Saakshar School Appeal is a registered charity in the UK - Registered Charity Number 1136311

Saakshar means ‘Literate’!

Supporting VVF’s Saakshar education programme for slum children in SW Delhi.

For children in India’s slums, the absence of education is a life sentence of poverty. In the daily struggle to survive, children’s education is often impossible as illiterate parents working long hours are unable to deal with school applications, and slum children who do start school face many challenges and often drop out. In Delhi, the Saakshar school for slum children is helping them to take the vital first step into education, and then supporting them all the way through their school life. After that it is providing support, mentoring, and invaluable skills training to help get these young people into valuable work. It also supports their families, teaching literacy to parents and providing training courses in computing and dressmaking to those who can use them.
