We are a group of people aiming to build an after school program aiming to help bridge the learning gap for a group of 50 students who live in Nehru and Navjeevan Camp slums of Govindpuri Delhi.
This is to be done with intensive outreach and evening classes to be taken every day.
These students struggle a lot matching up the academic pace and end up leaving education midway.
Our aim is to help bridge the learning gap and enable them to cope up with the grade level maths and language learning.
The funds are going to be used in setting up a learning centre in the slum(Govindpuri area) of Delhi.
Their are two major costs involved in setting up the project:
One time setup: Renting a room with basic amenities which has the capacity to accommodate 20 students and a teacher.
-3 computers(used) and 2 tabs.
-basic furniture, stationary
-Printer for printing student reports
-Monthly Rental(5k approx.)
-Cleaning, toiletries, outreach material
-Content Outsourcing for the initial 3 months and later capacity building in house.
-Monthly tea meeting with parents
-One part time teacher/helper(to be paid) along with the 2 members who will teach without any salary.
Services for students
-Pre assessment of their learning levels
-Using digital content to bridge the learning gaps
-Home work support, so that they don't have to go for tuitions (given, most of their parents can not help at home)
-Reach a utilisation of 100 students with 4 staff members and rotating shifts.
-We are going to charge a minimum fees of 100 Rupees/month from each child- this will help us in keeping the engagement level high and also making centre sustainable [As per our research with parents, this very well goes with the affordability of a family residing in urbam slums)
The plan is to utilise funds to setup and keep the centre running for 6 months, till it becomes self sustainable.
