Education plays a significant role in eradicating poverty and achieving the aim of universal primary education and adult literacy. Abandoned and underprivileged children often lack the opportunity to have basic education which is their right. Your support will help the children studying in HOPE foundation Matriculation High School become well educated, responsible and contributing citizens of the country and free themselves from poverty and live a dignified life.
Less than half of India’s 400 million children between the age 6 and 14 go to school. A little over one-third of all children who enroll in grade one reach grade eight. At least 35 million children aged 6 – 14 years do not attend school, and 53% of girls in the age group of 5 to 9 years are illiterate. By providing digitally equipped, free education, you will help the children realise their self worth and to stand at par with the students of private school.
