I Too Want A Safe Environment!
 Saath has been running CHILD FRIENDLY SPACES (CFS) classes for the children of construction workers since 2008 to provide safe environment, informal education with health and nutrition support by running day school/classes at the construction sites. The aim of this project is to provide safe place with supervision for unattended children on sites, create an interest in education with the children, their parents, construction site owners, and enrolling these children to formal school setup giving them better opportunities for their future.  

Tarip a 3 year old came to Ahmedabad with his parents when he was just 3 months. His parents moved Kolkata for better livelihood. It took some time but then they got work on construction site as masons. The site was huge and so do the labour colony. Tarip’s mother would put little Tarip to sleep and look him in the room and then go for work. She would come back after two hours to nurse him and then would look him again. The other option she has was to take little baby on the construction site with was very dangerous for little boy. She would put him near welding or on heaps of cement and which is very dangerous situation for children.

Saath opened its CFS center on the site, initially Tarip’s parents were not confident in sending him to the center. After few meetings with teachers they realized that children were kept in safe environment, where proper nutrition was provided to them with regular health check-ups. Children started learning and showed keen interest in going to formal school.

We appeal you to support Saath in this noble cause and provide safe environment to children at construction site where they have healthy physical and psychological growth. We need Rs 5,00,000 to run one center, which provides education, nutrition, exposure visits, quarterly medical check-ups for 40 children for one year.
