Challenge

This project provides education, nutritional mid-day-meal, books, learning materials, school uniforms to 150 children from economically backward families within the age group of 6-16. Such children worked as child labours in agricultural firms. Mal nutrition limits development. Education with empty stomac is an impossibility often forcing children to go back as child labours. This project provides healthy nutition along with other necessary things required for providing education.

Solution

Every day, children receive nutritious mid-day-meal contributing to a healthy growth. This act as an added incentive to attend school. Books, learning materials, 2 sets of school uniforms in a year and a conducive learning atmosphere contribute to retention of these underlrivileged children in school, which in a broader aspect help to reduce child labour.

Long-Term Impact

This project has the potential in mainstreaming underprivileged children . Their basic needs are met & they get new life through gaining knowledge, vocational skills & life skills. Education increase threir confidence level thus helping them to become assets of the community. Their physical & psychological development make them productive citizens of the country. Our philanthropy inspire them to show humanity towards the community.
