Remedial Education for underprivileged children in Mumbai
Only 50% of the under privileged children that attend school attain literacy. Around 4.5 lakh marginalized children attend Mumbai's Municipal schools but less than 70% of them complete 10 years of education. Thus partnering with non-profits and giving remedial education would help municipal schools bridge this learning gap. Angel Xpress Foundation (AXF) works to transform the lives through regular access to educated adults.
AXF Learning Centres:Non-formal centres are set up in public parks and promenades which serve as makeshift classrooms or AXF Learning Centres. B) In-School English Program: With prior approval from the Education Department, children studying in vernacular medium schools are provided English lessons by AXF sponsored teachers. C) Daily Life Improvement Program: For all round development of children activities are conducted to improve students self-confidence, provide daily nutrition and counselling sessions.
At present, around 200 volunteers are mentoring over 800 children at 8 Learning Centres in Mumbai and over 1,700 students take free English lessons at municipal schools. In future they plan to set up 2 new centres and reach out to more schools in Mumbai to adopt their program.
