Basic education refers to the whole range of educational activities taking place in various settings (formal and non formal), that aim to meet basic learning needs. What does Veda do?— Built bridging schools in every slum to ensure that children who are deprived of any educational opportunity – atleast acquire basic literacy skills. In some slums, the schools we built sometimes provide shelter to people in times of emergency.
Since 2006• Total of 12 schools• 1 school in 1 slum• on average 90-100children/schoolso total of nearly 1200 children are getting education from our bridging schools

Antenatal care : Refers to the regular medical and nursing care recommended for pregnant women. It’s a type of preventative care with the goal of providing regular check-ups that allow doctors to treat problems throughout the course of the pregnancy thereby promoting healthy lifestyles that benefit both mother and child.Immunization is an important part in this programme
• Poverty is characterized by a lack of income/purchasing power attributable to lack of productive employment.• NGO’s play the role of facilitators in encouraging participatory approaches in empowering the poor by income generating projects.• This is with an objective of improving their economic status.
