We work towards realization of Right to Education as a fundamental right for every marginal and vulnerable child; this is a key focus in all our project areas. With a focus on mainstreaming vulnerable and marginalized drop out school children back to regular schools, we work with parents and local schools to ensure that the children go back to school and attend regularly. Through our Education Centers in different states, we provide supplementary support through non-formal education and tuition classes to the children to assist them to improve their performance. Through our computer classes, we equip the children with access to modern technology. We conduct adult literacy classes for women to develop their self-esteem, knowledge base and confidence.
