Education

The Education Program focusing on English and Math now reaches out to 75 students who have been segregated on the basis of formal school standards. 

“When you begin reading, you begin with – A, B, C,” sang Julie Andrews and the impish Von Trapp children in the legendary film, The Sound of Music. We may not have the rolling, lush green hills but we do have as impish a bunch of kids beginning their first foray into the English language. For these kids, most of whom study in Hindi and Marathi medium schools and listen to no spoken English, it is a foreign language. And the learning, literally, begins with A, B, C.
