Abhinav Balak Mandir is a kindergarden school which was started in 1996. It is run by a handicapped woman living in the same area (who is headmaster of this school) with the help of people in the community. The school currently has 40-45 children. Many parents are from middle class and lower middle class
families. Beofore the school was established, parents used to just skip K.G. education for their childern and send them directly to first standard; this would cause the children to fall behind other students and lack of interest in studies. Also, for some parents, there was no motivating factor to send their kids to school, since educational environment was absent in the area.
This school was started to introduce kids with the basics of conventional education at the right age and also to motivate parents to send their kids to pursue further education.
