With a little help Roshan now enjoys learning

Roshan is 6 years old child. He lives in a slum in Sagarpur. Both his parents work as daily wage laborers. They work long hours and struggle to make ends meet.

Roshan goes to a nearby Govt. school. His parents though illiterate want the best for Roshan and want him to be educated and have a good future. However, their work does not give them enough time with Roshan. They are also not literate so cannot help him with his school requirements.

On the advice of well-wishers, they enrolled him in the Parivartan Shiksha Kendra, Sagarpur.

Sarthak Prayas made sure that his needs were taken care of. Roshan made overall good changes since he started attending the center.

He is a brilliant child who needs more focus on his studying methods. The center is working to help his concentration. At this age, he remembers multiplication tables till 25 and is very sincere in studies. He is also active in co-curricular activities.

Sarthak Prayas not only help him in studies but also keep his childhood alive by celebrating his birthday and give him other such small joys.

Without this support, Roshan could have found his studies very hard. With no help, children like him are at risk of dropping out of school.

You can also help little children like Roshan enjoy little joys that they deserve. You can donate so that organizations like Sarthak Prayas can continue to help the overall development. You can give with confidence because every program listed is GIVEASSURED.

Program Description

Sarthak Prayas run centers to support students studying in Govt. schools and living in urban slums of Delhi/NCR.

One unit of donations to this program will cover the cost of the snacks and birthday celebration, reimbursement of tutors' travel and story books for a child.

Sarthak Prayas works with students in the areas of Punjabi Bagh, Vasant Kunj & Gurgaon or in sponsored centers in Rohini, Shalimar Bagh, for their overall improvement in studies, attitude, communication, and hygiene.

The centers operate from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm, Monday to Saturday from various places. Children from classes 3 to 8 attend the centers. The centers help the children in their homework, teach them spoken English, impart positive attitude towards life and make them aware about the importance of hygiene.

The kids are also given food which motivates them to attend the center regularly.

'Build a Foundation' is one of the programs where Sarthak Prayas provides free remedial education to kids of slum areas of Delhi/NCR.

There are presently 40 kids studying in the remedial education center. The students receive stationery items and books every month.

They are also provided refreshments every day.

Sarthak Prayas hoped to raise funds to open more and more centers to help more children across the areas of Delhi.

About The NGO

Sarthak Prayas
Sarthak Prayas Logo
Sarthak Prayas

Sarthak Prayas was established in the year 2003 with aim to help the underprivileged of New Delhi in the area of health and education. The programs are spread across different slum areas in the city. Two of their major interventions are in the field of education as well as elderly.

Under education, Sarthak Prayas runs remedial education centers where students from government schools attend classes every day to improve their knowledge. The centres help students complete their homework and revise lessons of the day. They also impart life skills and teach them how to deal with real life situations. The organisation runs eight centers in Delhi/NCR with 40 students studying in each center.

Since the children are from an impoverished background, the organisation also supplements their nutrition with packed food every day after the class. In addition to this, as part of recreation for the children, the centres also celebrate children's birthdays every month. During the celebrations, children cut cake and the teachers distribute gifts. Each day the students attend sessions for approximately 90 minutes.

Their other program focuses on people at the other end of the age spectrum, the underprivileged elderly. The premise behind this is that the elderly have struggled all their life for food, shelter and livelihood. They have now reached an age where their bodies don't allow them to work a lot and their economic conditions do not allow their families to be able to take care of them either.

Sarthak Prayas visits the slums and identifies elderly people who were unable to take care of themselves. As a part of their intervention, they provide dry ration on a monthly basis for a one person's need. They also provide quarterly clothing and toiletries. The material is distributed in designated locations near their slums every month.

Apart from the above two programs, they also run a telephonic helpline centre for people who require blood transfusions. Sarthak Prayas tries to fulfil requests raised within 2 hours. Finally, they also organise awareness camps at public places and schools on the dangers of Global warming. Till now, they run such camps for more 1000 students in the Delhi/ NCR region.

Education for Wings


report image

Activities and work undertaken in the last 5-6 months

With your support, we have been able to aid the educational needs of 300 children, residing in the urban slums of Delhi NCR. The funds were well utilised for making futures brighter, by catering to their educational and recreational needs. 
To cater for their educational needs, online classes are being conducted from Monday to Saturday. The classes are a mix of topics, ranging from mathematics, science, social sciences. Along with the above subject: a. Virtual celebration of birthdays and other festivals is done every once a month. b. Virtual Yoga day celebration- a special session on laughter yoga for the children was done for their mental well being.c. Art and craft, and dance sessions were held to nurture and withhold their creative minds d. A special session on Artificial intelligence was conducted to make them aware of what is artificial intelligence and that it can be a career for one of these children.e. Regular Moral value sessions are held with children to inculcate good moral values in them.f. Periodic sessions on Child safety are conducted to ensure their safety and increase awareness for the cause.For recreation and motivation towards education, they are gifted various hampers, consisting of stationary articles, food items, clothes, and other accessories like bags, hairpins, and so on.

Challenges faced and next steps

The major hurdle was to shift the whole offline medium of classes to online. Teaching and training every child, and keeping up their motivation to study online. Reaching out to all the centres too physically during these difficult times of a global pandemic to connect with and train teachers and students. For the successful conduction of classes, every day for 1 month the teachers and field executives were out in the communities risking their health to ensure training on online education and on-ground implementation of the program.Furthermore, the lack of availability of smartphones for the children, and laptops for the teachers have been a major hurdle in holding online sessions/classes.

Stories from the ground

One of the success stories of this program is of a young girl, Vanshika. She studies at a government school and aspires to be a very good teacher in the future. When asked as to why only a teacher, she replied, saying so that I can educate many more children and help them to have a better career. Vanshika initially lacked interest and confidence towards education as she was facing problems in learning and could not cope in class due to the same. also, she was troubled in her mind with the whole gender bias comments and behaviours of the society. Through the program, we not only helped her to bridge her learning gap, but also counselling with her family on the importance of education, and gender equality helped her in increasing her motivation towards education. Today, she is highly motivated to study, today she feels that studies are so important that she motivates other students to join the battle to eradicate illiteracy and motivate students to study, she especially is motivated to teach the girl child to get an education, so that she can not only secure her future, but also the future of her family.

A Fun Day- Everyday


report image

Sarthak prayas is running 10 remedial education centers for slum kids in Delhi/NCR. Every month we celebrate their birthdays and other festivals where we distribute snacks and gifts to them. Celebrating each moment of joy with your friends and family brings a sense of togetherness among kids. They learn sharing of things and thoughts and caring for others too.
These celebrations are basically the fun day for these kids -Fun with Learning. Material gifts motivates kids for regular attendance and stress free learning too.

This year we plan to make their each day a fun day. Special Sports items like football, Badminton and board Games like spellex and business were given to each child to ensure a new living a new life in this 2021.
We would like to extend our gratitude to you for your selfless support. It is only because of you that these kids are having their each day a Fun Day.

Provide joy of celebrating various events to children living in slums

Children are amazing explorers. They leave no chance to explore. Always energetic and keen to gain knowledge. They are enthusiastic to travel places and learn from others.
For the same zeal and keenness, Sarthak Prayas took its children on various places and events. Which they enjoyed a lot.
We took them on DMRC Museum, where they learned about various technologies and saw metro function of the city. Kids were surprised to know, how the metro works in the city and travels all day. Later, they had their lunch which they shared with each other.
We also had organised fitness program for the kids in which they were trained to do some yoga exercises and much more.
These kids went to the Croma Annual Event and had pretty good fun with learning and exploring the event.
Holi is a favourite and very fun festival, then how could that be left behind? Well, we held a holi celebration too and enjoyed a lot. Which was concluded with sweets and wishes?
