Support Suman so that her dreams come true!
At 18 years, orphaned and abandoned youth are required by law to move out of institutional care and children's homes. This sudden loss of support often means they have no access to education, face unemployment and are unable to integrate into mainstream society. Udayan Care's After Care programme - under which Suman is - aims to prevent this outcome by providing educational support, vocational training, career guidance and more.
Aftercare programming is the key pillar in the delivery of rehabilitative services for adolescents and young adults in out-of-home care.
Despite her difficult and traumatic background, Suman has become strong and mature with time and is ready to take on any challenge coming her way. She has also gained skills in design and wants to achieve something big as a fashion designer.
Since Suman has already aced the NIFT entrance exams, securing an all India rank of 277, she has got admission to their Navi Mumbai campus and has just started her three-year degree course. The successful completion of this Fundraiser will cover the Rs 2lakh costs of tuition for a year, and another Rs 1lakh for hostel fees - while she continues to receive support and mentorship from UC's After Care programme and her progress is monitored.
WALKING long distances from home to high school has its dangers in rural India - especially for adolescent girls. Help IHMP buy 50 cycles at ₹4,000 each so girls can ride to school, instead of dropping out.
SHARING a dorm with pals can be great fun - until you fall ill, spread the infection and miss school. Baale Mane have planned a sick room for their girls but need funds to equip it with beds, medicines, etc.
THE education system leaves youth ill-equipped to deal with situations beyond the textbook - especially those who enjoy little privilege. Help Medha teach critical life skills to 25 urban poor schoolgoers.
