Challenge

A study by the NCPCR (India) has revealed that the children of sex workers face abuse and discrimination, which results in them facing stigma in the society. Most of these children attend schools with limited resources, leading to poor learning outcomes. Parental neglect and inability, the lack of a responsible father figure and the prevailing anti-social influence in a redlight area negatively impact the worldview and value system of these children.

Solution

Through Project Pratham, our vision is to facilitate a better and sustainable learning ecosystem for children in red light areas and ensure strong educational foundations, mental and physical well-being, career enhancement and parent and community strengthening. The project aims at training community educators from within the community to ensure sustainability of the project, leading to overall community development.

Long-Term Impact

This project will ensure 300 children continue their education every year and equip themselves to become positive contributors to society.
