Working among the neglected and ignored indigenous and dalit communities in Kurnool district - one of the chronic drought hit districts, in Andhra Pradesh, stands second highest in human trafficking and registered high ratio school dropouts.
CHALLENGES: Chronic poverty, child labourers, human trafficking.
We aspire to eradicate poverty and hunger principally in rural areas, which account for 68% of the total population of India. Poverty is the source of many social evils such as child labor, human trafficking, illiteracy, human rights violations and famine. NCT concentrates on the socio-economic Empowerment of women and adolescents, Health and Education to Children as a proven way to promote gender equality and to eradicate poverty.
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.
Illiterate /school dropped outs/ child labours are given crash literacy courses and then we mainstream them with nearby government schools. NewBeginnings creates Rights awareness on Gender Equality, Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights and Menstrual Hygiene and Personal Health Care
