EDUCATION IS A RIGHT NOT A PRIVILEGE
The objective of The AWARE Foundation (Action With Awareness Regarding Education) is to give dispossessed, disadvantaged and vulnerable children in India the right to an education.
AWARE reaches out to children in deprived communities throughout India by using education as a way of transforming their lives for the better. It also provides street/runaway children and orphans with a protected childhood so that they can go on to make well-informed decisions in life.
In the last year AWARE has provided shelter to 60 HIV affected children, 112 street children, a school retention programme for 350 children, higher education support programme to 100 children and a special rehabilitation programme for 800 children of sex workers and HIV+ parents.
AWARE has supported over 15,000 cases since it started in 1997
