THIS IS WHO WE ARE.

Concern for Humanity (CFH) came into being as a registered Non-Government Organization in January 2000 – 2001. It is a national level Non-Governmental Voluntary Development Organization. We are also registered under the FCRA for receiving foreign grants and donations.

Based at New Delhi, CFH has been formed by a group of professionals who came from different fields of specialization and are committed to the welfare of the disadvantaged people. CFH dedicated itself to help and enable the poorest of the poor build better lives for themselves and for their children.

The only way to social development and personal growth leads through education. That´s why education is not a gift – education is a human right.

We want our society to be a place where everybody has the change to raise his life and social status through education. Especially the ones who need the most protection – our children.

Our Mission is to educate the underprivileged children of our society. To give them room and time to study in a satisfying and sustainable way.

ABOUT OUR CHILDREN.

There are around 300 vulnerable children attending our learning centres. Most of these students are girls. A large majority of our children are the children of daily wage earners. In most instances both parents go to work. They work as skilled construction worker, unskilled helpers, courier delivery boys, electricians, contractual labor, etc. The houses that they live in are small one room houses and semi-pucca in nature.
All the students coming to our centres go to the nearby school(s), with an exception of a couple of girls who are over aged and they do not attend school at all. None of our children are employed. A large number of these children attending our learning centres have been with us since the past 4-5 years.

ABOUT THE COMMUNITIES.

It is very complicated and takes time for a social service organization to set up a learning centre for those kids which refers to their lives and the structure of their communities. Due to the circumstances, these children are not able to leave the area of their slum – it`s simply too dangerous. That´s why every learning centre that wants to reach these children has to be built inside their communities. It is a very long process to build trust in these communities and a lot of work to explain the impact of education for their children.
After that struggle, you still have the problem of renting a building and finding teachers who have to be females and also residents of the community. That’s why building a learning centre is not just a problem of funding. It is a very long and complicated process and even if you succeed there are more problems to come. But it is also a very sustainable way. The bonds we build to the communities are deep and build by respect.

A MATTER OF GREAT PRIDE.

It is a matter of great pride for us that most of the students who are enrolled in the centre meant for senior grades have grown with us and have been with us the past five years. It has now become a system in the field that all those children who complete their fifth grade in our junior section are moving to the centre for senior children. The teacher of the junior sections take in fresh enrollments as a result of children moving upwards.

CENTRE ACTIVITIES.

Our centres follow multi grade teaching. Children are grouped according to their grades in school. They are helped to improve their reading, writing and comprehension skills. Teachers help children to first complete their school homework, followed by helping children to prepare for their formative assessments/unit tests. The rest of the time is spent in building academic foundation for children.
Every centre has a library corner with books for all level of readers –beginners, moderate and fast readers. Every day, children spend time at the centres reading the stories aloud to the class. The teachers use storytelling as a medium for helping children learn clear pronunciation, spellings, meaning, synonyms, comprehension, discussion about ideas, helping children acquire life skills, etc.
We also provide co-scholastic activities, where children do creative stuff, such as, coloring, craft, dancing, singing, indoor and outdoor games, etc.

COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES.

Parent-teacher-meetings are a must. Our teachers try to sneak out time to meet with the parents of our children. This is an important contact opportunity to keep the parents informed about the progress of their children.
We have a calendar of activities and celebrations planned out. Children look forward to participate in these festivals, National Independence Day, Republic Day, Children’s Day, Annual Sports Day, Diwali, Holi, Christmas, etc. Every child attending the learning centres participates in these programs.
