LittleBigHelps generelle arbejde
LittleBigHelp empowers individuals in India to create a brighter future. Through awareness raising, education and child protection, we work with local communities to empower and secure the rights of vulnerable people in West Bengal, India. Mission: We change your little help into a big help for people in need. Vision: We cannot help everybody, but we can help some. And we do it! OUR WORK At our ten Community Centres, we prepare children for school, support their families, and raise awareness about rights for people living in slum areas. We also offer educational support through tutoring courses, school preparation courses, and computer training. Additionally, we raise awareness on health and hygiene issues, and build women-friendly toilets in the slum areas. The goal of our Skills Development projects is to empower vulnerable women financially and socially. When a woman earns a salary, the entire family benefits. Through our Skills Development Projects, we focus on empowering and supporting women. More than 200 women are enrolled to learn a skill, so they can get a job as a tailor or beautician, for instance. At our courses, we also teach women about their rights and provide support and counselling to help them cope with abuse, oppression and other harsh living conditions. In our Girls’ and Boys’ homes, vulnerable girls and boys can get away from the streets and start a new life with care, comfort, nutrition and education – and a place to call ‘home’. Through our Computer Training for Tribal Youth, we empower young people living in rural villages with basic computer skills. We support the Centre for Special Education, which offers care and education for children and adolescents with special needs.
