eduAs we all know that deprived children & illiterate youth are large in number requiring special focus for provision of various services. This category contains the entire cross section of children & youth living in slums, street children, working children, children of sex workers and children who are affected by any natural or man made catastrophe. In urban areas, like NCT Delhi the situation of such children & illiterate youth is often worse. Children & illiterate youth are either employed or working in inhuman conditions in garages, teashops and as domestic helps or supporting families to earn for sustenance. These children & illiterate youth face exploitative situations at the work place and are denied leisure at home and the opportunity to learn because of lack of basic amenities.

The formal education system does not reach out to these children & illiterate youth and there appears no mechanism to get these children & youth into the primary school net. Bringing these children & illiterate youth to school and ensuring that they complete primary education.

AROH has been running 35 Alternative & Adult Education Centres in Delhi & NCR. The organization was able to successfully run these centres catering approximately 1,000 children. In next financial year we are targeting at least 75 Alternative & Adult Education Centres in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Haryana will run successfully.
