Help Slum Kids Get Best Education Through Museums In Just Rs.935 Only.

An usual afternoon scene in a slum, throws an image of children playing around in the dirt and mud, and shouting abuses. Often left to fend for themselves by their illiterate working parents, these children have no interest in education, as they do not wish to get regimented into a regular routine. Instead, they learn odd skills to earn a rupee or two, take drugs and become criminals.

Now think the OPPOSITE !

Imagine slum children waiting to board a school bus, learning science by playing with various experiments, learning mathematics by throwing pebbles, history by seeing ancient statues, ornaments, coins, and a fun treasure hunt game helping them learn the cultures of various parts of India. Sounds unusual and fun, but that’s true. Parvarish – The Museum School is the first of its kind approach, to provide quality education to slum children through Museums and innovative ways.

The Museum School collaborates with Museums as centres for learning, matches the Museum exhibits and working models with curricula of different classes, and invites colleges conducting Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) courses for practice teaching by their B.Ed students.
Children from slums are picked up by school buses, and taken to the Museums every day. Using the exhibits as Teaching Aids for the subject, B.Ed students and Volunteers teach them various topics for different classes, through ideal teaching methodologies.

Functioning 6 days a week, and 11 months a year, for the past 10 years, ‘Parvarish’ as it is fondly called, has groomed the children to become responsible citizens. While many children have completed their schooling and started regular businesses, some of them are pursuing higher education in Engineering, Science, Pharmacy and Commerce. Some of them have taken up art forms as their career.
THE MUSEUM SCHOOL will begin its 12th academic session from 15 June 2016.

Not taking a penny from the children, the entire project is based on citizen's support, where each child's education is sponsored by a concerned citizen. You can do it too @ Rs 935/-per month only.
150 underprivileged slum children (5 - 17 years) are waiting for your support, to receive quality education, that will shape up their lives and future, and take them out of poverty.
We will share regular updates, and also the audited Utilisation Report at the end of every year.

you can help us raise funds for 45 children out of 150, equalling Rs 504450.

Dear Supporters,

With good wishes of all our donors and supporters, 2016-17 turned out to be a great year for Parvarish. The Museum School received UNESCO's Wenhui Award for Educational Innovation in Asia and the Pacific 2016. In a grand function held at Beijing (China) in November, Shibani received the Award from UNESCO APEID Head Mr Wang Libing. Mr Wang in his opening speech mentioned, that he was amazed to see The Museum School integrate and use Government Institutions like Museums to bring quality education to underprivileged children. Pradeep in his Keynote Address at the event, detailed the scale-up strategy of the model as Virtual Museum School.  

The Summers started with a Teachers Training programme for our Teachers. while children had their summer break. A 2-month Summer Camp was organised for the children, during which they learnt different art forms.  The Summer Camp concluded with the Annual Function of Parvarish, in which the students showcased their skills on the stage, in front of a huge audience.

Last year the children who appeared for Board exams came out with exceptionally good results. They nailed it by scoring distinctions. The  New  Session of The Museum School begins from 1st of July.
Wish The Museum School children will make you proud one day.

Thank you.

Dear Supporters,
We have some good news to share with you about the kids at The Museum School.

The MUSEUM SCHOOL was started in Mumbai, on 25th Feb 2017 by our partner Atmanirbhar Foundation Group.
It won the UNESCO's Award for Educational Innovation in Asia and the Pacific 2016. UNESCO evaluated Innovative projects from 58 countries, shortlisted 15 as Finalists, and declared 2 as Winners. The Museum School' from India, was one of them.

The students had appeared for their 10th and 12th boards earlier this year. When the results were out, the school faculty was overwhelmed with their performance as did exceptionally well. Below are a few pictures of their results.

Two students, who had completed their schooling here a few years back have now been recruited as teachers.

Thank you so much for the love and support.
