Sparsha understands the need to support the parents as well as the children through their programmes.
The parents are the role models and in charge of the early childhood of their children. It is important to reach out to the parents to ensure the children´s education and continuous attendance at school.
Provide counselling to parents for them to understand the importance that their children require education. Assist them and their children to get enrolled in school or distance learning.
