With a broader goal of ensuring that every child achieves her/his potential in a healthy, poverty free and protective environment, FXB India Suraksha (FXBIS') is working towards ensuring that all children in FXBIS program areas have access to quality education. With this objective, FXBIS is reaching out to the children in remote and neglected areas (rural and urban slum) through different services like Suraksha Education Centres for slow learners, providing quality computer trainings, vocational training centres and financial aid through the Suraksha Sponsorship Programme.
While working with the marginalized communities that include People living with HIV Aids, tribals, Dalits, and slum dwellers, one of the major constraints to education in our experience, that led to high rate of school drop out after class VI is the inability to pay for the school fees. It is observed that in spite of willingness of the child and the parent to continue education, children do not finish their schooling simply because families are not able to pay the school fees or take care of the school supplies. Thus, Suraksha Sponsorship Programme was initiated to assist such children to finish their schooling till at least till class 10 and further support meritorious students to complete class 12.
The objective of the programme is to reach out to the children in remote and neglected areas (rural and urban slum) and ensuring every child in FXBIS programme areas complete and access quality education.
So far, 45 children from HIV AIDS affected/infected families in Manipur in North east India and Andhra Pradesh in South India are being provided support in terms of tuition fees and educational materials.
"Though the 'Suraksha Sponsorship Programme', I look up to fulfilling my dream of becoming a doctor and fight against the menace of illicit drug trafficking and abuse in my home state, Manipur, says Laishram Jemika, a young girl from Thongju, Manipur. Jemika lost her father due to drug abuse and HIV and thought that she couldn't continue her studies further. Read her story here...
