Help Surjeet for upliftment of 1000 underprivileged slum children

Surjeet Singh Founder and President of CEHRO INDIA basically belonged from Kanpur Dehat. He is an NSITian graduated engineer in the year 2011. After completion of his  bachelor degree he choose to began his journey as a social worker in the year 2012 as he firmly believed that social equality and  education are the basic rights of every children. So he started to work especially, for the migrated workers along with their children residing in Munirka Village and nearby slums areas. The most shocking part which he learnt from his observation and experience, is that either most of the children in his covered areas do not go to school or else, there are high dropout rates among them which eventually, forced the children to work in inhuman conditions for the sake of earning. If the lives of same age group belonging to both slum areas and those belonging to well-off families are to be compared, we can measure the huge difference lying between the living conditions of both. The first thing came into his mind is that, we can’t help if someone is born rich or poor but, we can contribute our part to transform the lives of those who are being denied of basic amenities. Since then, Surjeet changed his mind and became a social worker and thus, started to work for the underprivileged children for the betterment of their future.

CEHRO was started with 50 children in 2012 which gradually, increased to 315 children with an aim towards improving the quality of learning(education) and health related facilities of the underprivileged children and dropouts from low-income communities whose parents worked as daily wage earners, sanitation workers, rag pickers, domestic cook, etc., so that children can complete their school education and pursue better career options  in the coming future.
Currently CEHRO operates two education learning centres in Munirka village and also supporting nearby slum areas such as  Ekta Vihar, Sonia Camp in R.K. Puram and Singhi Basti, Arjun Camp of Mahipalpur, New Delhi.

CEHRO believes in the “empowering” effect of education. So, in order to provide quality education, we somehow managed to bring these children to our centre because talking directly about studying is a futile exercise. So, as to make them studying, some of the activities according to their interest are being taught in our centre. The moment they started enjoying these activities, we asked them to study as well. Thus, for the sake of their favorite activities, children started gaining some sort of interest in studies also.
In the two centres, along with education, extra-curricular activities like music, dancing, painting, drama, poetry along with art & craft are being taught especially, Quilling which encouraged the children to learn something new to form a vital part of the curriculum. Needless to say, our students enjoy these classes immensely.  
Apart from classroom activities, all the depicting our culture and tradition are also celebrated. The purpose of such celebrations is to inculcate the value of unity among the children. Apart from building relationship and friendship, such celebrations bring happiness and love amongst the children. We are also helping poor parents as they are relieved from the onus of paying high costs to private tuition as they have limited resources. Now children of CEHRO INDIA are spending more time in studies & meaningful activities instead of, getting involved in futile activities in their spare time which involves roaming unnecessarily in the market areas, acquiring bad habits like cigarette smoking, intake of drugs, alcohol etc. Many Educational Trips, Workshops and Picnics are being organized from time to time. We also provide clothes and shoes to the children.

Why do we need funds?
Funds and resources are very essential for CEHRO to be able to support our disadvantaged children of slums and also to support 1000 such more disadvantaged children living in Munirka and the nearby slum areas who wants to join us for their better future. We are struggling because
CEHRO aims at providing education and nutritious food to all these children of slum areas. We also organize health camps for them once in 3 months so that their basic health can be monitored.
With your support, we will be able to get these children good teachers so that their education won’t be compromised. For getting good education, one has to be with full stomach. So with your contribution CEHRO will be able to provide variety of nutritious food.
The other basic necessity which you can fulfill is clothes. Most of the children here don’t have adequate amount of clothes on their skin. So we are trying to give them proper clothes (summer & winter both) and shoes.

Education trips are becoming important for these children as these are the times when they interact with the people beyond their circle. So with your support we will be giving them more reasons to gain confidence.

We provide free education and health service to the children. Free medical camps are also being organized for children once in 3 months. Now, our aim is to focus on the educational and healthcare needs of more 1000 children living in Munirka and nearby slums. We hope that you will contribute by becoming a part of our passionate journey and also be instrumental in bringing change in the lives of these children along with many more, who needs our help and support to make their dreams come true….

Why do you support us?
Your generous support and kind contributions for our humanitarian and social causes could support our efforts to make slum improvement programmes more child-friendly. With your support, CEHRO will be able to make a huge difference in the lives of thousands of underprivileged children along with their overall development through our ongoing programmes. Presently, with our limited resources, we cannot translate our dreams of empowering society.

Achievements
  • We have started from 50 children and now we are able to touch the lives of 315 children.
  • Under the Spoken English programme, by TEACH INDIA we are able to provide employment to 137 children. Now these children are supporting their families financially also.
  • Earlier, parents were not taking interest in their child education but now they are taking interest and even attending PTMs and SMCs. Parents are not just getting involved in education but also showing interest in their extra-curricular activities.
  • We are able to see drastic change in the children’s personality. Before, these children were not able to speak in public or were not confident enough to share even what they like. But now, they feel more confident and do not hesitate to share whatever comes in their mind.
  • In 2018 Rajkiya entrance out of 7 students from CEHRO, 5 students got selected Divyanshu, Jiya, Ravi,,Drishti, Dev, and Divyanshu Pandey got the first rank in the entrance exam.
  • Devika Adhikari who was with CEHRO for three years has cleared the highly competitive Vidyagyan examination and got a fellowship for further studies. Vidyagyan is a talent search programme from Shiv Nadar foundation which selects 200 underprivileged students every year from all over India and sponsors their education class VI onwards.
  •  Mezbeen, an underprivileged girl, who was with CEHRO for three years who has beaten all the odds to secure 93.6% in the CBSE 10th board result.
  • Initially, when asked a question “Who Do You Want to Become?” they were not able to answer as they were not able to see any role model in their life. But now, when they have started to explore different areas or meeting different people they have started to see role models and also bit confident to answer previous question.
  • Initially, quilling was started for the interest of the children but eventually, children started working on it seriously and carved out beautiful products and now, we are being marketing them on the different platforms with the help of children.

“Inside every child is a rainbow waiting to shine.”

One such rainbow is Pihu, a seven year old girl who lost her parents in an accident while travelling to Haridwar and isn’t aware about it. Pihu lives with her maternal grandparents in Munirka Village, New Delhi and has been a part of the CEHRO family for a year now. She likes to learn Hindi and to colour. She says that she loves to be here at CEHRO as she can do things which she likes the most.


Pihu is very determined who loves to study and aims to become a doctor someday. But this dream seems to look next to impossible because of the absence of her birth certificate and important documents, due to which she doesn’t have any Identity Proof. This is a major obstacle between her love for studies and getting proper education in a school.

Just like Pihu, there are a lot of other children who are deprived of basic social rights and education and need your support.

CEHRO INDIA is reaching out to you in order to gain support for such children by raising
