Why this project?

There are so many projects for children in India these days, so I was interested in knowing what makes this project unique. I asked Prakash and this is what he said - 

NISD’s project is unique  in comparison to other children’s education projects because here we want to educate children, particularly girls, that will save them from hazardous bidi rolling business.  It will break the vicious cycle of  poverty- early marriages-early and repeated pregnancies-unhealthy children-school drop out- bidi rolling and again poverty.  NISD  wants to bring all these children in the school, retain them in the school, give them life  and employable skills so that they will not come in bidi business and break this cycle.

Nisd really tackle the root causes of poverty by addressing the complex web of problems that trap children into it.
