Chalta Firta School - If the child can't come to school, the school would come to the child.
Samridhdhi Trust identifies out of school children mostly among migrants in the city, who along with their families are engaged in menial labour. The children are convinced to enroll in Samridhdhi Bridge Education Projects for one year. After one year they are admitted to mainstream schools and supported with After School Program till they complete their education and gets settled in their chosen careers!
In 9 years, Samridhdhi Trust could identify 4000+ Out of School Children in 3 cities, Bangalore, NCR and Pune. The first batch of students are working as Entrepreneurs, Professional - Dancers, Sales and Marketing, Engineers!
The children live in scattered communities in temporary settlements so transport arrangement is very crucial to bring Education to them!
A bus is the most crucial requirement. As of now, rental buses are being used for ferrying these children which is getting very expensive day by day. Hence it has been proposed to own a bus which would greatly cut down the hefty rental expenses. A second-hand bus in good condition costs about 10L. This bus would be used exclusively for ferrying the children from their slum communities to their school & vice versa.
Please help us to buy a bus & take education to their doorstep!
