school going children

Children are the hardest hit by poverty; it causes lifelong damage to their minds and bodies. Millions of children are out of schools due to poverty, discrimination or lack of resources. Societies that invest in education reap huge development dividends.

MCDS supports schools located at city slums as well as settlements set aside for families affected by the tsunami and the floods.

Programmes includes:
  • Educational assistance
  • Supply of teaching aids and study materials
  • Personality development training
  • Competitions and cultural events
  • Picnics and study tours
  • Health education and awareness programme
  • Awareness programme on Child Rights
  • Celebration of days of importance
  • Career guidance

MCDS in partnership with its associates support schools for poor children by way of books, furniture and honorarium to teachers.

Hundreds of school attending children avail evening supervised study centers.
