SAFA works to provide children and youth with access to quality education and skill training, especially to girls from underprivileged communities and works on the capacity building of beneficiaries across all ages and genders for generating their livelihoods.
For many girls in India, attending school is a distant dream. Government through its Right to Education Act, 2009 has been making its way in enrolling and retaining children in school especially from the marginalized sector. SAFA aims to help children, young girls and drop-outs to exercise the right of education and thus empower them and provide them with opportunities in further education. We have impacted more than 16000 children through projects like Aqriti 1 & 2, Come to Read (CTR), Sitarey (Junior & Senior), and 50 Indians. Through these projects, we are offering scholarships, tutoring drop-outs and thus mainstreaming them in schools, strengthening School Management Committees (SMCs), and promoting STEM education in government schools.
Capacity Building & Financial Inclusion
SAFA believes in the overall development of an individual and focuses intensively on the capacity building of our beneficiaries regardless of gender and age. Through Roshni club, Awaaz, and Yuva Josh Club, we capacitate & empower women, youth, and children to generate awareness regarding different topics such as education, health, environment, and other social issues and help bring change in their attitude and thoughts.
Skill Development & Livelihood
Livelihood is very critical for the deprived and marginalized women and youth population in the country. People at low education levels have little chances of securing a job in the formal sector; they seek out options to generate income to sustain their families. Women and youth from marginalized sections are provided with vocational training in tailoring & stitching, embroidery, beauty & wellness, and cooking and further connected with livelihood opportunities either engaging them in our production units or support them in setting up their own businesses. We are providing skill trainings also in General Duty Assistant Nurse, Information Technology enabled Services (ITES), Advanced ITES, Retail Management, MEDP, etc. Currently, we are working with individuals residing in Vattepally, Darulshifa, Hafeezpet, and Masabtank.
