Situation

Scholarships: It is a common fact in India that the burden of poverty falls particularly heavily on girls. If parents cannot afford to send all their children to school, it's the girls who usually lose out. For girls from poor families who somehow manage to pass Class Ten (GCSEs), there are almost no opportunities for them to study further. Homes: Almost 9.2% of Indian children are in need of a stable home. 35 million are orphans, 30 million live in shelters and 35 million are on the streets.

Solution

Scholarships: Girls from underprivileged homes are put through a structured academic programme integrated with a financial incentive package, which enables them to achieve a degree, sometimes even a post graduate degree. The programme also includes mentoring and personal development. Homes: The LIFE Udayan Ghars (homes) focus on long term residential care for orphaned and abandoned children, reflecting a family unit and providing essential security, love, and support for each child.
