Parents have the capacity to impact the lives of their children by bringing transformative changes across homes, schools and community. We work with parents on three levels to bring school and community together to drive these changes.
We at Saajha, are committed to empowering communities hit adversely due to the Covid-19 crisis. With an objective that the well-being of children is ensured; Saajha designed interventions to support marginalized households with access to dry ration (uncooked food items), and feasible methods to engage with the child at home during the lockdown period in Delhi and Maharashtra.
Efforts were directed towards engaging with parents, creating a channel of communication and addressing multiple layers of issues faced by them. We extended support to 50000+ parents from Delhi, Mumbai, Bhiwandi, and Maharashtra’s tribal belts.
We provided access to ration to 5000+ parents. We established channels to provide crucial information regarding Govt welfare schemes.
Listening and responding to parents became the core of our efforts. Amidst the various challenges faced by them, we focused on ensuring parents' well-being. Our parent support team regularly engaged in empathetic conversations with parents. We extended more than 5000 hours of call-based support and exchanged over more than 2 lakh messages on WhatsApp.
We supported parents with tools to enable a learning environment at home. As parents became educators to their children, we supported them by providing information crucial for their child’s learning. We focused on building relationships between parents and children by providing engaging activities.
