Our children’s reading skills has improved. Our online activity i.e. Facebook, Peace flame network brings the Early reading Program through the office 365 platform with Enabling Support Foundation (ESF).

Once they are healthy, they will be able to study well, attend their school activities, perform well in academic tasks. The integration of education opportunities and good healthcare requires engagement of community stakeholders, community decision makers, community Development Partners & consolidated efforts, change of attitude towards farming, Nutrition support and access to healthcare services so as to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals 3 & 4 simultaneously i.e. Good Health & Well-being and Access to quality education opportunities.
