About Chanydo :
Chanyd, Ahmedabad based NGO, works towards providing free education to street children coming from street living families from all over Gujarat.
Chanydo, a truly sustainable, fresh, vital and dynamic initiative, started with 51 underprivileged children from the poorest of the poor families from Gujarat.. Chanydo has focused on working towards empowering lives by facilitating access to quality education and secured environment to the underprivileged children of Gujarat.
Chanydo is a brain child of Dr. Shailesh Thaker. Dr. Thaker was thinking constantly to offer career to a student with competency living on street . Let us, provide an opportunity along with all resources which God has offer to all of us.
In the formative stage, Chanydo liaised with NGOs operating at grass root levels, to identify kids across the State and with the premium English medium schools for admission of Chanydo. . The response was encouraging, All trustees and board of directors have helped to move forward in the matter.
The important partner was the community at large, comprising of the volunteers, donors, sponsors, well-wishers and friends of Chnaydo. They contributed their time and resources to contribute towards the noble cause. The tripartite form of partnership of Chanydo with NGOs, schools and community transformed an institution into an alive organization, throbbing with life, smiles and excitement that paved way to building lives and life stories
The partnering NGOs help us identify the deserving children from the remotest of villages and slums/ streets of Gujarat.
To shortlist the children, a set of psychometric tests are administered to assess their logical reasoning and observation ability while still looking into their aptitude and intellect as well as the academic inclination. A battery of pathological tests and medical examinations through our panel of institutions and doctors, help us overrule chronic disorders, if any
The shortlisted children attend a camp for about 10 days at Chanydo , before the final admission process. Herein they are acclimatized to the new milieu through a grooming process , including fun activities and interaction with the elder kids and peer. The residential staff observes the children closely and prepares individual child reports in pre-determined questionnaires
FINAL INTERVIEW WITH PARENTS
A panel led by the chairperson, and having representation from the Chanydo , NGO and Chandydo is formed. On the final day of the camp, the parents of the short listed kids are invited to Chanydo to meet with their kids and have a formal interaction with the panel members. The parents are counseled and their consent is sought, prior to confirming the admission of their child in Chanydo. The panelists interact with the parents to understand their commitment towards the relationship with Chanydo
