In a bid to provide shelter and education to 300 girl children who have lost parents (either one or both) to the Covid-19 pandemic, a special campus is being developed in Bettakote gram panchayat, located on the outskirts of Bengaluru city.
As part of the CSR initiative — a joint effort by Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited, Kempegowda International Airport Foundation (KIAF) and Sparsha Trust — the campus named Chinnara Dhama (which translates to ‘haven for young children’) is expected to be ready by 2022.
“Chinnara Dhama will be managed under KIAF’s flagship programme Namma Shikshana (Our Education). The initiative will provide safe and secure lodging facilities, as well as social and psychological support to girl children. It will provide access to quality education by enrolling the children at one of the BIAL-adopted schools. The children will also be provided with basic and vocational skills that are required to develop their social competencies,” a statement from the CSR partners read.
