School Kit Drive, an initiative by Youth for Seva to ensure that every child attends school with dignity.
Objective: To encourage every child to take first step towards school.
School Kit: The Scholl Kit consists of a school bag, notebooks and stationery materials like geometry box, pen, pencil, eraser sharpener and ruler.
The Need: 40% of India’s population is below 18 years (children), Less than half of the children go to school. And only 1/3 reach to Grade 8, Children dropping out of schools are a common sight. Children drop out of schools owing to limited financial means, lack of access to school materials & parents’ indifference towards education
Program Goal: In an attempt to combat this challenge, YFS initiated the School Kit Sponsorship, a program designed to ensure that basic school supplies reach even the remotest parts of a few states across India. With contributions from donors, we enable children to attend the school.
Reach out 2018: Last year around 48200+ children benefitted by this program. School authorities have noted an increase in student enrolment and we hope to maintain that momentum. This year we are planning to reach 60000+ Kits.
