NGO Profile :
Concerns Universe Foundation (CUF) was established to empower underprivileged children and women residing in the community. CUF works in 20 pockets of urban slums with 5,000 families in Bangalore city.

CUF began with one Childcare Centre in the local slum. Since then, the organisation has been continuously expanding to serve more and more people. Besides education, CUF also focuses on health in the community, working on the prevention of diseases and ensuring that individuals are provided with appropriate medicines and care.

At CUF, thorough need based research is carried out by community workers before floating any project. The following projects are being implemented by CUF social workers:

  • Childcare Centres: CUF currently runs 5 centres in Bangalore. The aim is to identify children who have dropped out of schools and facilitate their return to education, counsel them, provide after-school tuition, extend financial support, and also enable and encourage adolescents to continue their education. The CUF team conducts different activities like summer camps, computer classes, annual sports meet, health awareness sessions, etc. In FY15, CUF conducted 43 parent education sessions, and 995 children were given doses of Vitamin A & polio drops.
  • Concerns Community College: It was started in 2005 for girls who discontinued their education at an early age due to social/financial reasons. The college offers courses on Early Childcare and Office Management. It also offers training in basic computer skills. Women graduating from this college are offered placements too. Out of the 63 students enrolled in June 2014, 14 students completed the course offered in Office Management, Accounting & Computing; 36 completed Early Childhood Care Education.
  • Vocational Training: Vocational skills training is provided to children and unemployed youth through computer application training and stitch craft skills training. The computer curriculum includes MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Typing, Internet, Photoshop, and Tally. 196 students were trained in FY15.
  • Health & Development: This project aims to develop a rapport with community members to educate them on healthy hygiene practices. In FY15, CUF treated 39 tuberculosis patients, imparted women health education to 513 participants, provided post-natal and antenatal care to 316 mothers and 307 pregnant women.
