    Kalam Center

    from Hyderabad, Telangana

The Situation:
More than one-third of the Hyderabad’s population lives in slums.
1,179 slums have been identified by by GHMC officially.
Slums continue to grow at a rate of 6.06% per annum.
Primary sources of livelihood includes housekeeping, autorickshaws, blue collar work and street vending.

The Children:
Congested habitations and living conditions make academic excellence a challenge.
Education is discontinued at a young age for most children due to financial constraints and safety concerns.
These kids are involved in household chores, child labor, child marriages.

What we do:
Holistic development of lesser-privileged children. Courses are offered in: Academics, Self-defense, Vocational Training and Personality Development. Special focus is laid on: Health and hygiene, Nutrition awareness, career counseling and extra curriculum activities.

The Process:
TKF volunteers visit recognized slum areas, and identify student groups from Govt. schools. Mentors are identified from the same slum, and employed. A “Kalam Centre” is established in a local hall or study space. Mentors provide after-school support to the students for 2 hours per day. Each centre consists of around 25 kids. Attendance is recorded everyday.
