While education is a fundamental right, it remains a distant dream for many children in India. For families that live in extreme poverty, sending their children to school is an expensive affair. Attending government schools is also difficult as they have to pay for books, uniforms, and transportation. Parents who have not experienced the benefits that come along with education such as an increase in earnings and quality of life don't know what they are missing out on by pulling their children out of school. They prefer to send them for work or get them married. This is why it is a cycle. Children who grow up without education are less likely to send their children to school.
There is an urgent need to provide remedial classes to bring these children into the light of education.
THE VIDHYA INITIATIVE
YATAN, an NGO based in Gurgaon is committed to providing after-school remedial programs for underprivileged children through the 'VIDHYA' initiative. This will help children cope with their studies which they missed in the past year. These are underprivileged children who are enrolled in government schools (Grades 1-12). Community-based cluster classes are conducted in Lucknow and Gurgaon.
The students are provided with free education, stationery, books, and mid-day meals. This helps give them a bright future and get their families out of the vicious circle of poverty that plagued them for generations. This is being done in partnership with the NGO Yatan. The NGO has already educated 5000+ children in the last 7 years in Lucknow and Gurgaon and has given them a fresh lease of life.
IT COSTS JUST INR 9300 TO SUPPORT ONE CHILD FOR A YEAR.
ALL FUNDING HAS 80G BENEFITS.
My name is DISHA AGARWWAL. I am 17 years old and a Grade 12 student at the K.R. Mangalam World School, Gurgaon
I have undertaken this campaign because I think it is incredible to impact the life of a child by supporting their education.
Yatan Education Centre provides after-school remedial programs and brings these children into the light of education. The NGO also provides a meal, education, books, etc for free making it impossible for parents NOT to send children to study. This will also help bring their families out of the vicious circle of poverty that plagued them for generations. The cost of providing after-school programs to a child for a year is just INR 9300 and will completely transform their lives.
Please support my campaign as a simple act of kindness can have a profound impact on a child's life. Let us together lend a helping hand and support these children.
