Asha Mumbai Center teaches 120+60+20 underprivileged children staying in slums nearby. They come from 1st to 12th standards from Municipality school and from different mediums-Marathi, Hindi, English and Urdu.

We try to enhance the potential of these children and promote their abilities to think, to explore and to contemplate. We support them in all these efforts through our innovative teaching methods, providing them with audio visuals, printed material and books, with interactive sessions as well.
We extensively focus on use of technology and try to expand their horizons beyond walls of classrooms extensively. We continuously develop our own IT center and digital facilities. That is why in recent Covid 19 pandemic lockdown of the city we were quickly able to create our Asha Mumbai Covid 19 Resilient Educational Program.
Here are some features of our educational activities:
1. We undertake the regular classes for children to develop their basic literacy skills in Morning, Afternoon & Evening batches. We are also conducting computer training classes for higher 5th to 9th std children mainly on Saturdays and Sundays.

2. We conduct demo classes on science, environment, social science and general knowledge with the help of most dedicated volunteers who interact with our children on regular basis.

3. We have library facility and reading material for the kids and are collecting the books on various subjects to improve children’s ability to read and learn by themselves.

4. We arrange workshops on Activities like Drawing, Crafting etc. to motivate children’s ingenuity. Children are taken on outing trips to places like National Park, Nehru Science Center etc. to experience the nature and science along with the fun.
