The objective of this special evening school was to help provide a better future to rag-picking and wandering street kids from nearby slum areas of Udaipur.
The program aims at providing primary education as well as sense of hygiene to the rag-pickers. They are also given lessons on culture and moral values and then, there is dance and games etc. Besides, the kids are treated to snacks and given some cash daily so that they don't have to do rag picking for their parents.
There is a good strenght of 50 kids attending classes regularly.
The parents of the children are also very happy with the initiative and are all praise for Tara Sansthan for providing the kids such opportunity. They say that the kids have higher level of hygiene awareness even at home and behave very well now.
According to the teachers, the slum dwelling children have lots of hidden talent and abilities to become better citizens, given the right platform. And Tara Sansthan has certainly provided them this much needed platform.
The program started from July the 1st 2016 and the Class, with the strength of 50 children already, operates between 4 to 6 pm, Monday to Saturday.
The Sansthan spends Rs. 500/- per month per student on this program.
All kind- hearted donors are requested to come forward and contribute generously to this noble cause.
