Under the project, non-formal literacy-cum-life education is provided for high school dropouts. These children were unable to attend school due to poverty and the need for them to work in order to add to the family income.
Classes are now being held for 2 to 3 hours every day at times convenient to the children. Books and other necessary material is also provided. The project emphasizes on cultural skills like music, drama, dance, etc in addition to necesary reading and writing skills. The goal is to motivate the children and help them to develop their talents and interests.
