Pratham

Educational support for marginalized children

Vision

That children in red light areas gain academic, vocational and life skills leading them to fulfil their dreams and become positive contributors to society.

Project Pratham attempts to break the cycle of poverty by providing early childhood education, supplementary education and care through education centres to children who live in marginalised communities across Mumbai and its outskirts.

Currently we have three education centres in Chaphewadi village; and in the Ghatkopar and Turbhe red light areas.

Sahaara aims to provide educational support for the children who live in these communities so that they will be able to pursue an education, be trained in a skill and become employable thus ensuring that they have a chance at a brighter future!

184 children were served through the Pratham project.
