Escape from Poverty

We educate underprivileged children to break the cycle of poverty

Charity Registration No. 1000179

Story

Escape from Poverty   is a British charity raising funds for Family Development Services, an educational NGO in South India, which operates “Building Blocks” free pre-school Learning Centres for impoverished children resident in seven slum districts located around the city of Bangalore

Children are admitted to Building Blocks at the age of three, and by the age of six, they have had a good introduction to an all-round education. They are basically numerate and are literate in both Kanada (the local vernacular) and English. With these skills, they can then gain access to the private, English-language-medium school system.

Escape from Poverty raises sponsorships and scholarships and runs an after-school mentoring and coaching programme to ensure that children from Building Blocks do not fall behind the progress of children from more advantaged backgrounds.
