Taking care of our planet also means taking care of each other.
Though most cases are mild, the number of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases worldwide is increasing rapidly. Morethan 3,50,000 cases of the virus have been reported within India. In order to limit the spreading of the COVID-19 virus and to support the health, well-being and safety of everyone involved in our projects, we temporarily put our regreening projects on hold until we know it’s secure to proceed again.
We ask for a little more patience and understanding. We will make sure your bunds will be dug when the time is right.
Indian Women and Child Welfare Trust helps village communities run Non-Formal Education Centers to ensure quality education to out of school children. These Non-Formal Education’s also act as sites of providing experience of quality education to communities. These centers are offering education to out of school children.
To identify the progress of a child we have categorized few levels of their learning. The levels are roughly equivalent to government classes. Level 0 is when a child enters the Non-Formal Education and can barely read or write. Level 1 is where she/he can read write small words and does simple counting; identify some numbers. When a child can start reading writing and understanding simple texts, in Mathematics can do basic counting and simple operations like addition and subtraction with small numbers, she is placed in Level 2. At level 3 a child can read, write and understand texts in language and in Mathematics understands concepts of multiplication, division, etc.
Another encouraging news to share with our donors is that the Non-Formal Education teachers (instructors) were given training in October 2019 to teach English language to the children attending Non-Formal Education centers. A team of Indian Women and Child Welfare Trust has recently reported that these instructors have been able to successfully introduce English to these children at Non-Formal Education. The language English has been introduced because there has been a constant demand from the community and the Government Schools (where the children seek admissions after graduating from these Non-Formal Education centers).
We thank all our resource partners for making the schooling possible for these children.
Once again, we are delighted to speak and share our children's progress and all-round performance through this Global Giving portal report.
One of our education center girl who is thirteen years old. She is a student of the non-formal education center in Vikas Puri slum. When she came to the non-formal education, she was not able to read or write. But now she has acquired the ability to read and write and do simple calculations. Her younger brother also attends the same non formal education and is also a bright student. They both enjoy studying together in the same grade. Her father is extremely satisfied with her performance.
We thank to Donors of Global Giving and their staffs and to each and every one who have been supporting our charitable nonprofit organisation.
Urban slums are breeding grounds for serious social issues like child labour, malnutrition, child marriages, addiction, HIV/AIDS and human trafficking for sexual exploitation. The children living in our city slums are often exposed to domestic violence, peer pressure and violent community brawls and often lack the attention of parents who are burdened with their own struggles for survival and rely on their child’s labour to supplement the family income.
Our Education Center are unique models of social change for children living in New Delhi’s slums. Based in community hubs our staff are positioned to get to the heart of the issues and provide solutions. They conduct regular surveys identifying issues such as children missing school and work with them and their families to encourage them to get the education that will be key in breaking the cycle of poverty.
Playgroups, after school tuition for older children, health check-up camps, self-help groups, education on the consequences of addictions and child marriage, and sports and cultural activities all help build communal harmony, health, hygiene and educational attainment.
Over 120 children are currently attending our extra-curricular classes and to date over 1000 slum-dwellers have enjoyed access to our other support services.
Help us to bring more activities to our slums and break the cycle of poverty.
