Challenge

Economic migrants from across India come to Gurugram, Haryana, to earn a livelihood. They often earn less than Rs. 10,000/- ($150) per month between two working parents. Due to lack of essential documentation or financial resources, their children often cannot be admitted to schools. These children often end up as child labourers, instead of being in a classroom.

Solution

We provide a free education, nutrition, and basic health care to these children. Our Centers enable them to join the education process, rather than be left behind.

Long-Term Impact

By educating 1,000+ children who would otherwise miss out, we ensure that they become educated citizens and put them on the path to sustainable livelihoods.
