THE Educate A Child programme concentrates on children aged from 5 to 16 years in deprived urban areas. It focuses on getting children into education and keeping them there. Street children, children without parents, children of sex workers and children from the slums need to have an environment conducive to learning. CINI support their education with school fees, uniforms and educational materials on need basis, which costs ₹4,000 a year for a child.
THIS project concentrates on the mother's nine months of pregnancy and the first two years of her child’s life when nutrition is particularly critical. CINI believe that the most effective way to give a child born into a poor family the best possible start in life is through the mother. This 1,000 days of support, which includes nutritional advice, ante and post-natal care, and improved access to government facilities like hospitals for deliveries and vaccination programmes, cost ₹15,000.
One of the best ways to fight stigma and empower HIV positive people is by speaking out openly and honestly about who I am and what I experienced... and this is the strength I got from this session conducted by CINI.
What would have happened if this CINI Drop In-Centre was not there? We would have gotten married early. We would not have come to know about so many things.
CINI has taught me how to value things in life, try and find happiness in the smallest of the things and being grateful for whatever one has. My experience of working here has shaped me and moulded me into who I am today.
We believe the world is a big family where we need to help each other - especially the marginalised section of the society - and CINI is the apt platform through which we can reach out to deprived communities in rural and low income urban settlements.
