Pre-Primary (Anganwadi Program)
In each of the five blocks our volunteers visit 30 Anganwadis totaling 150 in all. The Anganwadis are a part of the Integrated Child Development Scheme which focuses primarily on child and maternal nutrition, health and well-being. Our work is to get more children to come to Anganwadis and to generate interest in learning & academics in preparation for their formal schooling.

Primary School Program
In nearly 150 Government Primary Schools our volunteers meet with 5th graders teaching them to read & write fluently in their vernacular, English and also helping them understand fundamentals of mathematics. Our entire thrust here is to ensure that all children are able to read and write their vernacular fluently and also to ensure that there is a smooth transition to middle schools effectively stemming drop-outs.

Residential Bridging Courses
A program run by the Central Government under the Sarva Shikshan Abhyan aims to end child labour and child illiteracy. Through this program we partner with the government in running a school presently with strength of 45 children in the age group of 5 – 14 (1st to 8th grade). This school provides boarding and lodging to the marginalized children who are either school drop-outs or never enrolled. Our objective is to provide them quality food and education, something that the mainstream has failed to offer them.
