Children born into poverty are affected by a variety of societal challenges that prevents them from achieving their goals. For example, factors such as unemployment and alcoholism within the family, single parenthood, neglect and abandonment force children to become laborers either during or after school. Illiterate parents can't assist in doing homework, worsening children's disinterest in education. Additionally, limited educational resources, poor infrastructure leave these children behind.
Evening school educates through remedial classes and experiential learning. We will also frequently conduct awareness programs related to physical, psychological and social issues faced by children. We will also provide counseling services during these hours. We will also teach them their rights and how to access them. The evening school will provide children with a structured after school environment; helping them spend time in a productive way towards their education.
The main goal is to empower and reenergize the children to pursue their dreams. The awareness programs and counseling services will address the childrens' needs holistically. We hope that awareness about oneself and society will help these children to develop a strong personal identity paired with coping and life skills. In addition, we hope that the children take these lessons into their adulthood.
