Provide educational materials and tutorial classes for slum
children so that they can do well in the govt. schools they
attend and not drop out. They will start with 50-75 children
in each slum, for a total of approx. 400 children in the 5 slums.
They will also continue their programs which raise awareness
in the community about the importance of education
To ensure that the children do better inschool
UDAVI is an organization established in 1993 by a
group of 9 dedicated and professional social workers. Their ideology
is to promote overall development for underprivileged sections of
society through education, health, income generation, children, youth,
and women activities, awareness generation, infrastructure development
etc. This is achieved by educating the community and involving them
in their own development.
The project ended because we never got the 6 monthly report from them despite repeated requests. It was not a bad project per se. A site visit is planned to see what happened.
