Bringing education to the Door Step of less privileged
  • The Society for Door Step School addresses issues of literacy for often-forgotten children of pavement, slum, and construction site dwellers, who are not enrolled in schools and have limited access to books, no place to study and drop out to take care of siblings. It tackles 3 main problems of non-enrollment, wastage and stagnation.
  • Door Step School comprised their initiatives under two main programs Community Based Interventions and School Based Interventions. They have programs aiming to bridge the gap by using innovative intervention programs like community learning centers, parents' participation, networking and nurturing, school on wheels, study classes, child care centers, transportation, training centers, community libraries, English study, Science laboratories and computer classes, etc.
  • So far the NGO has reached out to 48,000+ beneficiaries in Mumbai and Pune through community interventions and more than 287,000 students through their school intervention programs.
