Challenge

Lack of early childhood care and guidance for all slum children. Unavailability of alternative avenues for the academically unsuccessful students. Dearth of free clinical consultations, pathological diagnosis, medicines, nutritional supplements, hygiene kits, and health education sessions for the underprivileged people. Scarcity of public toilets, hand washing units and other sanitation facilities in the slums.

Solution

Calcutta Rescue supports 650 slum children through its education centres. Educational support is provided to the students from their pre-primary stage until they complete their education and start earning a living. For the academically unsuccessful ones, provisions are made for vocational training so that they can earn a living via alternative avenues. We work via 3 fixed clinics and 3 mobile clinics to provide primary healthcare services and facilitate WASH interventions in 32 slums.

Long-Term Impact

Enable 700 students from the urban slums with nutrition, remedial education, vocational training and job guidance, sports guidance and music engagements. Improve access to hygienic sanitation, closed bathrooms and clean water in 5 slums, directly affecting nearly 1300 households. Address preventive and curative healthcare of approximately 30,000 slum residents including infants, pregnant women and new mothers.
