Empowering underprivileged through education
To endow quality education to underprivileged children dwelling in the urban slums of Bangalore city is the main objective of this Mission Education project. The beneficiaries are mostly people from slum communities who because of ignorance are unable to live a self- sustainable life.
The project aims at creating awareness within the community people, inspiring families towards education, generating health and hygiene awareness, empowering women groups and thus raising the standard of living of the community people. Children from socially and economically weaker sections of the society between the age group of 4-17 years are targeted under this project. With special focus on education, this project accelerates overall development of children in different aspects of their personality.
Under the project, the children are enrolled in a formal educational setup. The centre boasts of a sound infrastructure with children studying from LKG to Class X. The project aims at encouraging people to educate their children and giving them an opportunity to explore their hidden talents. Children are provided counseling sessions to improve their career prospects. They are also encouraged, motivated and supported to pursue higher studies.
Smile Foundation implements this project with Nava Karnataka Social Service Trust.
