The massive building boom in Pune has created a large out-of-school children phenomenon. Construction workers are migrant, moving from site to site. They come from various parts of the country and speak different languages. They are often illiterate themselves. Finally they lack the resources to be able to send their children to school. 'Project Foundation' was launched by Door Step School with the intent of targetting precisely these children in a concerted fashion. Since Door Step School operates in the Baner/Pashan/Aundh area of Pune, a systematic search of all construction sites was undertaken. At each site a survey was conducted to find the number of out-of-school children. At appropriate sites where the builder offered to provide a safe and secure classroom, classes have been started. So far 12 new NFE classes have been started in addition to the one's already being run.
To provide basic literacy skills to children of out-of-school construction worker's children. They are expected to reach std 2 levels in language and math.
Door Step School provides education to children who (a) do not attend school (b) drop out early (c) have low learning levels
