PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES
ESRO focuses and believes every student needs to have access to quality education and poverty shouldn’t hamper their progress. To achieve this, the Educational and Social Research Organisation provides grants and scholarships to deserving meritorious students from underprivileged and low-income families.
Thousands of students have been benefited through our aid. They are now successfully pursuing higher studies in medicine, engineering, and arts and science courses. The organization has also adopted schools to improve its quality of education. We also conduct classes and highlight career options for school dropouts.
ESRO has been giving vocational training in tailoring and embroidering for unemployed women. By this, we are creating an identity for them as ‘informal workers’. We tell them the importance of been financially independent and prepare them for the same. We have also been creating awareness on sex education, gender equality, and human rights.
Our main goal is to increase self-confidence among women from underprivileged backgrounds, make them financially stable by teaching them necessary skills and make them leaders for tomorrow. We further give them training in personality development.
We at ESRO believe in making changes at the grass-root level. Rural development for a country like India is massive and we are taking it in a phased manner. From talking about sexually transmitted diseases like HIV/AIDS to creating awareness on global warming and climate change, we have come a long way.
However, We know that there is still a long way to go and our volunteers are tirelessly working for uplifting our rural population. Some of the initiatives taken by us are, educate people not to defecate in the open area, Civil society program in poor areas.
