Achievements

Most of the parents in these slums understand the importance of education and want to educate their child, they know that education is the only way to get rid of poverty, however lack of quality schools and expensive cost of education in private schools has unwillingly pushed some of the parents to enrol their children into local municipal schools. Non- enrollment and drop-outs too were a major issue in this area, gender bias was seen among the boys and girls enrolled; several girl students were made to do household chores. Child labourer’s higher ratio was more prominently evident here, as several children were engaged in doing menial jobs to lend a helping hand to their struggling parents. All this was also coupled with several health and hygiene related issues, posing severe threat to the society.
