Context and Nature of Children’s Vulnerability
Aged between 5 to 12 years, vulnerability of targeted children stems from the following:
- Key male family members are addicted to drugs, alcoholism etc.
- Families mostly earn Rs.5000 or less a month
- Principal occupations include selling old cloths, rag picking, rickshaw pulling, vegetable vending and unorganised labour
- Addiction to drugs results in domestic violence
- Children not enrolled in school
- Lack of learning space at home
- Lack of parental guidance and motivation for learning
- High prevalence of child labour
- Consumption of drugs by children
- Inadequate time and space for recreation
- Non-formal education and mainstreaming in formal school
- Children’s routine and need-based health check up
- Provision for daily supplementary nutrition for children
- Counselling of parents and guardians with focus on childcare and prohibition of child labour
- Extra-curricular activities
Need of Fundraising
HDS has been managing Project ANAND since December 2018 with the help of dedicated volunteers and limited donations. Need of funds is being increasingly felt now, as we plan to strengthen on-going activities and cover more vulnerable children due to demands of families.
Your generous support will help the targeted children gain access to formal education, teach children in a walled premises (now we use open space- a park), and provide children supplementary nutrition, healthcare and recreation. Most significantly, it will help them move away from the evils of drugs and child labour.
- Rs.8500 to provide a vulnerable child all services for one year
- Rs.600 to help a child receive books and educational stationery for one year
- Rs.3600 to help a child receive supplementary nutrition on daily basis for one year
- Rs.600 will help a child receive medicines and healthcare services for one year
Please help us achieve the change that we all wish for our own children.
