This project targets 10 urban slums and 60 villages in Nagpur. In these slums and villages women, girls and children live in difficult conditions and are extremely disadvantaged. Many parents in these slums earn a daily pittance which means they cannot prioritise their children’s education.
To make things worse, some have addiction problems. They live in tiny dwellings which makes it impossible for their children to study and children from these slums and villages perform poorly at school.
Our partner, the Samata Mahila Society aims to empower women, girls and children living in this impoverished environment. The project makes interventions in the early years, focusing on children aged 5-16. It also provides community support programmes and self-help groups.
