Objective of the mission:

To assist children in Maths, Hindi, English, and social science
To teach Maths and Hindi to drop out children
To set up a rapport with the parents
To develop creative and handicraft skills among children
The mission has been running a teaching program in a slum colony, Kuli Camp, near JNU, in Delhi. The teaching program augments the regular schooling provided by the Delhi Government. Children from grades 1 to 10th are taught primarily Math and Hindi. Two hours on every weekday they are also taught Social science and English. The mission at present has 37 students and 4 teachers and they plan to expand their program. In addition the mission is also trying to address the problem of the children who drop out of school. Recently sewing classes have been started for the girls to empower them by imparting sewing skills.
Project was terminated in Jan 2003 because the slum dwellers has been relocated to some other remote location in the outskirts of Delhi.
