Our work with underprivileged children
We work with underprivileged children on their right to education. Under this project, we support non formal education centers for first generation school goers. We also undertake projects to identify school drop outs and help them resolve issues that prevent them from going to schools.
Our work with school going childrenWe work with adolescents in more than 30 schools of Jharkhand. We run several ongoing programs with children of all economic sections of the society on overall development issues.
Target age - 12 to 25 years.
The programs encourage these students to uninhibitedly voice and tackle their concerns by helping them to conceptualize and implement 'personal development' and 'social action' projects.
Our work reaches the community through performing and visual arts, peer education, advocacy, awareness and skill building initiatives.
