Through this project, El Shaddai can support the education of 1000 children for a year by enrolling them in formal & non-formal schools and by, getting them school supplies. The no. of migrants from rural to urban areas have significantly contributed to the substantial increase in the street and working children who are devoid of education. Through our shelters, community centers & schools, we ensure that these children are in the loop of education by reaching out to them in their communities.
The inappropriate work & living conditions in the streets keep the children away from education, play&rest. The opportunities lost for learning & growth, reduce chances of prosperity in life and contributes to the increasing poverty. The reality in India is that children's work is often the only apparent avenue to their survival & they cannot afford education without an external hand of support. To combat this situation, El Shaddai enables 1000 children to have an education through this project.
ESCT provides education to children in streets & tent facilities through 2 schools, 3 shelters & 4 community centres. Our field workers go into the deprived communities to spread awareness on the importance of education & rule out misconceptions pertaining to the matter, convincing the illiterate parents who assume their children are not intelligent enough to grasp school lessons or who considers education to be expensive in relation to their earning capacity to give their children a chance.
This project will educate 1000 children allowing them to rise out of their miserable lives, uplifting their families' quality of life and breaking the vicious cycle of poverty. They will have a stable income, dignified life and a future to look forward to.They will be a part of the civilized society by becoming the law abiding and responsible citizens.
