We have partnered with Child In Need Institute (formerly CINI-Asha), a reputed NGO to improve lives of the urban marginalised population, through education, health and social mobilisation. We are working with CINI for the last seven years to run a project called 'Lighting Up Young Lives - Improving Child Health Outcomes Through Community Participation'.
This project's primary objective is to ensure proper growth and development of slum children up to six years of age through various need-based initiatives.
A trained adolescent girl is responsible to impart stimulation to 12 children within her community.
This ensures their proper physical, cognitive, language and socio-emotional development. Adolescents engaged with this programme were not only empowered with life skills training, but the incentive provided to them helped them complete their higher education.
