PROJECT ASHA

Project ASHA focuses on slum dwelling out-of-school children or school drop outs (6-10) who never got an opportunity to pursue basic education due to personal circumstances including lack of resources and ultimately take to the streets. Project Asha thus becomes a harbinger of hope.  Children are prepared to join formal schools in appropriate classes by providing the needed academic support and guidance. Children are also provided with a nutritious snack, study materials, stationery, cloths, etc. which acts as motivation to attend the classes regularly. Bridge education helps drop-out children re-join formal school. 

The approach includes the following: 

  • Children are divided into groups based on their knowledge and learning levels in different subjects
