Save the Child partners with AASRAA Trust to support the Mobile School Program which allows AASRAA to intervene and engage the families from slums to put the children from streets and slums on an education path. True transformation from a street beggar or labor to a educated child.
AASRAA ABC is an Anti Begging Campaign initiative to wean the children of begging who are forced into the streets by the underprivileged parents. The children once they mature from the ABC program then go thru a rigorous outreach program before they are mainstreamed into schools.
Street Smart is the overall program which governs the maturity cycle of a child from the street and slum who are either engaged in child labor activities of rag picking or begging on the streets to the point they are mainstreamed into schools. The children also receive remedial education via Wings program which allows them to build strong foundation for a purposeful life.
