Help 195 slum area children studying roadside in open area school...


Hi, I am Sushil Meena, I work as a Senior Section Engineer in Indian Northern Railways. After job timings, My friends and I, who all working professionals, run a small school for poor children of jhuggi jhopris. We take evening classes for children who don't go to school. These are either school dropouts, or working children who have never studied. 
We are trying to educate them nevertheless by providing free course books, notebooks, drawing and craft books,  stationery items,  and make sure they don't fall sick by providing free medical facilities. We also provide clothes and food for them. We are happy to say that around 195 students at our four road side study centers and around 100 more from nearby area are studying under our guidance. 

Earlier, we use to teach them in an open park nearby their homes where their parents can easily keep an eye on them. Initially, few months were very distracting and brought severe loss of studies to these students due to the weather conditions like rain and thunderstorms etc. They can bear the heat but whenever the park gets filled with water, they have nowhere to study.  (See video below)
You can see in the video that park was full of bushes but these children were very particular and regular about their studies. Their enthusiasm for studies and meeting us compelled us to do more for them. They see hope in us and we don't want to disappoint them. 
Also, the Roadside place, where these children study, it was filled with bushes and garbage and lot many insects were there. Also, People drink and play cards at night and at morning human excrete can easily be found in the area where these children study. And during study hours whenever a strong breeze comes, it takes away their sheets, papers, boards etc. In rain, water fills within the place. 
Therefore, to combat this issue, we brought flyash blocks and laid them temporarily over soil of the park so that even if it rained, the studies didn't have to stop. Children were so exited that they even decided to pitch in.

However, about a fortnight later, we had to vacate that place due to presence of insects and animals due to rain.
For now, I have cleaned the area with the help of my team and these children and made a small open study center roadside, but it will grow again. These children have to daily clean the area before studying.
 We have provided them dress, course related Books, Notebooks and basic stationery items etc. We also provide them food once in a week and milk on a daily basis.
I want to build a small place for them with  basic flooring and a tin roof so their studies become weatherproof. The children's parents are labourers and are ready to work without wages in their free time. We just need funds to buy the construction material and wages for few outsourced supervisors and machinery. These road side places are located at Indirapuram, Vasundhara  in Ghaziabad.
Also, winter has come and they do not have enough clothes to combat the weather. So, I also want to provide them sweaters, mats, blankets and other clothes.
 For now they just need a school like environment. And I want to raise funds for them so that I can modify their study center in which they can build a better study like environment. We need funds for:
1. Building a small place requires Teenshade/Tirpal/ Boundarywall for approx 300 sq yard costing about 80000/-
2. Winter Clothes for 200 children - 70000/-
3. Dari/ Mat for sitting - 10000/-
4. Stationery and other learning resources for these children - 90000/-(approx)
  Here ,number of students is increasing day by day but we have estimated the amount as per their current no. of students.
Support me and my friends in providing them a little better environment to study where they can concentrate better.
 I request you all to contribute whatever you can for this good cause. If you all will help I have more children in line ready to study at our centres. Please help these children.
Regards
Er. Sushil Kumar Meena
