Children elementary education

Achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4 – ‘Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all’ – is one of the most important and challenging tasks in international development. In order to fulfil it, we require a better understanding of why progress and the impact of interventions varies so widely by context. One striking gap in our knowledge here is a lack of analysis as to how education systems interact with political contexts that they operate in (Rajya Sabha Passes Child Labour Bill That Allows Work In Family ...19 July 2016 )
The sever lack of supporting facilities is further marred by ever increasing problem of dropouts from the primary level , as well as at the high school level . Which become burning problem and hurdle for promotion of education and making every one educated? At least finishing high school level is taken as basic indicator of success of this initiative. The dropout rate  still hover around 40%, from elementary till 8th grade.
The school dropout is a perpetual problem, that needs innovative intervention,  a composite approach, as this issue, is the manifestation of complex social-economic-political  and cultural  factors.
Mera Parivar, which is involved in promoting foundational education for slum children, has provided basic foundational education to over 5000 children for last 8 years in the Rajiv Nagar slum areas, of Gurgaon ,Haryana.
During the course of working with the slum children , it has also faced the problem of dropouts even at the slum levels, through it provided composite programme for promoting education, nutrition and enrollment for the children in to formal schools.

Looking at the ever increasing problem of drops out , Mera Parivar has made this special initiative to promote re-enrollment of drop out children specially in the slum areas of Rajiv Nagar Gurgaon .

There are many  reasons for dropping out of school . The primary reason is economic situation of the poor and impoverished rural and urban families. They are mostly daily wage earners.  As the parents do not have enough money to meet their basic food need, they cannot think of meeting other social need like education and health care etc. Adding to that they do not feel education will help them addressing their basic needs. They think if one child goes to school, two earning hands are lost. As child labour, the child can earn at least some wage per day.  Rajya Sabha Passes Child Labour Bill That Allows Work In Family ...19 July 2016

Mera Parivar  aims at empowering the youth in the NCR area of India. Most of them migrated from villages to cities in the hope of a good carrier, dropping their studies while being unaware the consequences for their  future carrier opportunities. They urgently need guidance and awareness since without support, they lose time and opportunities are they are not aware of the path to follow to achieve their dreams. Families, often underestimating the importance of education, fail to support them adequately .
