Poor & illiterate parents in their struggle to make both ends meet, often neglect/ can't afford proper care of children which is very important especially during their formative years of life.Their poor health coupled with lack of guidance from their illiterate parents leads to poor academic performance too. >50 % poor girls dropout of school even before completing grade 8.Under this project, such deprived children get supplementary nutrition, medical care and guidance & support in education
IDEA runs Study-cum-activity center in slums, where around 25 children per batch are benefited by individualized study class, regular study habits,supplementary nutrition, six monthly medical check-up & treatment &other developmental opportunities.
Proper child care,basic education & the developmental opportunities received during the formative years of life have long term impact on the life of children & minimize the incidence of school drop-out among the poor. The project will help 300 kids.
