The education ensures the enjoyment of childhood and also provides various positive ways/options for future. If we analysis the details of negative elements/ persons, the basic reason for their negative attitude is emerging from their improper childhood atmosphere. Hence PRERNA is giving highest attention to education of children. PRERNA is regularly and successfully enrolling girls and boys in the Class 10th/12th through National Institute of open school (NIOS).
Educate Me Project
Educate Me project is an International Project, driven to educate children from all over states of India but primarily for Punjab State as the biggest issue confronting by the people, a drugs epidemic that is sweeping the state and famers are committing suicide due to unable to repay the debt hence with the concern to make the Punjab State drugs free, we commenced the project and educating more and more children to direct their energy into education so that every family in Punjab would have enough means to eke out their livelihood.
There are many obstacles and inequalities in access to educate in India; further affecting the entire life of the underprivileged and disadvantaged children, stunting their intellectual development and limiting their employment option. Understanding this, Prerna identified education as one of the powerful tool that could transform the lives of the children and their generation. In the consideration of education, Prerna has designed and implemented the Educate Me Project in 2014 in Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and many other states in North India. Under this project, Prerna provides need based scholarships to underprivileged and disadvantages children who drop their education due to financial crisis or unable to continue education. We observed that scholarship programme has played a key role in building confidence and motivating students to excel in their lives.
We have directed our efforts towards making a transformative impact in the field of Education, community development, health and Disaster response. 2863 students were provided scholarship so far which results significant changes in access quality education and increased number of children enrolled in the school and reduced the number of school dropout children.
