Unable to afford basic human needs like thirst, food, and shelter, parents living in poverty are often left with no choice than to catapult their children into the same unjust world of child labour that they themselves have grown up in. Few are able to barely save money and admit their child into a school, where the child faces difficulties owing to years of inequality.
Lakshyam (NGO in India for children education) vowed to right these wrongs and ensure that the human rights of these children are no longer violated. Basic Education is the human right of every individual as laid down in the International Human Rights Law by the United Nations. Butterfly- Child Welfare and Education program was established to provide comprehensive assistance to impoverished children through a learning program focusing on textual and practical knowledge as well as personality development. Butterfly is a symbol of freedom – freedom from the clutches of inequality and child labour.

We all have fond memories of playing with toys in our childhood, be it a plastic soldier, remote control car, favorite jigsaw puzzle, or superhero/princess figurine. Children of slum dwellers, street children or kids staying in remote villages often are devoid of this experience altogether. They have to settle for makeshift toys made from tyres, plastic bottle, sticks, rope – whatsoever limited things they have around them.
Education on its own can not foster holistic development in a child, toys play a crucial role as well. They help the child in exploring and making sense of the world around him. They boost the child’s imagination and creativity skills. They allow the child to emotionally relate to others through imaginative play and role playing with friends. When children are feeling distressed, they often find comfort in their favorite toys.

Women in India have to endure many ordeals in their day-to-day lives. For centuries women of all generations have had to struggle to be treated as equals. Gender inequality is reflected in India’s low ranking on the Gender Inequality Index released by the UNDP, in 2016 India ranked 130 out of 146. Furthermore, UNDP’s Human Development Index (HDI) 2015 highlighted that with respect to gender inequality, only Afghanistan fares worse than India among South Asian countries. On every parameter of the gender inequality index (GII), India lags behind even both of its neighbouring countries, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Lakshyam works to fulfill basic human needs of the destitute (with a special focus on women and children) and empower them through its four major programs, Rooh, Butterfly, Toy Library, and Aarogya. Lakshyam’s continuous efforts, kind donors, determined volunteers are together helping to fulfil its mission towards an environment of equality and freedom. Lakshyam identifies communities which are in dire need of an intervention. We provide aid in order to strengthen the community to a level that they are able to sustain themselves without any outside intervention in future. Following is a glimpse of the areas where we work.
This was our first centre which we have closed after being there for 5 years as we believed that community was aware enough to send their next generation of children to school , their collaborative health camps were tied up , women were employed and empowered and 90% of the children were going to the nearest govt school.
Majorly the entire community works in traffic signal either begging or selling toys as a source of their livelihood. This is a new baby for Lakshyam and the condition is really bad. Around 200 families are staying in tents over 20 years with no access to basic water. They have to buy water to drink or wash so eventually they don’t take bath for 10 days or wash their hands after going to toilets or wash utensils. Only 7 children go to school in the entire Basti. We have been working here since last 2 year.
Community comprising majorly ragpickers and daily wage workers. Around 70 children since last 2 years wherein we are targeting to put 15 most bright children to a private school as govt school in this area just as a name with no education. Education level in form of school enrollments is quite low , none of our students go to a formal school. Like in earlier Basti they don’t have water in this area electricity is a major issue. We have completed 3 years of our work in this area. Along with children the women here specialized in tailoring and are manufacturing 5000 cloth bags every month.
Lakshyam NGO in association with Police Station Anand Parbat launched a Social Welfare Project for the upliftment of communities living in Anand Parbat, New Delhi. The project is powered by Enactus Ramjas College which includes various initiatives that are designed with a vision to provide good health, education and empowerment to the not so privileged people living in Anand Parbat. The juvenile delinquents are also provided education in an effort to better rehabilitate them into the society.
No access to a proper formal school for kms , Lakshyam school acts a only hope for around 65 children in the outskirts of Ujjain.
Lakshyam has adopted a school in Mahua Toli, Namkom, Ranchi. Children belonging to the backward classes are provided remedial education in this centre. We aim to mainstream them into regular schools.Follwed women of same community are targeted to be empowered and employed.
