SUPPORTING CHILDREN WHO HAVE LOST PARENTS TO COVID:
COVID has caused irreparable loss to families, both during the first and second wave. Our focus, specifically has also been children. Across Maharashtra, there are over 12,000 plus children who have lost a parent to COVID, till date.
Ten thousand plus who have lost their fathers and another two thousand, who have lost their mother.
Additionally, there are over to four hundred children who have lost both parents.
Project Mumbai has taken up the initiative of supporting the school education cost of every child.
This would be done across two phases.
In the first phase, the focus would be on every child who has lost both parents.
Once this is completed, we would reach out to every child who has lost a single parent as well.
Our initiative is in partnership with the Ministry of Women and Child, Development, Government of Maharashtra, with whom we have signed an MoU.
The first process would be the Social Investigation Report of every child–which is the verification of the child’s status, details etc which would be done by the District WCD officer. This would also include the child’s school details.
This, along with the verified report and request letter would then be submitted to team Project Mumbai which will verify the details as many times it may choose to.
Payment of Fees:
To ensure transparency of utilization, money will not be handed to the family for further payment.
The fees will be credited by Project Mumbai directly to the school account and a confirmation will be obtained from the school.
Team Project Mumbai will also be monitoring each case as and when they wish to.
For reasons of safekeeping under the various laws, the identity of every child will be kept undisclosed–except for the records of Project Mumbai and the Social Investigation Report, Government of Maharashtra.
