SCAN-India is most concerned about the children as they are the future citizens and architects of the country. Improving the lives of young children is a major commitment of this organization. A large number of children in the villages lack basic education, health care and nutrition to grow strong physically and intellectually.
We try to offer these underprivileged children a childhood that will have a positive impact on their later lives equipped with good education and values. Therefore, we are currently running one childcare centre in Pulimadugu. It functions as a pre-school for the rural children within the age group 1 to 5. The centre provides them with fundamental primary education, health care, recreation and a nutritious meal. It is also equipped with toys and learning materials for the exclusive use of the children. After the pre-schooling the children are admitted in the regular formal schools for further education.
We plan to open two additional childcare centres to provide fundamental primary education and additional support for the children in Madhavaram and Mangasamudram. However, we are still looking for a financing of this project.
