Help us Restoring the dignity of children from slum areas of Delhi
“ How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment to improve the world.” Anne frank
We want to restore to an underprivileged child the opportunity to study, to be nurtured and cared for in a supportive and secure environment and to develop to be all that he/she can be! We want to empower a child to succeed and to break the cycle of poverty to impact generations to come! The physical environments of slums present many challenges to residents, particularly children. As the well-being of children – in terms of health, nutrition, education and protection – is closely connected to the quality of physical living environments and to the delivery of and access to services, children must be central to slum improvement policy. My Angels Academy is run by Sylvester peter with help from friends and family helping 150 children or as he lovingly calls them ‘Angels’ from the slum areas of Vikaspuri, New Delhi achieve their true potential through football and education.
Importance of early childhood development
The emotional, social and physical development of young children has a direct effect on their overall development and on the adult they will become. That is why understanding the need to invest in very young children is so important, so as to maximize their future well-being. Optimizing the early years of children’s lives is the best investment we can make as a society in ensuring their future success. As an avid sports person and a brilliant student himself, Sylvester used the power of sports especially Football to tap youthful energy and enter hearts of his students. At the Academy children are also familiarized with yoga, meditation and different aspects of life like personal hygiene, environmental protection, sex education, gender equality, education, life skills, dancing, painting, computer education.
Strong Foundations for Gender Equality in Early Childhood Care and Education
We believe that each boy and each girl have the right to early childhood education. Gender equality starts with each girl and each boy having a sense of dignity and self-worth. This goes hand-in-hand with respecting the dignity and worth of other boys and girls. Here is the seed that we collectively as a society have a responsibility to help nourish in all learners. The fruit of this care will be women and men who are full equal partners in their homes , communities and societies. They should have a voice and be encouraged to make choices, where possible, on activities, books and games within a framework of balanced learning. No toys or games should be reserved for one sex as this often reinforces stereotypes.
