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.
