Sunbeam addresses the issue of lack of education for children of slum/construction workers in Mumbai. Challenges faced: drop outs due to frequent shifting of residence, parents busy in their own schedules, lack of transport; and parental mindset.
Provides comprehensive education for children living in slums of Mumbai from their 2 centers. Sunbeam conducts bridge courses for children in the age group 5-10 years who lag behind in school. Only 5% of students remain in the bridge courses as compared to 75% earlier. Over 90% of Sunbeam beneficiaries have now been mainstreamed in school.
Outreach >1,000 students. Beneficiaries are integrated into formal schooling systems and Sunbeam has tied up with municipal schools near their centers. There has been a decline in the school drop-out rate to 5% through efforts of community workers and child counsellors. 175 of 434 students enrolled in colleges passed with 1st class and distinction.
