Uttaran - Bastar
The objective of this project is to facilitate the process of finding enhanced career opportunities for 150 orphan tribal children who have been affected by the conflict in the region. These children are with us in the residential setting till they finish their schooling. We facilitate vocational training and higher education to college till they are able to fend for themselves. The project provides support to 100 girls in Dantewada and 50 boys in Bijapur who have lost their immediate family and who were presently out of school. It runs in collaboration with Govt. of Chattisgarh, The Paul Hamlyn Foundation and GiveIndia and there are two residential units in South Bastar (Dantewada & Bijapur). Besides being enrolled in nearby Govt. Schools and Kendriya Vidyalaya, children are also receiving the facilities of monthly health camps and regular check up camps organised by competent authorities. Along with these activities, sports and cultural events are also a part of their curriculum so that it improves their self-confidence and enables them to grow as responsible citizens of India.
