We are Down To Earth (DTE), a non-profit organization that engages with children, youth and women from humble backgrounds. The DTE team comprises of individuals that have a passion for catalyzing constructive change. DTE facilitates educational, sports, drama, life skills and livelihoods programs that enable individuals and communities to expand their potential.

A centre in the Cuffe Parade slum community in South Mumbai is a hub for our programs. Every weekday educational programs with an emphasis on English, Math and Life Skills are facilitated from 4pm to 8pm at the centre. Concurrently, we run a centre at the Colaba Municipal School in South Mumbai for the Std 5 students on weekday mornings.

On Saturdays, we have a sports program from 4pm to 7pm at the St Mary’s SSC School, Mazgaon. The sports program includes football, ultimate frisbee, athletics and traditional Indian sports. In tandem, the arts program has rehearsals for the annual performing arts event on Saturdays and Sundays from 4pm to 7pm at St Mary’s SSC School. The annual performing arts event this year is a musical slated for the first fortnight of December 09. The beauty of the sports and the arts program is that they bring together children from several Mumbai based organizations like Apne Aap, Prerna, Salam Balak Trust, Smile and of course DTE.
