Children Education

Context of the Project:

This project will address needs of 250 flood victim children in 125 families in 5 coastal communities, Nellore district, India; of whom 60 children are below fives, 123 children are attending school and 67 children are drop outs and living in poverty and unhygienic conditions. The project will support these children with motivation, education, health and child needs.

Projected achievements through this project:

Long term: We will support flood victim children in 5 communities for 4 years. To help to complete 1 to 5 classes in their own village schools and 6 to 7 classes in schools in panchayat schools. We will reduce the dropout numbers and check on child fish traders on sea waters. We will strive to protect their rights and interests for a memorable childhood and responsible adulthood.

We need financial resources to support children to get quality education by admitting children in good schools. In village communities we have schools only from 1 to 5 classes. For 6 class and above they need to join schools in panchayats/ mandal centers or Indukurpet or big towns where they can study till class 10 and continue further studies. As parents live on daily fish catch with 2 dollars worth a day its difficult to educate children besides meeting family needs. Children at tender age are pulled to the sea waters than to schools. If good donors like you come forward to support these deserving children with student sponsorship, these poor children both boys and girls will sure to get good education and strive for a better future.

Who Will Benefit from the Project 

Persons to be benefited directly and indirectly from the project activities:

Total villages: 5 coastal flood affected communities will be benefited. 

Total families: 25 families in each community will be indirectly benefited.

Children beneficiaries: 2 children from each family will be directly benefited. 

25 families X 2 children X 5 villages = 250 children

(handicapped children included = 12 children)

Total Children = 250
