Our Story

Centre for Education and Health Research Organization (CEHRO INDIA) is a Delhi based non-profit making autonomous body registered in March 2012 under 1860 Societies Act. We work with migrant children from Munirka Village and nearby slums. Migration of people from one geographical location to another has been rising, as in the five years, 2012 to 2016, an average of 9 million people migrated between states every year for either education or work. Migration has adverse effect on poor, especially children as their families struggle with lack of basic amenities like electricity, sanitation, healthy meal and water and hence the education takes back seat. In many cases, even if children were enrolled in schools in their native city, they tend to drop out and take odd jobs or stay at home to take care of their younger siblings. CEHRO works towards the better future of these children and the community by providing them access to better education, health and work. Since 2012, we serve the underserved of Munirka Village whose gross family income does not exceed 2 lacs. We are community based organization with our centre located in the heart of the area. Till date CEHRO has accepted more than 3000 youngsters whose parents are engaged in menial jobs (sanitation workers, rag pickers, washer man etc.) and thus they lack constant care and guidance at home. Around 45 % of our children come from critically poor families and around 63 % of them are girl students.


To contribute towards the betterment of the society by facilitating empowerment of the neglected section of the society through quality education, effective healthcare, livelihood opportunities and skill development.


By 2030 every migrant poverty affected child in Munirka will be given an inclusive, supportive and progressive environment so that s/he can grow to the full potential.

Our Approach

It is daunting and overwhelmingly seems impossible to take every child out of poverty but if we do not work towards that we cannot claim to be working at all. We believe that every child can grow to their full potential given equal opportunity and suitable environment. We concentrate on the holistic development of children and aim at putting them on the path of freedom- financial and social freedom.

We primarily serve the migrant families who are critically poor with annual income of less than 1 lac. Children from these families are mostly first generation learners and are deprived of basic needs. We act as a catalyst focusing on the child centred solutions primarily derived from the community. More than disrupting the system, we focus on aiding the development by availing them the setup inside the community and facilitating growth of the change agents.

Our centre runs programs which are specially tailored according to the existing needs. In addition to that, we deeply value the creation of sense of responsibility among children. In order to convert our children into change agents so that they work towards community transformation, we provide them ample access and exposure, leadership opportunities and push them to take their own initiatives.
