Safety net for poor families in 1,200 slums
  • The rape of a 6 year old girl whose mother was a single, working woman acted as a trigger to set up its first Day Care Centre in 2003 in Karvenagar slum in Pune. Issues addressed: lack of day care centers, education for slum children/school drop outs in slums of Mumbai and Pune. According to UNICEF India has highest number of child labourers under 14 years.
  • Their Vatsalayapurna program runs 21 day care centers for children aged 1-6 years of working slum mothers. The Vidyapurna program awards educational scholarships for deserving children of single mothers from 1st std to 12th std. This helps working mothers to work longer hours and earn more and it allows the older daughters to continue studying since they don't have to look after younger siblings.
  • Outreach: Vatsalayapurna 650 beneficiaries, Vidyapurna 1,181 beneficiaries, VidyaAnnapurna Mahila Mandal's Working Women's Hostel, Vashi 155 beneficiaries and Guest Hostel 66 beneficiaries.
