Changing life through Education Education is the single most important factor to ensure gender equality and empowerment. As per 2011 census 1 in 4 children of school-going age is out of school in our country 99 million children in total have dropped out of school. The question comes to mind that where such children going after drop out? The answer lies in 2011 census report which shows that there are 10.13 million child labourers between 5-14 years in India. As per NCRB 2016 report, every day, around 150 children go missing in India – kidnapping and abduction is the largest crime against children in our country. We have more than 45 lakh girls under 15 years of age who are married with children. Out of these, 70% of the girls have two children (Census 2011). In many states, school is free, but there are additional costs for uniforms, books and transportation, especially in rural areas, where a student may walk more than an hour each way by public road or by bus to school. The expenses may be too much for a family to pay, on top of the money the family loses by not sending a child to work or even marrying off a daughter. These all factors required to be addressed to provide education to each child in India.PROJECT CONTENT
