Program Description

EMSRD designed a Sponsor-A-Child program for the school dropouts children in urban slums of Ghaziabad and Gorakhpur. The parents of the children come from a very poor background and do not have a steady income. The beneficiaries come from the destitute families whose earnings are Rs 3000-4000 per month and they work as rickshaw pullers, auto drivers etc.

The school is situated in the same locality where these children come from for easy access. The eligible beneficiaries are identified through surveys.The school runs both formal and non-formal classes. It also has a computer room and a library. Many times children discontinue school as they cannot afford the cost of uniforms, books and other supplies.

EMSRD provides school supplies to the children to avoid dropouts.A donation to this program can help in re-enrolling a child back into school and save their education.
