Hello Everyone, I am Saloni, 1st-year student of Motilal Nehru College, DU. As an intern in TODAY'S KALAM FOUNDATION, we are raising funds for the benefit of 25 slum kids. Please contribute, share and please send the screenshot of payment as a proof.
The Situation: More than one-third of Hyderabad’s population lives in slums 1179 slums have been identified by GHMC officially. Slums continue to grow at a rate of 6.06% per annum. Primary sources of livelihood include housekeeping, autorickshaws, blue-collared 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 DevelopmentSpecial 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.
