Children are the future of a nation. For an emerging and developing country like India, development of underprivileged children holds the key to the progress of the nation itself.
Education for underprivileged Children is the key word whether we are addressing healthcare, poverty, population control, unemployment or human rights issues.
The literacy ratio of India is 65.38% with male literacy at 75.85% and female literacy at 54.16%
Less than half of India’s children between the age 6 and 14 go to school. A little over one-third of all children who enroll in grade one reach grade eight. At least 35 million children aged 6 – 14 years do not attend school. 53% of girls in the age group of 5 to 9 years are illiterate. The United Sikh Mission volunteers are in the process of establishing contacts, setting up rules to identify deserving students. Currently a plan draft is under review. We are highly optimistic to grant at least 25 scholarships for the year 2009- 2010.
