About the Program

Our proposed program will engage and provide identified children,specially slum,street and orphan children in various activities.These will include Education,Health and Hygiene education,Personality Development,so as to build and provide them an opportunity to develop themselves as the responsible citizen of the country. This will further help them to live into the main stream of society.

We believes education is at the heart of improving the children’s prospects – not just for the children, but for their parents, too. We see it as equally important to engage with their parents and community leaders in the slum area to help them understand the value of education, as a way to help the whole family’s prospects in the long term. Through building relationships with the parents over the past few years, We gained their trust and support, which is critical to ensuring that the children continue to attend school for as long as possible. The first we are in the heart of the slum, and we regularly invite parents to special events at our new schoolroom in a basement nearby.

We also put a strong focus on fun and social skills at the Shrestha school. We celebrate festivals and birthdays with the children, which gives them a lot of happiness, and each school day ends with a session of sports and games, to make sure they always leave with a smile.

Project Needs  

We want  to address the education deprivation among the underprivileged and marginalized community living in the city of Jaipur.

Children in this program come from slum area in the beginning it was not easy to bring them for education the reason is in slum area each family have five to six children and parents have not fix work there earning is not enough. Children want to go school and study but the parents want to send them on work just like begging,shoe polish,garbage collection etc. So lot of talking and field work some are ok to send children for education at our center. And now continuously children come everyday. On this project we are work since 2010.

Volunteers Role

At the project volunteers will help us in various ways such as they can teach the children English, maths and computing, in a friendly and supportive atmosphere, and also assisting in their moral development how they can behave they also do health and hygiene lessons art and craft, wall painting etc. they can prepare some educational games and sports activity for these children overall development.
