Briefly description of organization:
Indian Women and Child Welfare Trust (IWCWT) which is a Social development, relief and advocacy organization registered in New Delhi as a charitable trust in 2000. We are committed to the Millennium development goals. Our vision is to create a just, equal and peaceful society where everybody shares and cares for the poor, unprivileged and exploited people and make the world a better place to live in. Its priorities and objectives are to carry out charitable, holistic and sustainable development work among the poor, marginalized, downtrodden, illiterate, vulnerable and the exploited ones, irrespective of their caste, creed, color, sex or religion. It has completed 12 years of determined social development service in 2012.
The organization is primary focusing on the Improving Community Education, development and empowerment of children, youth and women who are residing in the urban slum in New Delhi, India.

What are the project goals and how will they be reached?
The project goals are to develop the educational qualification in slum children, youth and backward women in the community. In this way the organization will play its role in poverty eradication of this section of the society and provide literacy and awareness on necessary developmental subjects.
To reach these goals the organization is planning to run Vocational Training Classes, Health Awareness programs and Economic Development Classes for the target community and assist them to start income generation programs.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
These communities are under-privileged with little or no income. Any work they find is low-status, menial and insecure. Survival is difficult with a high risk of women and girls being trafficked into forced or bonded labour, the sex industry or ritualized prostitution. Their nutrition, health and education are very poor. They lack higher-level qualifications and so have difficulty finding work. They need training for useful, better-paid employment to improve their families' circumstances.

What specific results do you expect this project to produce?
We expect that the children, youth and women who will enroll in our programs will be trained in such a way that they will be able to get jobs or start their own tution centres. We will see to it that all or most of the youth and women who will receive training will earn their livelihood.
The project will be monitored at every stage of implementation through the “Board of Trustees" consisting of the President and Secretary of the implementing agency, official nominee from funding agency, President and Secretary of the women SHG group, social worker, resource person/educationalist using various qualitative and quantitative indicators for measuring success levels of the projects.

The groups achieving satisfactory performance will be put on high priority and these found below satisfaction level will be taken for interim evaluation to learn lessons for remedial measures and cautions to be observed.
