Aakar’s main programs were services, awareness & research regarding mental health & behavioral science till 2016. The foundation decided to step up in direct community based project work through education sponsorship project. This came from many years of working with communities for mental health. Still children from marginalized communities & weaker sections of society are deprived of basic education. Hence Aakar set up an education sponsorship program for students from 7th Std to 12th std. mainly for single parent families or for families where one spouse is incapacitated. The family needs support to complete children’s basic education.
It was observed that child marriages are still common in the rural part resulting in a highschool dropout rate in girls. At the same time they have to work as child laborers to manage two ends meet. Hence sponsorship program aim.

  1. To reduce school dropout rate among children.
  2. To prevent child marriage, child labor & juvenile delinquency
  3. To help child to complete basic education.
  4. To provide counseling services to children, emotional support, so that they can grow to maximum capacity.
  5. To help children to understand their personalities through different soft skills.

"You can make a difference in this situation to the child".
