Work and Achievements
Save The Children India is a non-profit organization established in 1988, committed to nurture, educate and guide the growth of vulnerable children. Our interventions have impacted over 2 Lacs lives till date. Our direct implementation is in the states of Maharashtra and Delhi and our Policy Advocacy is pan India.
Our Delhi Chapter: We started our Delhi Chapter in 2004 with the objective of empowering women and children in the urban villages of Delhi – NCR. These villages of Delhi-NCR, which largely comprise migrant population, are deprived in multiple ways; these include a lack of education and employment opportunities, little/no social cohesion and social protection, leading to violent, unhealthy environments. The main burden of these deprivations falls on women and children, especially the girl child. Their education, employment and health statuses are particularly bad in relation to men and often violence against them is ignored, belittled or validated.
What we do: Our aim is to enable and collectivize women, children and their communities, so that they can live lives free of violence and poverty. Therefore, we implement need-based programs on:
1. Quality Education
Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE)
2. Women empowerment and Child-protection
Legal Literacy and Legal Help
People’s Collectives and Awareness Generation
3. Vocational Education
