Education

chi_education1Children’s Hope India believes that every child should be able to get quality education, a central guiding principle of our work. We take a “cradle to career” approach—providing the foundation, at a young age, upon which children can build a brighter future and realize their potential.

From non-formal education in crèches and balwadis to formal high school education, we help them stay on track.  The drop-out rate for children, especially girls from marginalized communities, is over 60%, so we intervene with remedial education, counseling and financial support, as needed.  Through college scholarships and other job skills training programs, we empower children and young adults to grow, learn, and become financially independent in a rapidly changing world.

While India can claim improvements in recent years in terms of enrollment in its schools, girls are still underrepresented, proportionally. A key focus for Children’s Hope India is creating an equal playing field so that girls have the same opportunities to go to school as boys. We also place great importance on extracurricular activities and remedial classes.

Many smart, highly motivated children that attend school are not able to afford college, and their dreams are left unrealized. But Children’s Hope India is doing its small part by partnering with organizations and institutions—from Delhi to Kolkata—in supporting scholarships that cover tuition and other costs. As a result, promising students can get a higher education and pursue their passions. We believe we are helping to cultivate tomorrow’s great minds and leaders.

We have seen many success stories. Using a variety of approaches, the projects we support have enabled children in India and in the United States to grow up to become doctors, nurses, engineers, teachers, social workers, accountants, and officers of the Indian Air Force.
