Save Project:
CHINAR is currently conducting a study for an international non-profit organization “Save the Children”. The study is called “ASSESSMENT OF IMPACT OF CONFLICT ON THE CHILDREN OF DISTRICT SRINAGAR, RAJOURI & POONCH” and is scheduled to be completed by the end of January’ 2014. This study will guide us to frame future strategies and program interventions for these three districts.
CHINAR intends to achieve quality education in government schools, which caters to around 63% of the student population, by focusing on gaps and obstacles in schools in J&K and by catalyzing and coordinating different schemes that already exist in the school education system.To accomplish this,CHINAR is in the final stages of signing an Memorandun of Understanding (MoU) with Directorate of School Education, Kashmir (DSEK). The duration of this project will be 5 years. During the first year of the project-pilot phase, CHINAR will select 5 schools in 3 districts of Kashmir division of J&K for intervention and is scheduled to start by March,2014.


A three year graduation program for marginalized youth in Bachelors of Computer Application was started this summer (August, 2013)  with 7 youth (including 3 girls) enrolled in collaboration with CASET College of Computer Sciences & Engineering.
