The law of our country permits the children of convicts to reside with their imprisoned mothers until the age of six. VARHAD works towards protecting these children from the adverse impact of prison life.VARHAD initiated the liberation of these very children by opening Balwadis for the children of prisoners. These Balwadis function as a full-fledged school and efforts are being made to impart all-round education to the children.
For any child to live in a healthy society, education is an indispensable component. In order to make the children of prisoners empower,VARHAD has always been at the forefront in arranging residential educational facilities for many children of the prisoners in coordination with the state-run and socially responsible private run educational institutions. VARHADtakes the all responsibility of guardianship and sponsors the study materials and school kit for them at its own cost.
VARHAD initiated Samrat Ashoka Study Centre Initiative for the young unemployed youth to extend the support mechanisms to the youths apart from the core work that it does. The educated youths preparing for the job-oriented exams such as UPSC, MPSC, Banking, Railways, SSC and SSB get access to the library and hostel facility free of cost in Amravati. VARHAD has a corpus of nearly 1000 books for the students. Around 100 students (70 male and 30 female) from rural and backward socio-economic background avail this facility each year. In last few years hundreds of students have been successful in getting the jobs due to the timely guidance by the experts which VARHAD invites from different cities.
