Monika at a tender age has realized that poverty can come in the way of anyone’s dream. Instead of going to school, Monika makes the rounds of four to five houses each day and takes care of her father, till her mother and elder sister return. Monika’s father has been bedridden for three years now, due to an accident. Covid-19 pandemic has aggravated her problems. Since then, life has taken a bitter turn for Monika. The only respite in Monika’s life comes from her dream of becoming a teacher when she grows up.
Chanakya Chandragupta Trust as an NGO in India has so far directly put more than 27,000 children like Monika into the path of empowerment through education through its Mission Back to School programme.
Like Monika, there are 17 million children in India working as child labour. At least 62% of the total out-of-school children in India are girls. Last year, 51% of the total beneficiaries of the Mission Back to School programme were girls.
