Rag-pickers leave their homes at the wee hours of morning @5am for scavenging work; construction site workers assemble from 730am in groups expecting a contractor to choose them. Both these set of people do not have assured source of earning & livelihood, let alone a fixed place of work. Mostly both the parents work, leaving the kids back home at the mercy of neighbors/others to feed them morning meal. Kids roam around the shanties un-cared for along with the dogs,pigs, cattle with no schooling
We believe Preschools work: When It's Done Right, The Benefits Last for life time; we provide these marginalized children nurturing care & enriched learning experiences designed to aid in cognitive & social development of child's overall growth including spoken language development, early literacy, learn to count, recognize numbers etc. Besides our center engages children in balanced learning activities & play, provide nutritious one-course mid-day meal, regular medical attention etc
Our project is an economic investment in Early Child Education, has leveraged impact, lasting outcomes & benefits don't fade away unlike many other programs. Child Learning Center helps marginalized families access early education programs that prepare them for success in school & life, in addition to improved cognitive system that increases their self-sufficiency as responsible adults; Beyond benefiting societal good, ECE significantly impacts the socioeconomic outcomes of individuals/community
