Vision - Right to Education

  • SHRC believes that for overall well being of any society, health and education are two main pillars.
  • Children of poor urban slum dwellers either drop out early from school or those who continue in school, have very poor performance.
  • Such children are malnourished with resultant poor I.Q. and are weak learners
  • Unless nutrition, overall health and quality education is planned for them, a bright future for these unfortunate, under-served children can't be expected!
