Joy Home for Children
Joy Home for Children is a Registered Charity which takes care of orphan children in Hyderabad, India. Set in with 3 acres of land as their playground providing a safe and secure environment where the children return to after a hard days schooling. 'Spread the Joy Foundation' supports Joy Home by funding any needs and requirements.
As well as providing a home, Joy Home registers all the children into Government Schools, funding all fees, stationary and uniforms. They also provide food and heathcare as well as training and development skills to ensure that they are able to become independent in the future.
Support Street Children
One of our objectives is to build up a relationship with families of slum and street children, encouraging them to attend school and financing any expences. This may involve offering incentives to families such as offering a bag of rice each week if the child attends school.
Many children are encouraged to beg or rag-pick by extremely poor, illiterate families. Many commence their profession as young as five. Most of them never attend any school nor have any formal education. Most of their families are in desperate need of extra income. These young children are their source of income.
A law making primary education free and compulsory in India came into effect August 2009, opening the door for millions of impoverished children who have never made it to school because their parents could not afford the fees or because they were forced to work instead.
Even though nearly all educationally developed countries attained their current educational status by legislating free and compulsory education -- Britain did so in 1870 -- India has dithered and lagged behind in introducing such legislation, with grave consequences. Of the nearly 200 million children in the age group between 6 and 14 years, more than half do not complete eight years of elementary education; they either never enrol or they drop out of schools. Of those who do complete eight years of schooling, the achievement levels of a large percentage, in language and mathematics, is unacceptably low.
The new law entitles all children between the ages of 6 and 14 to a free education, regardless of their social status, gender or income level.
Under the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, passed by Parliament in August 2009, all costs that prevent a child from attending school will be paid by the government, which will also be responsible for enrolling children and ensuring attendance, a government statement said. Private schools must also reserve a quarter of their seats for children from poor and disadvantaged backgrounds - something elite private schools unsuccessfully challenged. Still, there are significant obstacles to adding millions of children to enrolment lists in this nation of 1.2 billion. Resistance to the law is likely in deeply conservative regions where families hesitate to send their daughters to school, especially when they are likely to interact with male students. Government-run schools in India are often dilapidated, lacking adequate equipment and trained teachers.
The law also bans children from being denied admission to a school due to lack of documents like birth certificates, a frequent impediment for poor families.
