SAMARTH is a two-year program focusing on development in terms of education, vocational skills and life skills of the adolescents of the oppressed community.
Every teen wants to go to school, to play and to learn. But the financial crisis of the family curbs their dream. The parent in such situation has two option, either he will send the teen to earn livelihood or the teen will take care of the house and the other member of the family will go to earn the livelihood. In both the cases the teen is deprived of their right to education.
Hence SAMRATH is born. We will provide them an opportunity to break free from this vicious cycle. We will support the teen as well as their family. We will provide them with education and vocational skills. Also, SAMARTH will give stipend to the family of the teen.
SAMARTH will identify 10 boys and girls from the school and community and will transform their personality in terms of academic and individuality. The ultimate outcome will be that the child will be equipped with vocational as well as life skills that will help them to meet challenges. The program will identify such teens that want to study further but their families can’t afford to finance their studies. As a part of the SAMARTH every student will voluntarily devote 3 hours per week towards societal development. In this way teens will also learn the concept of how to give back to the society.
Through SAMARTH we will be able to produce a responsible adult who in-turn will contribute towards the development of the Maliya Nagar,Indore. In future, these teens will act as agents of change in the oppressed community.
