Preparing underprivileged children for enrolment in formal schools
  • Crisis: Uttar Pradesh has the highest number of people living below poverty line in India. It is home to 18% of the world's poor. The inhabitants are incompetent to sustain themselves due to poor literacy rates. Majority children living in slums are not part of a formal school structure.
  • Programs: Open Study Centres set up in the heart of slums provides education and counselling to underprivileged children free of cost. These children are eventually admitted to formal schools and after school support is provided thereafter. Comprehensive education provided in English, Mathematics, Computer, Personality Development, Ethics, Sports, Arts, Hygiene, and Health. Focus is also on imparting behavioural skills to these children to turn them in to sensitive happy human beings. Graphics and animation are used to enhance retention capacity and develop cognitive abilities.
  • Outcome in FY17: 1) Free education provided to 750 children. 2) 71 children admitted to formal schools. 3) Formal school set up in Sonari for conducting after-school classes.
