Challenge

Children and women living in the slums of kolkata are vulnerable to many social vices like school drop out, early marriage, domestic violence etc.

Solution

We plan to conduct awareness programs on the community to educate and inform the people on ways to cope with the prevalent social vices. Importance of education will be a key focus area. Children between the ages of 5 -15 yrs will be provided remedial coaching so that they do not drop out of school due to lack of guidance at home. They will also be provided with a nutritious meal so that health is not a cause of drop out. Women above 18 yrs of age will be provided vocational training

Long-Term Impact

Early child marriage and school drop out will be reduced. Women will become empowered to protect themselves and their children thereby contributing to the development of the community
