Underprivileged children from Tamluk, Kolaghat and municipal areas of Haldia, West Bengal, are directly benefitted under this Mission Education project, which is benefitting over 300 children between the age group of 6 and 10 years.Along with education, learning material and nutrition-rich food are provided to the children.
The families in the targeted areas mainly comprise of daily wage earners who work in fields, shops and as domestic aids. With meager incomes, parents are hardly able to meet even the basic needs of the family.Providing education, as a result, to their children is quite a challenge for them. Through this project, the community has been sensitized and within a short span of time, a good number of children have been enrolled in the education centres operational under the project.
Trained and experienced teachers are employed, besides committed volunteers who walk the extra mile to make learning fun and easy for the kids. Upon completion of the non-formal education of the children, the project works for mainstreaming them in local private and government schools.
Smile Foundation has partnered with Midnapore Association for Voluntary Action for this project.
