Adarsh Foundation is supporting Saath Charitable Trust to run two Balghars in the slum communities of Juhapura area of Ahmedabad. The children in these Balghars come from families of daily wage construction workers. This is a migrating population making it difficult to ensure that a child remains a part of the education system.
The Balghars enrol children between the age groups of 3-6 years, from the community, with an aim to help them get admission in primary school in Standard 1. The Balghars provide holistic development to the children, not only giving them education, but also nutrition and healthcare.
Alongwith this, an awareness about the need for education in the lives of the children, is also created among the parents, as most of the parents in the slum areas are illiterate themselves and unaware of importance of education.
