Our programmes in Manoharpur (Jharkhand) and Vizag (Andhra Pradesh) aim to promote access to the basic right to education for children living in urban slums as well as marginalized and remote tribal areas.
In the slums of the former postal district of Visakhapatnam, FXB India Suraksha maintains school health units in two large secondary schools and promotes safe WASH practices in schools.
The project also organizes life skills education sessions for schoolchildren.
In addition, FXB runs two complementary education centres for students with special needs. 66 are currently supported there.
Pupils who have dropped out of school are identified and re-enrolled in the appropriate institutions. Unemployed young people are put in touch with training programs.
FXB India Suraksha is implementing a holistic programme to improve the level of service delivery in local schools and Anganwadis (rural childcare centre in India) in the 15 targeted villages through capacity building, access to facilities, additional learning resources and active engagement of stakeholders such as community and government agencies.
The project involves 10 government-run schools and 15 Anganwadi centres where the capacity of teachers and Anganwadi workers is strengthened to improve the learning and development process in these institutions.
In addition, FXB manages five complementary education centres for students with special needs. 160 students are currently being supported there. Pupils who have dropped out of school are identified and re-enrolled in the appropriate institutions.
The capacity of the school management committees is being strengthened so that they can effectively play their role in improving the quality of facilities and learning in local government-run schools.
Poor tribal women are involved in an entrepreneurship development programme which enables them to increase their incomes.
