Sakshar, is a program solely focusing on education for underprivileged children. Our team consists of people who are committed to bringing about a change in the lives of these kids and to ensure they don’t feel left out in this rapidly growing world.
Our organization is working throughout the country with the help of trusted people, who come to teach and contribute in any way they can, towards the children from slums and streets. We work on a very grass root level while teaching children of all ages from 3 to 25 years of age.
In this program we try to bring a change in the thinking of people, with the help of various practical tools which include the following:
• We try to impart knowledge with the help of games and other educational activities and thus, improve their thinking process.
• We also give them a practical outlook to the subject through assignments, workshops & other practical projects.
• We have Yoga sessions, music lessons, cultural development, social enrichment and other activities where we make sure they learn to live a more healthy life, which helps in their overall development.
We use education as our tool to instill moral values in the children, so that they face the tough times with a sense of righteousness & prove to be better individuals. We want to utilize the government infrastructure to bring about a better education system. For this we are working on decreasing the drop-out rate of children studying in government schools by providing them basic amenities so that they don’t leave the school in search of work. We provide them with all kind of necessary things like books, papers, colors, pen, pencils, etc. We encourage every child to join school and be an educated Indian thus achieving what we stand for –a Shikshit Bhartiya.
