Challenge

Most children are either not enrolled in formal education and those that are enrolled, often drop-out from the system. Adolescent girls in particular are more vulnerable to being trafficked and eventually in the sex trade. The girls are compelled to get into the trap of early marriage and then become the mother of two / three children in such an early age. As a result, they remain with poor health conditions and such vicious cycle goes on generation after generation.

Solution

The project aims to provide educational & nutritional support to the vulnerable girl children to ensure retention in schools, developing knowledge on life skill & cognitive aspect also vocational education simultaneously with education

Long-Term Impact

Entire Sundarban region is very much prone to child labour, early marriage, trafficking & abuse and the children in most cases are deprived of their basic rights. In order to address those issues Sabuj Sangha plans to initiate effort to provide educational & motivational support to such vulnerable girl children in West Bengal. Sabuj Sangha will start with 2500 vulnerable girl children of 12 - 18 year's age group, and on successful intervention will plan to replicate to other areas.
