The Hope School: children who are now on the right track!
In the slums of Chittababu, you will find 350 families barely surviving, living in extreme poverty. Consequently, many children do not attend school and must work to help their parents: they pick up waste in landfills for resale, or sell brooms and household chemicals.
Thanks to our partner Kidpower India, the Hope School opened its doors just a few months ago and is already a great success. Indeed, more than 30 children attend this school regularly!
The Hope School aims to be a transitional school, a remedial programme: children learn the fundamentals, in academic instruction and social skills, and then they can reintegrate an appropriate regular school adapted to the child’s needs. To achieve this, social workers do preliminary outreach work with families to bring home how important it is for their children to go to school.
