Summary

Education on wheels [EOW] is an uniquely designed program which prepares slum children for formal education by taking the school to them. EOW is a well equipped bus with computers, TV and other essential education related materials. The idea is to motivate slum kids & their parents by providing good facilities, skilled teachers & innovative curriculum to bring kids up to 3rd grade school level in one year, preparing them for 3rd grade examination & enroll them into local 4th grade school.

Challenge

Access to education & learning environment are non existent in the slums. Poor parents don't have enough resources to send their children to formal schools. The children often end up doing domestic chores or get into rag-picking & other criminal activities. During the 1st quarter of 2018, the program was expanded to 2 more locations in Delhi by adding one more bus to the program. For the effective execution, continued funding support is very crucial to the project.

Solution

Currently, the EOW program is run in 4 slums providing Non-Formal Education to 200 children with the following key components: Monthly Parent-Teacher Meetings, Health Clinics, learning tests, Screenings of inspirational movies, Exposure Visits, Open Basic Education & Computer classes. Parents are sending their children to classes on time & actively taking part in parent-teacher meetings. Children are showing great sense of competitiveness among themselves by being punctual & scoring good marks.

Long-Term Impact

Sukarya is grateful to the overwhelming response of our esteemed donors for their support to EOW program. Two bus-schools have been bought & they are plying to four slums & 200 children. Parents & the community are extremely happy for this initiative & children are fully engaged & enjoying the learning process. Thank you GlobalGiving. We appeal for continued support so that these children won't be deprived of the opportunity to be educated & become the responsible citizens of tomorrow.
