Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world and the most effective way to break out of the cycle of poverty. Yet, after 70 years of Independence, over two crore children (NSS-2014) still remain out-of-school in India. These children are not only deprived of their right to receive an education but they lose their childhood to earn bread for a living. Government through its Right to Education Act, 2009 have been making its way in enrolling and retaining children in school especially from the marginalized sector.
When there is a major imbalance, NGOs exists to balance the see-saw. NGOs like Shapers Charitable Trust play a significant role in ensuring that every child especially the poor receive the opportunity to build a better future through education. Many NGOs like Shapers Charitable Trust, Save the Children, World Vision, UNICEF, Cry, etc in India work at the grass-root level to strengthen the education system, spread awareness about the importance of education and enroll as many children as possible so they can thrive in life.
