The aim of the project is to remove poverty and ignorance from among the children and engage them in a more organized way so that they have access to the benefits of modern development.

It is proposed to do the following:
-To set up 20 non-formal education centers for children in the age group of 6-14 years.
-The project is aimed towards the younger generation that need education but do not have access to the basic infrastructure.
-These education centers aim for total literacy in the mentioned age group.
-To move the children to a primary school (which they run themselves) once the non-formal education is completed and later to a higher secondary school.
