The aim of the project is to support the education costs of the orphan girl children living in Manasu home. The home is a unique place in the city of Visakhapatnam, India. The home is the only exclusive girl center in the city and around 45 children stay in the home. The children go to regular schools and they study well and excel not only in education but also in sports and other activities. Your support will help the children to continue their education for academic year 2019-20.
Every day, many children and young girls run away from their homes because of poverty, abuse and other reasons. Young girls are sometimes cheated in the name of love or marriage. In some cases, the sudden death of a family member can make a child very vulnerable. These girls can becoming an easy prey to those people who see them as an economic resource. In our society, we need to work a lot more harder in order to ensure the safety of our girls.
Manasu centre is the only girl-child centric centre in the city of Visakhapatnam. It provides for their accomodation (short or long), food and health care, counselling, formal, non-formal education and vocational training. The centre has the capacity to accommodate up to 45 children. The centre believes that home care is the best care and tries to integrate the child back into their family. However, in cases where children could not be integrate back into their homes it provides a safe home.
The goal of Manasu Girl Care Centre to ensure a better future for the vulnerable girl child, and also to provide permanent shelter for children where integration with the family is not possible. We work towards ensuring the children get a good education and be able to live independently.
