  1. We were running educational activities with of support of Deepalaya – Reach India. Right now the support is discontinued, but the activities still need to continue. Hence we are seeking towars Aea for further support.

  2. We are an NGO working in Nuapada and Kalahandi districts in Orissa for the rights of children and women. Our main focus with women is women’s empowerment and with the children is “shaping the future of the neglected and deprived children” We have been addressing the issue of children’s education through non-formal schools, special schools for child labour and residential schools for tribal girls. We have already brought more than 3000 tribal and deprived children as well as child labour into the general mainstream throughour education proram.Currently we run six special schools under NCLP supported by GOI and enrolled 300 child labour in Kalahandi.However there are few thousands children who are out of this scholing system. Some of them are working as labourers. We want to do something for building their future by bringing to the educational system. Can we get some support from AEAI for our work in Kalahandi, Nuapada as a partner. Looking forward to a response.
