Educate 40 children from the slums of India

Educate 40 children from the slums of India

Summary

We provide children from urban poor communities a chance of a better life and a future through scholarships to English-Medium schools, as well as after-school clubs and homework help. This is simply a must to have a chance to break inter-generational poverty traps in India. Today 40 of our children from the slums of Bangalore are missing funding for their next year of education. By donating you will be giving them a chance to get a fair start in life.

Challenge

India has a mandatory education policy that obliges free education of children up to 10th grade (complete middle secondary school). However, according to the World Bank, only about half of students complete grade 10. This has much to do with the quality of education and learning; where lack of management and teacher knowledge, skills and commitment, rote learning and moving students to the next grade without right level of knowledge and skills, and physical and verbal abuse are commonplace.

Solution

Project +10 is a sponsorship program for underprivileged children to go to English-Medium schools, where they get a well rounded education that is essential for being able to take up future employment and for being well functioning citizens. The program also offer after-school clubs, where children gets helped with their homework and in subjects where they need development; something they otherwise would struggle with in their daily lives of the slums with cramped conditions and power cuts.

Long-Term Impact

The project will enable children to get a worthy education, enabling them to acquire the right knowledge and skills to match the needs of the Indian economy. By focusing on children from urban poor communities, the project aims, not only at lifting them out of poverty, but to contribute to a more inclusive and equal society overall.
