Project Description

Door Step School, located in Mumbai and Pune was founded in 1988. The organization addresses three main problems related to education of underprivileged children, non-enrollment (children who cannot go to school for financial reasons), wastage (when children drop out from school) and stagnation (low quality of education for even those who persevere). Door Step runs balwadis as the first step towards enrollment, non formal education centers for children out of school, community libraries to improve reading and comprehension skills, and study classes - to help children enrolled in schools. In addition, the organization also has computer classes and reference libraries.

Door Step School requires the operating expenses (driver salary, fuel costs and maintenance) of a Tata Winger van. The vehicle is used to transport primary school children from urban slums or construction site labour camps to the nearest municipal corporation school.

Purpose / Goals

Improve safety, reduce dropout rate and thereby improve attendance rate.

Organization Description

Door Step School provides education and support to the often forgotten children of pavement dwellers, slum dwellers, construction workers, etc. -
