Shabnam, Mubirshira and Khalid live in the Fatehwadi area of Juhapura with their parents. Due to poor financial condition they could not continue their studies. To support her family Mubirshira started maid work at a nearby bungalow along with her mother and her brother – sister also started to work at a nearby local store packing food materials. They came into contact of Saath’s field worker and they narrated their story to them. Field worker then met their mother and convinced her to send them to CFS center. Finally she agreed to send them to the CFS center.  All of them were dropouts so CFS centre teacher took initiative and met nearby School’s Principal and tried to convince him to enroll them into School’s STP course.  Principal finally agreed and they were enrolled into STP course.  After completing STP course Shabnam and Khalid got admitted to 2nd standard and Mubirshira was admitted in 3rd standard.“We love to go to the school because teachers are very good and we have made lots of friend here”, says Mubirshira.

World Day Against Child Labour

Today 12th June Saath is observing “World Day Against Child Labour” and theme for this year is “No to Child Labour in Domestic Work”.

Child Labours Day-12-6-13-2

Saath has been addressing the issue of child labour through its ‘Child Friendly Spaces‘ (CFS) programme.

The aim of CFS programme is to enroll the children into Formal Education system. CFS centers focus on child labours and provide four hours of informal education and nutrition support to them. At present we have 7 CFS centres, 3 in slums and 4 on construction sites.  474 children have been enrolled in our classes and 40 children have been enrolled back in school through CFS programme.

Help Saath in bringing children out of labour.

India Tax Saving Challenge 2012

Like last year, Give India organizes a Tax Challenge event. This online giving event is held from February 21 till March 22, 2012. As the 31st of March is the  deadline for filing tax returns in India, now is the time to donate!

What’s in it for us?
The top 3 of NGOs that raise most funds, will receive a matching grant. In addition there will be daily and weekly surprise grants worth up to 16 lakhs in total!

What’s in it for you?
Indian citizens will receive 100% tax deduction for donations in favour of our organization, as Saath is listed u/s 35 AC of the Income Tax bill.

What’s in it for the community?
The stories on this blog provide you an overview of the kind of work we do. Your donation will support inclusive development in urban and rural areas. Saath is an organization by the community for the community. We initiate, develop and implement programmes that are working towards the employability of youth, getting children out of labour and into school, supplementing nutrition for under nourished children in slums, subsidising a child’s higher education, giving families an opportunity to sustainable livelihoods.

To give you an example: Rs. 500,- provides a healthy meal a day for a child labourer for two months.
