Free Education, Food and Shelter to Underprivileged Children
VKF is working to make fundamental changes in the lives and thoughts of underprivileged children in Gujarat by providing them with free education, with the hope that they will in turn upgrade their families and society. It started with 18 children from poor families of earthquake affected regions of Gujarat.
Programs: VKF manages a Parentage Home that provides free education support, food, lodging and boarding facilities to underprivileged children. Every year, 10 children from deprived families gain admission at the age of 5 years and stay at this Home till they complete Std XII. VKF also provides medical aid, counselling sessions, academic supervision, guidance and frequent parent-child interaction.
Outcome: So far, 14 beneficiaries have completed formal education and are pursuing professional courses or college education of their choice like Chartered Accountancy, Engineering and Fine Arts. Currently, the program covers more than 95 students. 13 schools have partnered with VKF and are giving admission to the beneficiaries into their schools.
