A Dynamic Economy Begins With A Good Education.
-Bob Taft

Education is one of the most important aspects of development. It has a significant impact on a country's economic prosperity. Without considerable investments in human capital, no country can achieve long-term economic progress.

Education broadens people's outlook on themselves and the world around them. It enhances their quality of life and provides a variety of social benefits to both people and society. It is critical for ensuring economic and social progress. It helps in the development of human capital, productivity, creativity, poverty reduction, encourages entrepreneurship, technological advancements, women empowerment, social development, health awareness, and other areas where economic development can be boosted. These different roles of education in India's Economic Development are addressed below.

Child Help Foundation's contribution to the Education and Economic Development of India:

Child Help Foundation (CHF) in the past few years has worked on the Pan India level toward the Sustainable Development Goals. As education is an important aspect of development for an individual as well as the nation, Child Help Foundation (CHF) is involved in a noble cause of providing primary education at the grassroots level to the economically backward sections of society.

We aim to provide all children with equal opportunity. Due to their socio-economic status, lack of access to schools, and their parents' poor regard for education, many underprivileged children in India do not receive a proper education. Education may not be able to solve all problems, but it is a means of transforming India from a "Developing Nation" to a "Developed Nation."

To uphold this vision, CHF has been providing scholarships to deserving students from disadvantaged backgrounds and children living in shelter homes all around India.

Several projects have been undertaken by CHF to support the Self-Reliant India initiative, which was launched by the government of India, for helping people and communities learn the ways to grow and benefit from the skills and techniques of the modern era.

Digital education had become important for every second person during the COVID times. It wasn't a difficult task in urban areas, but it was something very new in rural ones. CHF started the Digital Classroom to teach the tribal rural people to get into the habit of the new normal after the pandemic by using digital media.

Complex mathematical and scientific concepts are better understood when they are demonstrated in everyday situations. Therefore, CHF established Mini Science Centres in various schools, in villages across India to help students understand scientific and mathematical concepts with practical knowledge. Students are benefiting from models of scientific concepts such as gravitation, motion, reflection, and anatomy, as well as mathematical concepts such as algebraic expressions and geometry.

CHF has also established the Centre for Excellence Program with a focus on school development projects including the physical, academic, social, and mental needs of children.

India is on its way towards development, but illiteracy hinders the path of the bright future of the country. Many children show interest in learning, being educated and attending school, but due to a lack of access to education, they are unable to access proper knowledge.
