Sshrishti was established to nurture poor children deprived of the basic right to education and empower women from impoverished slums of Delhi. These children primarily belong to families of migrant labourers coming to Delhi to earn a living. Sshrishti aims to bring the joys of childhood to these under- privileged children and offers them a chance to realize their potential. After creating a strong foundation in their early years, they are mainstreamed into government or privately-run schools and are encouraged to continue with their education. Over the years it has extended its support to over 8,000 children and has extended its reach from Delhi to neighbouring states.
Education for Underprivileged Children: Sshrishti offers quality education for early years in its 7 centres in Delhi. Children are provided a glass of milk and a mid-day meal every day. Remedial classes are held every afternoon after regular school hours and lectures are conducted for students who are unable to cope with classwork and homework. The Sshrishti Learning Centre helps students improve their spoken & written English and trains them in using computers. Sshrishti Ladli program was started in 2006 to promote education for girls. Jai Hind program seeks to impart education to children of garbage collectors and rag-pickers. Music, dance, art and other extracurricular activities are an integral part of the curriculum.
