Target group

The primary target group of the Bal Sarathi programs are children of 4-18 years of age, ,who can’t afford to attend school or any formal schooling due to poverty, migration, conflict and parent’s neglect and incapacity. The children who resort to begging alms, donations, free lunches and unwanted activities like sex trade, drug abuse etc at the Pashupati and Guheswori areas (religious sites) and elsewhere for meeting their and their siblings hand to mouth problems.

SHNP targets school children of Bal Sarathi as well as that of other schools. In Bal Sarathi’s programs, marginalized and disadvantaged communities will also have high priority.
