The Government of India provides free access to education to the children belonging to the lower strata of the society. Still, there are lakhs of children who do not make it to the schools. Labour work and begging remain to be the primary causes. To support their parents and generate income for the family, these children stop going to school and start working. It is our responsibility to make these children and their parents conscious of the importance of education. And as a part of society, you can provide education to those children who do not have access to schools through an initiative, "Pathanshaala" by Ladli Foundation.
Pathanshaala, an initiative to provide basic education to street children, ragpickers & child beggars at Red-Light Crossings & Slums. We envision to spread awareness and motivate families by doing various fun activities, and reward-based competitions to develop an interest in studies with an aim to let kids continue their further education in the schools.
Under this initiative, Ladli provides access to primary education through online classes in slum areas. We also provide study material, meals along with toys to seek attention and encourage participation. We not only aspire to educate the children but also motivate their parents. Occasionally, there are specially designed workshops on sexual abuse to sensitize children and families about the harsh realities of the society.
