Project Ashakiran (Ray of Hope)

September 24, 2012 at 6:35 pm

This is a schooling project which is run at 3 different locations. The main objective of this project is to provide free education for artisans children. Approximately 220 children are being educated under this project. Around US$ 10000 are spent yearly on this project. The main purpose of this school/project is to educate children at a younger age so that they can receive basic skills like reading and writing. There is a vast economic disparity within the income brackets in India, which creates a roadblock for many young children to get the necessary and or basic education needed to help develop their future. This often leads these children to be classified as “burdens”, through our project we want young children to get the basic education so that they can manage to stand up on their feet. This also encourages poor families to send their young girls to school and keep them away from child labor and prostitution. We hope to develop a hunger for education in these young children attitude.
