Coorg Outreach Program

We are breaking down the barriers to education by helping poor and vulnerable children, including those who are living in remote districts of Karnataka like Coorg have access to some educational material. With the lockdown and losing hope to continued education, Sackhumvit is reaching out to laborers’ children living and working in plantations. Our goal is to improve literacy and numeracy skills and help children learn. As migrant families return to their villages, struggling for survival, their children's access to education will suffer unless special efforts are made. Aruna Roy, a social worker argues that the rural poor and migrant workers cannot afford internet resources and must be provided with alternate offline modes of education for their children. Our Sackhumvit staff Kaveri initiated this program and distributed worksheets to the laborers' children in Coorg district of Karnataka. Where there is a will there's a way!
