For the last 3-years, Diya Ghar has been changing the lives of the migrant community in Bangalore by providing pre-school education for children of laborers in a nurturing environment. Along with this foundational Montessori education, our children are given two wholesome meals a day and safe transport from their settlements to school and back. So far, 400 little ones have “graduated” from Diya Ghar and joined elementary schools in Bangalore or back in their villages.
What did we do when schools were closed during Covid-19?
As the children can’t meet together at the pre-school premises due to Covid-19, Diya Ghar’s committed teachers go into their tent settlements with books, coloring sheets, and warm smiles.
Now our teachers record the lessons and send them to the children on a daily basis. We create learning kits for the children to use at home. These include a table, floor mat, study material, and stationery kit, among other items.
Your contribution via our concert: A Special Wish - will go towards providing access to stimulating and nurturing pre-school education to these children.
