Shiksha will provide a free and quality education to 1,000+ children of migrant labourers in Gurgaon, Haryana, India. In addition to a completely free education, all students will be provided with free books, stationery, uniforms, and a nutritious mid-day meal.
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.
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.
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.
