Sshrishti Learning Center UKG Class
[This project's funding from Asha's side is closed. Last funds were sent in Sep 2013. If you'd like to contribute to this project or NGO, please contact Sshrishti directly at the contact information to the left and below.]
Sshrishti Learning Center provides UKG to Class III NCERT-syllabus based education to about 100 children in Kishangarh and slums near B-5/6 sectors of Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. English, Hindi, mathematics, environmental sciences, and computers are taught. Students are also exposed to music, dance, recitation, sports, theater, general knowledge, etc. Milk and mid-day meals are served everyday. After graduation, children are admitted into nearby government schools.

The students are from families of migrant workers. Their fathers either work as daily wage laborers in building and road construction projects, or as plumbers and electricians. Most of them are able to write their names and some of them can read. The mothers work as domestic help and are generally illiterate.

This project is currently funded by the Silicon Valley chapter of Asha for Education. Initial funding (2006-09) was provided by the Berkeley chapter.

To provide holistic primary schooling using modern teaching methods to underprivileged children so that they can continue with further education in government schools.

Sshrishti is a registered non-governmental organization in existence since 2003. It was started as a response to the needs of the children of a local slum. The effort was started with a few children assembling every evening in the living room of the founding member. It continued operating from there for almost a year and shifted to its own rented premises on Sept. 2004. Now, Sshrishti is a credible NGO enjoying accreditation from agencies both in India and abroad. It runs four learning centers in Delhi and six computer centers in various regions of rural India.
