School Grant Program for Kolkata Teens

In Kolkata, India

In an effort to curb second generation prostitution in Kolkata's red light districts, Grassroots Asia and Sanlaap, a Kolkata-based NGO, have teamed to provide grants to youth who would like to continue their education but have no resources for books and tuition. For qualified students who have received good grades and show leadership skills, full grants are provided. The program also includes counseling, computer training, a study center and self-developed youth leadership programs.
