EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Thousasnd of kids fending for themselves on city's roads of Siliguri

Want to help the children worst affected by the plight of poverty? This program is for you children on the street and school dropout!

Among the poorest inhabitants of India’s cities are families living in tent communities. Severely lacking basic necessities and resources, their children take to the streets.

Despite enormous investment in education reform, the achievement gap between children living in poverty and their higher-income peers persists, threatening their economic security and that of our North Bengal. 

Thousand of all children in North Bengal live in poverty. We know the magnitude of these issues cannot not be solved by a single organization; rather it takes schools, community-based organizations, and others working together to drive change at an accelerated rate. Given our foundation’s mission of transforming the lives of children living in poverty through a better education, it is vital to help provide a level playing field with urgency. Until the entire system can be improved, we need to provide children with the tools to be confident in their abilities to be academically successful, thereby breaking the cycle of poverty for them and their families.

Statistic show why education is perhaps the most effective strategy to tackle poverty and is integrally linked to human, community and national development. When people have basic life and literacy skills, economies grow more quickly and poverty rates decline. Children who have the opportunity to learn are able to eventually earn more money and support their own families.

UNESCO: 47 million youth in India drop out of school by 10th standard

India has 47 million youth of secondary and higher secondary school-going age dropping out of school, according to a report by the Montreal-based UNESCO Institute for Statistics and Global Education Monitoring.

The 47 million young men and women dropped out of school by the 10th standard, according to the 2016 report.The enrollment in class 10 is 77 percent, but enrollment in class 11 is only 52 per cent, according to a report from the New Delhi-based Institute for Policy Research Studies (PRS).

Despite this increase, six million children aged 6-13 are estimated to be still out of the school system, according to a 2014 survey by the Ministry of Human Resource Development.

That is why Swami Vivekananda International Residential School is so important – and why MUKHOPADHYAY FOUNDATION and its partners place such great emphasis – on supporting street, underprivileged and school dropout children at every stage of the educational journey.  Investing in the cycle of  education, pictured below, is one of the most effective ways to break the cycle of poverty.  Even simple things – like a school uniform or offering breakfast in schools – can be enough to increase a community’s overall educational retention and graduation rates.
