Children & Education

Children are considered as center of development at household level. The organization extensively conducted motivational and awareness programs for parents on importance of education for their children. Conducted counseling for the parents of drop out children to rejoin their children into schools. As an encouragement, the organization has supported 350 children this year with different educational needs like, note books, school bags, slates and slate pencil boxes as part of school enrollment campaign in Tribal villages of Atmakur and Dornala mandals. Children & Education is kept as a common agenda for discussion in every CBO meeting/forum as it got utmost priority in the development process. Every year we conduct a  dropout children survey in our project villages and organizing school enrollment campaigns. We have undertaken advocacy along with Child Rights Groups for ensuring WASH facilities in schools by submitting representations to concerned Government departments. Facilitated extensive discussions and created awareness on Right to Education Act (RTE Act) at village level and mandal level in our operational districts. Total 265 Tribal children are provided with educational support every year for the past 5 years and they are continuing their education without any interruption. Child marriages are stopped in all the target tribal villages.
