COVID-19 has made an unprecedented harshness in human history that requires humanity save itself as a single family. Situation is such now that we need to share our bread with the other.
CHALLENGE: The present crisis threatens everyone's life, but it has devastated the lives of the poor who are already vulnerable living in extreme poverty. India is still registering a high per day COVID-19 infections. Survival itself is threatening the poor children now. We work among the most neglected and ignored indigenous and dalit communities in Kurnool district - the most chronic drought hit district s in Andhra Pradesh. Due to severe and continuous droughts, children are the victims of child labourers, child marriages and human trafficking.
In our working with the communities for the last 2 years, we could rescue 167 child labourers and started giving literacy crash courses after which they will be mainstreamed with regular schooling.
COVID-19 lock down has pushed the poorest families into extreme poverty due to lack of daily wage labours, on which they have been depending on. Now, survival itself has become a threat to the children and their families.
This project comes with two definite impacts: 1. The poor children get healthy food and escape malnutrition. A healthy kid ensures healthy community 2. By continuing the crash courses/ literacy centers, we put an end to child labourers. This project ensures educated generation. The project breaks chronic poverty. A healthy community is the result. We will recognize every volunteer with a special recognition certificate.

PROGRAMS: Vocational Skills Training and Functional Literacy to illiterate women and adolescents youth. Women and youth are trained in everyday Maths, understand the bus route sign boards, newspapers. Since the target women are daily wage labourers, it is imperative that they are able to count their own wages.
