While progress has been made in improving educational facilities across India, at the grassroots level there are many stumbling blocks that range from inadequate infrastructure, low teacher-pupil ratio and migration of families, amongst others.
We support NGOs working directly at the grassroots level with the economically and socially disadvantaged to make education accessible (covering rural, tribal, urban and semi urban areas) and relevant (often tailor-made to suit the needs and requirements of the community) to as many as possible.
The programmes supported by Concern India Foundation under this category reach out to the rural, semi-rural and urban slum communities to impart structured education to underprivileged children. The programmes work at providing quality education and curb drop-out rates. Education is supplemented or complimented with extracurricular activities for the holistic development of the children. It includes; Pre- school, Formal education, After School Programmes, Digital education, Life Skill Education, Professional Education and Strengthening School Infrastructure.
Special children require special care. We believe in extending our support to the caregivers and those who are working to help them develop to their maximum potential. Special children include those with physical and/or mental challenges, visual, hearing and speech impairment.
