Our Project-Anando involves an intensive intervention in the lives of rural Underprivileged section from India and help them to complete their secondary education. Since 2005 we have helped over 11,000 beneficiaries by providing them with Educational material, Tutorials for Maths & English (ESL), Personality Development, Extra Curricular activities and Career Guidance programmes.
India has the largest number of out of school children in the world with aprox 55.5 million of whom (i.e. 36%) drop out between the age group 11-18 yrs. Inspite of the school dropout rates being higher in the rural areas there are only a few NGOs working towards addressing the needs of this group. The future of a young country like India is in the hands of this age group, hence the need to address the alarming issue of dropouts at the secondary school level becomes the key focus area of our work
Our NGO works towards uplifting underprivileged children by giving them all the necessary educational support so that they complete their formal schooling. Our goal is not just literacy but all around development of each and every child through our 3E Approach (EDUCATE, EMPOWER and EQUIP for employability) leading to our beneficiaries taking life changing decisions by choosing appropriate career paths further leading to their becoming responsible citizens of our country.
Through its ongoing efforts our organization is looking at building a generation of youth who are literate, confident and knowledgeable of the world in which they live and who are able to make effective career choices that would lead them to gainful means of livelihood and make them and their families financial independent and stable. This will help them to live life with dignity.
