The Society for Door Step Schools works with a mission to educate children living in the streets, slum areas or marginalized communities. The NGO imparts literacy and related skills to children between the age group of 3 years to 14 years. Out of school children as well as who are enrolled in government schools but need additional support are covered.

Major Interventions:

Community Based Educational Programs: Time-Place-Pace – as per the convenience of the child has been the core reason to design the programs conducted by the NGO.

Balwadi: It focuses on shaping children between the age of 3 years to 6 years through physical, cognitive and socio emotional development activities and motivating them to enter the education system when they reach the eligible age.

Study Classes: It provides extra coaching support through the uniquely designed education toolkits – before or after school timings, in and around the convenience of the child to discourage first generation learners dropping out due to lack of motivation or academic frustration.

Non Formal Education: It addresses the need of out-of-school children, serving as a remedial measure, giving these children an opportunity to gain literacy skills which they would have otherwise not have had. Emphasis is given on languages and mathematical skills.

School on Wheels:  It is a bus designed as a mobile classroom. In a space-crunched city of Mumbai, it acts as an emergency class room taking no space but still providing education. 4 classes of 2.5 hours each are conducted, catering to around 25 out of school children per class per location.

Community Learning Centres (CLC’s): It is pioneered as resource banks for reading and audio visual material to engage children in the learning process. It is now supported by our alumni students and secondary school students. Mobile libraries and vans also run around providing these age appropriate – attractive and fun learning resources to children.

School Partnership Programs:

First Step Forward: It equips the students entering Grade 1 to read alphabets, consonants along with simple words, poems, and songs – preparing them to absorb the school curriculum. 

Bal Samuha - Children from grade 5 to grade 7 as well as our alumni and youth of the communities are focused on to develop their leadership, self-management, decision making and life making skills through skills training and skill exposure activities and visits.

E-Learning - Children from vernacular medium schools are introduced to the English language with the help of multimedia content based mediums.

Mental Health Project – It aims to reach out to children who are at risk of having serious development issues, counselling them in groups as well as in one-on- one sessions thereby supporting them in coping with troubles.
