Teaching English and health related subjects such as contraception, nutrition, water safety and hygiene. Helping improve sanitation within the slum, increasing the general awareness of the dangers which surround the children in day to day life. Having fun with the children with regards to playing sports like cricket and football, dance and arts.Help with life skills such CV writing and improving job prospects
Helping the community to help themselves and challenging discrimination and poverty amongst the people living in the slum.
