The project Amrao Manush aims to support homeless children and improve their childhood while allowing their parents to earn an income for their family. The specific objective of the project is to help the children in their study, to increase their general knowledge and technical skills, and to engage them in extracurricular activities and to ensure proper nutrition for them.

Amrao Manush this by placing young children in daycare centers and by providing children over 6 years old with access to formal education. All children are placed in programs where they receive Psychosocial Counseling, Health & Wellness Education, Extracurricular activities, along with other services to support their family such as money management. 

Along with Sajida Foundation’s mission, Team Adhunika Jr. aims to enhance the life quality of the school going children of Amrao Manush Project for pavement dwellers so that they can utilize their true potential.
