Your support towards sponsoring of the children would help make a qualitative difference in the lives of the children and the community in in Vighavli village of Mangaon region which is one among 15 tehsils of Raigad District in Maharashtra State, India. The holistic model which we adopt under Project Anando works with parents, schools, peer groups and the local community along with the child. The focus is on the 3E Approach - Educating, Empowering and Equipping children for employability.
High number of school drop outs in secondary education the reasons being: 1) Poverty - When two square meals are difficult to provide education comes way down in list of parents priorities. 2) Educational Material adds to the expense for the parents. 3) Parents lack awareness on importance of education & the growth of their child. 4) Children become income earners of the family. 5) School not in close proximity. This also adds up to the expense as travelling cost.
Through our Project Anando,our goal is not just literacy but complete all round development of each child through our 3E Method - Educate, Empower & 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. The organization supports deserving children to take a decision post state level exams on the career they want to take up and complete their higher studies.
The children with the kind of support and strengthened capacities are able to break out of the vicious generational cycle of poverty enabling to emerge them as 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 financially independent and stable.
