Agrasar Bachpan

Our Approach

In our community-based learning centres we teach children aged between 5 and 12 who do not attend regular schools due to a variety of reasons, and help them to reach age-appropriate learning levels in order to eventually mainstream them into formal schools. Our approach is based on the holistic development of children, setting the foundation that will enhance their academic performance and skill acquisition for a brighter future. Our teachers focus on childrens' affinity for continuous education and overall personality growth. In doing so, they also engage the students’ parents and secure their support for the children’s success.

Children from underprivileged communities do not go to schools due to lack of opportunity, accessibility or motivation. We are trying to create opportunities and develop affinity towards education in them. Developing life-skills and enhancment of learning ability in children-at-risk is the problem we are determined to solve, with your support, to reach out and spread the smiles.

Our Impact

How We Do It

 

We teach 1000 children over 4 locations in Gurugram, Mathura and Bathinda every year. More than 100 out-of-school children have been mainstreamed over last 2 years.

 

Latest round of ‘Impact Assessment’ is Under Process. Shall be updated by 15 November 2017.

In the month of September

Like every year, Teachers' Day 2017 was celebrated with a lot of enthusiasm. The day began with the students coming dressed as their teachers with cards and gifts in their hands. The students enacted their teachers and took classes for the fellow students, only to discover the difficulty of handling a class. The celebration continued with the teachers playing games like Hoopla and enacting one another. Dance and music added to the merry- making.

With the change in season, diseases like Dengue and Typhoid become wide spread in Gurugram, especially in the communities we work. In order to take precaution, a Vaccination camp was organised in Islampur in Collaboration with Max India Foundation.

The students of Sikanderpur centre visited a public park. We try to take the students out regularly to provide them an opportunity to get out of the classrooms and engage in sports in a little structured manner. The children played Kabaddi and were thrilled by the swing ride. These outdoor activities help the children in improving coordination, balance, posture and flexibility. Even the teachers had a great fun in playing with the kids.

My parents always wanted me to do a job "suitable for girls". However, I always had different dreams! When I joined Agrasar as a community mobiliser in 2014 I was eager to take up more and more challenges even though I was hesitant to communicate with people. Guidance and support provided by my seniors always motivate me to do my best. Now, I have no hesitation in talking to anybody :)
