The Slum School is located in the Red Light District and provided for children that are born to parents that are prostitutes, pimps, and thieves. These children have no hope for getting out of this lifestyle or breaking the cycle unless we help them and provide a way out. Through the Slum School, they provide food, uniform clothes, teachers, elementary caretakers, and education. By educating the children they have a chance to leave the life they were born into and provide for themselves and their family through their education.
Most of the children that attend the Slum School come from very broken homes, since the parents work primarily in the Red Light district. Without an education, for the majority of the children, their only option is to repeat the cycle. The Slum School is located in the middle of Vizak city in a small slum area. Each year we are helping to rescue up to 500 children through education -- by providing a place to go to daily for education and an opportunity for a better and brighter future.
To provide an education and an opportunity to a better life for these children, we are continuing to raise the funds to help pay the $12,000 per month needed to keep the school running. Please consider making a commitment to support Rescuing Lives on a monthly or one-time basis and help provide the education these children so desperately need.
