Challenge

Nearly 606 children are living in Karimadom slum. Out of which 210 children are in the age of 0-5 Years. Around 246 children are in the age of 6- 12 years & 150 children represents the age group of 13- 18 years. A study conducted by Veedu Society found 77 percent of the children are school dropouts. The summer camp is for such children. Finding their aptitudes and guiding them to follow their dreams to recreate motivation is the aim of the camp.

Solution

The "Dream Summer Camp" will provide wide variety of opportunities to the children of 13 to 18 years to find their aptitudes by exposure to different areas of interest. After finding aptitudes children will be helped to develop their individual interests thus creating motivation to go forward with education. The education in India has gaps especially in aptitude finding. Addressing the issue will help in creating interest in education.

Long-Term Impact

The project will impact 150 children from the slum by inspiring them to think about their future and by creating a dream in every child who participates in the summer camp thus helping them to grow into successful individuals who contribute to society.
