According to several studies it is found that, India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world but in reality, this growth doesn’t commensurate with ever-increasing demands and supply equation. This complex situation has caused due to uneven distribution of wealth, economic slow-down, restricted fund flow and poor performance of banking sector to support market economy concerning development perspective.
On the other hand, inadequate access to basic requirements such as food, shelter, clothing, education and health are often considered underlying causes of poverty, unemployment, illiteracy and poor health amongst majority of the people in the country. This present disparity around poor development indicators is clearly visible in remote rural areas as compared to urban counterpart.
Even, the existing spatial inequality particularly threatens the future of our children and majority of them are being deprived of their basic fundamental rights following vicious cycle of poverty, malnutrition and poor health leading to gender disparity, child labour, early marriage and school drop-out that calls for immediate action.
Having realized these unspoken long sufferings of vulnerable children representing remote rural areas, Anugraha Foundation – an organization is dedicated towards holistic development of deprived children, has decided to address those critical areas creating barrier to overall development of those deprived children with a vision to develop an eco-system where children will not only enjoy their childhood to the fullest but will also become a responsible citizen with demonstrated moral values through learning, playing, sharing and recreational activity through application of various innovative and participatory pedagogy initiatives conducive to ongoing development process.
