In April 2017 we were able to admit 10 kids to DPS Shiksha Kendra and 9 kids to Manas Primary School. Which is quite an achievement for us and we feel proud that we are able to bring our kids up to a level where they are able to clear the entrance tests.
The residents of the Harijan Basti are such a migratory population that it is hard to keep track of the inflow and outflow of the kids. I wish they would consider education a priority and plan their moves accordingly! Our teachers have a constant challenge of starting and re starting lessons to make sure all the kids are on the same plane. Kudos to their patience and determination!! Pushpa, Nisha and Mamta are doing a great job.
Nayi Disha will close for summer vacations on May 18th and re open in the first week of July. We will be having art and craft and computer classes during the vacations to keep them engaged and make them want to come back after the vacation.
