Challenge

In Andhra Pradesh, elementary education is subsidized. But college and university education is expensive. Secondly due to poverty, family disharmony, neglect by parents is marginalizing youth to continue for higher education. Teenage orphan youth become labourers to manage family, to have at least one meal a day. Once drop from school chances of back to schooling is bleak. In growing Indian economy, unless youth become skilled with education they do not find a place in job market.

Solution

Sponsorship reduces economic burden on families so that it gives opportunity for vulnerable youth to join in mainstream of education either through regular schooling or distance mode of education. Scholarships provide for basic but 'hidden' costs of education: fee for exam, tuition, books and stationary. Project staff provides backstopping support through mentoring and consistent review. Sponsored youth focus on education that helps in better career building

Long-Term Impact

The 500 educated youth will have good career which alleviate the poverty at family level that directly benefits for about 3000 - 4000 family members. It helps in increased GDP at national level. There will have multiplier effect as the benefited youth sponsor for the education of other youth in vulnerability. These youth become role model for others in the community for a social change to build educated society.
