Education Children are the future of a nation. For an emerging country like India, development of underprivileged children holds the key to the progress of the nation itself, and their education is the cornerstone of this progress. But education for children cannot be achieved without ensuring the welfare of the family – a child can go to school regularly only when the family, particularly the mother is healthy and empowered; the family has decent livelihood opportunities and a steady income. Addressing the areas of education of children, Progressive Development Initiatives is a Section 8 [Non-Profit making] company incorporated under the Companies Act, 2013 with the objective to mitigate poverty in India, by supporting orphans, widows and other marginalized people financially and providing loan for self-employment; to organize health, hygiene and sanitation related programs; to provide non-formal and formal education. Progressive Development Initiatives we believe that money is required to support good causes but is not the only element which we can expect from others. There are a number of ways in which anyone can support us. This will not only help someone in need but also will bring you the peace of mind and soul. Even with a school nearby, children are unable to attend due to a number of immediate reasons such as the lack of money to buy a school uniform, insufficient funding to cover their school fees or money to get to the school. But there are also indirect reasons for not attending. A poor child from a deprived home is often compelled to discontinue educational pursuits due to domestic considerations and demands. Parents coerce the children to take-up sundry jobs that will help to supplement the family income or the girl is perceived to be a future home-maker who is expected to run household errands and to take care of younger siblings. The sad and pathetic consequences of this phenomenon have created a growing and alarming need to reduce dropout rates and to minimize the effects of illiteracy. Progressive Development Initiatives in its capacity as an organization has often assisted to fulfill the hopes of children and communities through its education initiatives around the city. It is an attempt to assist an underprivileged child to pursue an academic career through financial support.
