ABOUT HELPING HANDS JAIPUR SOCIETY
We are a Jaipur based NGO, established in 2005 for the purpose of the upliftment of slum dwellers of Jaipur. As our ‘Helping Hands’ name suggests we do not provide handouts to the poor, we provide platforms through which these people can launch themselves into lives that are beneficial in long term for themselves, their families & communities, and the broader Jaipur society.
To achieve our development goals we have 4 major programs –
1) Children’s & Adult’s Education
2) Women’s Education & Skill Training
3) Financial Management program
4) Community Health, Hygiene and Environment
We commenced our school in 2005 with just 27 underprivileged children, today we have 400 children enrolled and receiving totally free education from Nursery to 10th standard. Totally free education includes textbooks, copies, full uniforms and school bags, conveyance, nutritional lunches, school excursions and full medical care.
By the year 2023, when in our new school building, we will be providing free education and vocational skills training for up to 1,000 of these children.
