About The Organization

MelJol is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) registered under the Societies Registration Act. It firmly believes that children have rights and that children must participate in the creation of child-friendly world, MelJol seeks to develop children’s citizenship skills by focussing on child rights and responsibilities and providing them with opportunities to contribute positively to their environment. Meljol has been working with children and youth from socio economic backward regions for the past 20 years, and using the tools of social and financial education to help them break the cycle of poverty and face life with confidence.

MelJol works with children in order to help them and to become aware and financially independent.

MelJol’s social and financial education programme has spanned 29 districts across 11 Indian states in 2015-2016. We could reach out to 444035 children from 3508 schools, 120 villages and 11 Child care Institutions (CCI) . This year we have expanded our programme in Pune, Delhi and Himachal Pradesh. In Pune and Delhi we have partnered with “NEW VISION “and CHETNA respectively to implement the programme at ground. In Himachal Pradesh, we have launched a pilot project in partnership with the state government. The project reaches out to 90 schools across 3 districts of Himachal Pradesh.

MelJol’s flagship ‘Aflatoun Social and Financial Education’ programme provides children with the building blocks of life encouraging them to manage their resources better and start social and financial enterprises. MelJol’s programmes and activities are designed to impart life-skills education to children helping them bridge the gap between school education and life experience. MelJol primarily works with underprivileged children in Municipal schools, Zilla Parishad schools and tribal schools across the country. Through fun games, activities, songs and workbooks, children are encouraged to take an active role in the learning process. This includes schoolbased savings clubs, financial and social enterprises and group activities within the community. MelJol operates within the framework of the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). Initiated in 1991 as a field action project of the Department of Family and Child Welfare, Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), MelJol was registered under the Societies Registration Act (1860) and Bombay Public Trust Act (1950) in 1999. At MelJol, we realise that financial literacy can be achieved by working across three key dimensions – financial knowledge, financial attitudes and financial behavior. Thus we work to inculcate sound financial among the young. Children are shown the importance of “saving” and “planning”.

Meljol is also the Winner of HCL Grant 2017.
