Initiation of the Project

Project Akshar, the first and the foremost segment of the initiative, was started in 2015.

Selection of children for the project

We survey children living in slum areas, traffic signals and various parts of the town and its outskirts under this project. It enables us to meet the children and their guardian, make them aware of the importance of education, understand their perspectives and problems and select some of those on the basis of predetermined criteria for the same. Most of the children selected are either those attending school negligently due to prevailing circumstances or ones not attending it at all. In surveys, children have generally been found to be investing their time in labour work, selling newspapers roadside, working on stalls, doing paid household chores and thus child labour.

Commencing with the education of selected children

Most of the chosen children lack the fundamental comprehension of elementary education and therefore are catered with regular learning sessions being conducted from Monday to Friday, two hours long by our volunteers at various demarcated centers. A pre-planned multidisciplinary approach is followed to cover the following subjects-Science, Mathematics, Sanskrit, Social science, English, Hindi and such others. Project Akshar has been able to aid about two hundred and forty children so far.
