Problem: What problem is this initiative trying to address?

Local administration and so called civil society do not cooperating in work. Human rights of these slum people are regularly violated by so called civil society and governing bodies. Illegal land mafia has encroached their land.

Solution Summary: What is the proposed solution? What do you see as its most promising aspects for creating shared value?

Basic education system according to the reach of these slum children has been adopted to overcome their needs and problems. Their cultural values are also developed with educational morals.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Specify both the social and the environmental impact of your work

The society is developing on the both social and economical levels. Education has played insignificant role in their development.

Financial sustainability plan: How is this initiative financially supported? How will you ensure its financial sustainability long-term?

No donation is accepted from any government or corporate sources. The people of this society are raising funds from their own earnings. We do not accept money or things from any NGO or society. This is our strength.

Unique value proposition: What makes your initiative innovative? How does your project differ from other organizations working in the same field?

Our NGO is doing everything from our own sources and strength. We are doing everything of our own.

Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.

This society was totally cut off from the civil society, when we started our NGO these people had welcomed us with warm love. Today we do not feel that we are different from them. It is just like our family.
