AROH Projects

PAB

Padho aur Badho is an intervention which offers preparatory schooling and care to the out-of-school children, between 6-14 years of age, with an objective of mainstreaming them into formal schools. The program strives, on the one hand, to protect the right of the poor and marginalized children, who are out-of school for various reasons, and secure their admission in formal schools, and on the other, help the nation achieve its goal of universal primary education.

Since its inception in February 2009 till date, Padho aur Badho has grown in scale and coverage starting initially with 30 children in 2009 in one centre in NOIDA, at present there are 250 centres targeting to bring 7500out-of-school children into its fold annually. For most of the poverty-stricken children, education had been a distant dream and Padho aur Badho aims to bring a significant change in their lives.

The philosophy of the Padho aur Badho project is based on the belief that the mere provision of physical inputs is not sufficient for ensuring universal access to primary education. Instead, a strong partnership between parents, children and teachers is essential. The basic aim of this project is the universalization of primary education, with emphasis on both formal and non-formal education for all children from 6 to 14 years of age.

Padho aur Badho is exclusive trademark and is exclusively supported by GAIL India. However, the programme attracts a large number of corporates, volunteers and other stakeholders who engage with the programme to provide additional support.

The programme has also opened income generation avenues for the families of beneficiaries,especially the mothers by providing them vocational training and skill development in cutting &tailoring, stitching, embroidery, soft-toy making, handicrafts making and beauty culture etc.

The program envisages to train the mothers for better income generation. This has helped in reduction of the incidents of child labour in these slums covered by PAB. The enhanced income has filled the gap and removed the barrier which keeps children away from school.
