May 2023 – Sarthak
Rule #6: We Support Our Community
Sarthak Foundation runs programs for children and young people to make them self-sustainable through education, social-emotional strengthening, and employability skills. 76% of Sarthak’s beneficiaries are girls, who are the most vulnerable to dropping out of education. We continue to support Sarthak and take full care of one of the education centers – The Yellow Room. The Yellow Rooms ensures quality early education to children in the heart of slums all year round. These Yellow Rooms are completely free of cost to the community and are staffed by two full-time Educators and one full-time Program Coordinator.
