Our work seeks to alleviate poverty in Dehradun by providing the many disenfranchised children in the city with the opportunity to pursue an education. We first reach out to children in the slums Once they've achieved an elementary level, we help to mainstream them into formal schools by providing scholarships that pay their school fees and living costs. Tutorials in the evening reinforces their lessons and gives tools to thrive academically. WE ARE A VEHICLE FOR EMPOWERMENT THROUGH EDUCATION
Street & slum children have been deprived of education, nutrition, medical attention and laughter. The day to day struggle to survive for children has robbed them of a chance to compete fairly in our society. We educate them to break the poverty cycle.
By the end of the project: More than 1000 children will be protected from streets. Children will be enrolled in mainstream education. Orphan children will stay in the shelter provided by the organization and continue their education & vocational training respectively. The performance of the project will set the example and encourage the government and it's policies to protect the street child. We provide nutrition, medicine & health care to marginalized children.
* 500 youth who are at risk in the target area will be sensitized on the bane of children not being in school and provided with counseling, sensitization, vocational training & placement. * Capacity building of the teachers will be affected on proper intervention techniques * To ensure effective implementation and monitoring of the Program regular surveys will be conducted by project coordinators with assistance of teachers/volunteers.
