We propose to start an educational center for basic literacy of tribal children. The poor illiterate tribal parents in our project area cannot fulfill the basic needs of their children and do not want to send their children to the school. We propose to establish one pre primary school for the kids within the age group of 3 to 6 years. The children will be provided with basic education. We will run this program for providing those poor children a steppingstone of education by a compulsory schooling in the pre-primary level and prepare them for admission in the primary level formal schools. We have also planned to utilize the same school as an adult literacy center preferably for the parents of those selected children. Elementary education will be provided.
