What is the Happy Kids Program
The Happy Kids program identifies children who are extremely vulnerable due to loss of parents, abuse, extreme deprivation or dwelling on pavements etc, through partners like Akanksha, Teach For India & CORP. When a child is vulnerable in the existing environment, we enroll her/him in our program and our team handholds the child into a safer environment, through quality residential schooling in Panchgani, Nashik, Pune. The intervention continues till the completion of education, so as to eliminate the risks of dropouts, child labor and child marriage.
To help the kids stay on course with their career we map a mentor to each child to guide the child till the completion of education. The program takes care of education, health, nutrition, extracurricular development and many supporting needs to keep the child in school and college and hence till date about 50 kids have been supported by the program and our alumni today are professionally employed, independent adults.
