Sahaara believes that every person has a dream and our work centers around ensuring that marginalized persons can articulate and work towards achieving their dream. Children living in Mumbai juvenile homes are one of the most marginalized children in Mumbai. Institutionalized, these children are most often from highly poverty-stricken families.

As a part of the holistic intervention therein, Sahaara imparts computer education to the children between fourteen to eighteen years of age in juvenile homes. Sahaara’s in- house computer course delivers a fitting foundation to the children preparing their skills for the technology-driven world outside the homes. The children attending the computer training get a start which will help them break out of the poverty cycle and fulfill their dreams of a stable future.

 

Below is the story of a child who has benefited from the MSCIT course conducted by Sahaara.

 

Sunil*, his younger sister and mother lived in a very small settlement on the outskirts of Mumbai. Sunil belongs to a very poor family. He lost his father at a very young age. His mother was unable to provide necessities to the children, so in 2015 when Sunil was 6 years old, she admitted him at the Chembur Children’s Home (CCH). Within a few months, he ran away from the hostel as he missed his family but when he realized the acute poverty at home, he decided to return to CCH, and ever since he has not attempted to run away again.

 

We at Sahaara try to provide support to such children in building them up academically and giving them growth through vocational training and increasing computer literacy. Sahaara works with the State Government to provide computer literacy to its beneficiaries through the Maharashtra State Certificate in Information Technology (MSCIT).

 

Sunil likes to hang out with the office staff at CCH and has always been very intrigued by computers. He was very happy to get enrolled in the MSCIT course and diligently attended all classes. He enjoys working on computers and says, “Thank you for this opportunity, this will help me achieve the bright future for me and my family that I have always dreamed of.” This year he is in 9th grade & doing well in his class.
