HPPI’S National Programme Officer Interviewed By Sanskar Kranti News Regarding Goals For Benefitting Children

Humana People to People India’s, National Programme Officer- Mr Surya Prakash was recently interviewed by Haryana-based regional news media, Sansar Kranti News. The interview focused on HPPI’s goals and the organisation’s projects that aim to provide a platform for underprivileged children in India, especially those who are forced into menial labour. Projects such as the Kadam Programme and Academy For Working Children bring education a step closer to such children, who would otherwise have no opportunities to break out of the poverty cycle. Mr. Prakash proudly stated, “We have reached more than 10,000 children who work as labourers and workers, and given them an opportunity for a bright future. There are far more cases which go unreported each year. There have been stops along the way but we are working towards reaching out to more children”.

HPPI believes that education is imperative to a brighter future and a child’s health impacts his education. A nation which provides good education to its youth will always have a bright future guaranteed for itself.

INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT

Interviewer: Sansar Kranti is currently in Panipat. And with us, today, we have Humana People to People India’s, National Programme Officer- Mr. Surya Prakash. We gladly welcome you here.

Surya Prakash: Thank you very much!

Interviewer: I would like to ask you about the plans and goals that Humana People to People India has in mind for the future of the children.

Surya Prakash: At the outset, I would like to say that Humana People to People, India, began its journey about 20 years ago. In 1998, from (Block Neemrana in District Alwar), we started with a health programme for children in schools. We believe that health of a child, impacts his education as well. A nation where the education system is good, a bright future is guaranteed. This has been our motto for years. We have come far from where we started- today, our mission has reached 11 states of India (UP, Bihar, MP, Jharkhand, Telangana and more). We interact with people in Tuticorin, Chennai, organising programmes specifically related to children’s education. Our main focus is to provide a good education and indirectly a bright future to those who are working as labourers in factories, households etc. This initiative was started in 2007 with an aim to honour these children and give them a platform. We teach age groups varying from 5 to 18 years and include aspects such as how to be more presentable and live in a graceful manner. Slowly, we began to receive attention and appreciation from people around us. People asked what we gain from this but it is more for the benefit of the children. We constantly meet with government officers, corporate organisations who give us financial and moral support. Bal Shram Devas was an idea proposed by our team in New Delhi about a year ago. Our partners believed that it was a beneficial project and thus we began in Panipat by surveying residents of Wadhwa Colony, Jyoti Colony and Vikas Nagar where almost 400-450 children were underprivileged. We have reached more than 10,000 children working in households, factories, etc. However, there are far more cases which go unreported every year. There were a lot of stops on the way but we have made it this far. I have full faith in my team- they work hard day and night to give each child a deserving opportunity.

Interviewer: Mr. Surya Prakash has rightly said that those who work day and night, strive for nothing but their goal. He along with his team, have helped provide a life to those children who were forced to work as labourers under varying circumstances.
