To facilitate a better learning ecosystem for children in government homes through the Sahaara Remedial Education; and training & equipping of Home staff, so that the children gain academic and life skills leading them to fulfil their dreams.
The Indian government has established its network of childcare institutions to take care of children who are in need of care and protection (CNCP). These children are vulnerable for a variety of reasons such as being orphaned, lost, runaways or victims of child labour, trafficking or abuse.
These children enter the government child care institutions at varying ages, possess differing backgrounds and experiences, and are equipped with skill sets and competencies that are rarely common. However, despite the lack of commonality, the children are placed in a one-size-fits-all educational program known as the municipal school, where they struggle to develop grade-level competency.
As a result, they face educational challenges, identity crisis, emotional stress and behavioural issues arising from their weak performance in school. They also run the risk of becoming delinquent as they are bogged by a sense of failure, which leads to irritation and rebellious behaviour.
Project Pragati’s vision is to facilitate a better and sustainable learning ecosystem for children in government child care institutions and ensure strong educational foundations through remedial education, mental wellness, career enhancement and institutional strengthening interventions.
