Support JOY PATHSHAALA - Informal learning centres for slum kids

Creating JOY PATHSHAALA’s- informal learning centres for the slum kids; an attempt to bring them transition to formal education.

The Plan:

We are starting with 2 PATHSHALA’s in Delhi Mayapuri railway line slums and plan to open 3 more in coming months. Each Joy Pathshaala will educate 25 slum kids. Support us in the future building of one child or more or a complete Joy Pathshaala expense for one year.

Each school costs include Local literate Educators, Infra, Stationary material, Books, Snacks

It costs approx.. Rs.1,50,000 Annual per Pathshaala.

The Problem we are solving:

  • No concept of pre-school for slum children
  • As a result - No early motivation for school
  • Schools are at a distance- working parents unable/can't afford to arrange school transport/escort
  • Migratory parents in search of work often leave education & schooling agenda for kids

The Solution:

  • Setup micro format informal playschools to develop education affinity
  • Schools near their homes
  • Harness the power of unemployed neighborhood educators
  • A-40 week program which makes them like school ; build affinity via informal play and learn method
  • Work on the migration from play schools to schools with a structured reporting and monitoring method

The Expected Impact

  • Deploy slum-kids to Early learning
  • Give parents confidence that schooling is better to change things around for future
  • Provide unemployed an opportunity to earn for a better living
