when she is in school, are more vulnerable to abuse.

Solution

Kidpower scholarship will ensure that the girl does not drop out of the school because of poor financial situation at home. Kidpower training will empower the girl and helps the girls to see themselves as strong, valuable and capable of breaking away from unhealthy patterns. Through this project we want to ensure that the girl completes her school education and will be able to secure a good job and a better and independent future.

Long-Term Impact

Kidpower believes scholarships for poor deserving girl students are a sound investment for the future generation. Kidpower pays an education fee and then provides school uniform, books, bag etc to the children. James Tootely in his book, 'The beautiful Tree' prescribes a similar approach to educate the poor children and calls it 'targeted vouchers for the poorest'. Kidpower training will prevent bullying, molestation, abduction, and other violence through knowledge, action, and skills.
