DOOR STEP SCHOOL
Doorstep School (DSS) provides education and support to the often-forgotten children of pavement dwellers, slum dwellers, construction site families and many other underprivileged families. Many of these children are not enrolled in school and have limited access to books and a place to study. DSS is trying to bridge this gap by bringing education to the “Doorstep” of these underprivileged children.
Dharmapuri, Tamil Nadu
The mission of Puvidham is to impart education to government school drop outs and children from the National Child Labour Prevention Program. Many of these kids have been unable to cope with the pressures of formal schooling. With some help, these kids can be helped back into regular schools after Class VIII. The project supports more than 100 children who are from the impoverished communities in the area.
Samerth Talim Kendra
Samerth Talim Kendra aims to provide support and services to the mentally and physically challenged children and their families. The children are from poor and marginalized sections of the society.
