Welcome to the Website of the Children's Health and Education Fund
All children have a right to the basic necessities of life and the means to attain them. The purpose of CHEF is to contribute towards this by helping individuals and projects that are working towards this goal.
2020 PROJECTS AND INITIATIVES
Focus on the Girl Student
“Education is one of the most critical areas of empowerment for women. It is also an area that offers some of the clearest examples of discrimination women suffer. Among children not attending school there are twice as many girls as boys, and among illiterate adults there are twice as many women as men. Offering girls basic education is one sure way of giving them much greater power -- of enabling them to make genuine choices over the kinds of lives they wish to lead. This is not a luxury. .... it as a basic human right”.
Thanks to your generosity we now have three young women enrolled in University on CHEF scholarships and one in Secondary School in India.
Marina Gupta is at Vinoba Bhave University studying Physiotherapy. Anita Kumari is studying at Krupanidhi College of Nursing for a General Nursing Midwifery degree. Sunita Kumari is enrolled at Koshys College of Nursing for her BSc Nursing.
Profound thanks to all her joined together to achieve this goal. Now the effort must continue to keep these kids in college and on the path to their bright future.
BOOKS FOR SCHOOLS
Four boxes of Books were donated to the Tinitia Primary School in Orissa, India. With a large proportion of tribal children, this school uses innovative approaches to bring these late starters up to age-appropriate classes with an extra focus on their advancement.
Using educational games, story books, interactive puzzles and cultural programmes, The Tinitia Upgraded Upper Primary School is one example of a rural government school bringing a superior education to remote and girl students.
