Hansraj Children’s Home

India

AKP Project Since 2017

Category:

AKP helps bring positive change to the lives of young girls through residential education.

Overview

The villages adjacent to Udaipur are among the least literate regions of Rajasthan, India. The dropout rate is very high, especially among girls. Discrimination between boys and girls in education is very prevalent. Although there are primary schools in the villages, enrollment of girls is very low due to societal pressures, involvement in household duties, lack of transportation, and insufficient parental support.

Since 2017, AKP has been a proud supporter of Hansraj Children’s Home – a residential school that provides equal education opportunities for their enrollment of 100 girls. AKP’s involvement includes improvement of facilities and helping provide resources for free education, books, meals, and clothes.
