The organization runs a school for the out of school/drop outs, children of migrants in an urban slum in Ghaziabad. The parents of the children come from very poor background like labour class, petty shop owners/vendors, rickshaw pullers, auto drivers etc. They do not have a steady income and there is more mouths to feed than the earning. They are not aware about the importance of education and do not send their children to school. The school is situated in the same locality where these children come from. The beneficiaries in this project are children from the nearby areas who are out of school, dropouts and whose parents are migrants. The beneficiaries come from the destitute families whose earnings are Rs 3000-4000 per month and usually are families of rickshaw pullers, petty shop owners and other daily wage earners. The school is situated at the Ghaziabad slum and is manned by 1 Principal and 7 teachers and an ayah. The beneficiaries are identified through surveys done in the community and also recommended by other beneficiaries. Their background is checked by the outreach workers which includes, their family details, BPL status and other documents. These beneficiaries mostly come from the migrant and minority communities. There are around 130 children coming to school. The program is implemented with the help of a principal, 7 teachers and an ayah. The school runs both formal and non-formal classes and has different classrooms from Nursery to class V, a primary school. It has a computer room and a library. A curriculum is followed and children are also involved in co-curricular activities. After the child passes out from the school, they are admitted to the nearby Govt. school. They are also provided school supplies or as per their need and regular follow ups done to see that the child continues to study. The beneficiaries’ details are collected in number of ways. At the time of admission there are admission forms that the beneficiary has to fill up along with copy of identification like Aadhar card or parents BPL card etc. Then their daily attendance is marked in the attendance registers. These details are then entered in the computers to track the beneficiaries. The instructors also maintain their dairies which have their details.

Back to School
The children were out of school. They were not going to any school due to frequent migration, parents were not able to afford the fees of the children.
The children are coming to the Education centre and have formal schooling up to primary. They are then marginalized with the nearby Govt. school and regular follow up is being done.
The school is running properly and children are doing well. Their interest levels have improved and come to school daily.
