Every monthly donation helps educate more girls like Pinki
Pinki is 9 and studies in 5th std in a government school in Jhuggi, New Delhi. She was a low performer in school and couldn't do her homework properly. She soon lost interest to go to school. Her uneducated and poor parents could neither teach her nor afford a private tutor to support her.
Pinki was identified to enroll in the remedial class by CSSAR. With the additional support, she began to perform better and secured first place in her final exams. She now looks forward to going to school and wishes to pursue higher studies.
Kids like Pinki are in the danger of dropping out of school due to minor learning challenges, you can help them with a little support to stay in school.

About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
Shiksha Shakti run by CSSAR, is a targeted programme for underprivileged slum children in which special coaching is provided to improve their education level. The programme complements the school education. Children, in primary school facing learning challenges and are from families that fall below Poverty Line (BPL), are identified for this program.
After school classes from 2 pm to 7 pm are conducted in the slums and teachers are recruited preferably from within the community. An ideal teacher-student ratio is 1:15 is maintained and a quarterly test is conducted to monitor the progress of the children.The children are grouped according to their grade and given special attention. The children with this additional support become confident and start performing better in school.
After a period of remedial classes, many children become stable and no longer need additional support. When you support this program, an unfortunate child can manage to avert failure.

Story from the field
Ankush, our bright-eyed boy has been promoted to class 6 this year. He was attending classes at the CSSAR centre in New Shyam Nagar, Delhi. His father works as in Keshavpur vegetable market and earns while his mother is a homemaker. His uncle, a fruit vendor, is the other person to contribute to the family’s earnings. There are, in total, 11 people in his family, making it very difficult for his father and uncle to manage the house’ finance. His grandparents came to Delhi in 1984 from a remote village in Uttar Pradesh named Jalali. Since then, they have been living in New Shyam Nagar. Four decades have passed since then, yet it seems that their lives stuck somewhere in time. They haven’t been able to break free from the chains of poverty over these forty painful years. As a student of SDMC Prathmik Vidyalaya, Ankush has won a gold medal in a Mathematics Olympiad and scored 382 out of 600 in his class 5th. He gives credit for his improvement in studies to our CSSAR teacher, Sardeep Kaur. The environment and the teaching methods used here have helped him reach to new heights. In his words, ‘my desire to study well brings me here every day’. He is not too far behind in other activities too.
