Educating Slum Children

Mission Education is a state-level program of Jay Prem Yog Foundation, which is committed to providing basic education and healthcare to underprivileged children. Jay Prem Yog Foundation believes that whether you are addressing healthcare, poverty, population control, or unemployment, there’s no better place to start than in the corridors of education.

Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life; means, because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one’s awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behavior to understanding one’s rights, and in the process evolve as a better citizen.

Jay Prem Yog Foundation’s educational initiatives include Pre-school [3-6 yrs], Non-Formal Education [6-14 yrs non-school going], and Remedial Education [6-14 yrs school going]. It works for education for underprivileged children who are under difficult circumstances, such as child labor, children of the poorest, children inflicted and affected with HIV/AIDS, street and runaway children, children with rare disabilities, disaster struck children, and slum children. Special emphasis is given on girl education and women’s education so that they and their families get empowered.

Since its inception in 2020, more than 50+ underprivileged children have directly benefitted from the Mission Education program
