From Children’s voice:

Harika, a student of class 6th told, “my parents never sent me to any coaching class, because of financial constraint, but fortunately, I got the chance and benefited a lot from this free coaching programme, now I am able to compete with my other friends, and stood 2nd position in my class.

Kumar, a student of Class 5th shared his experience, “I was an irregular student in my class, I enjoyed playing street games in school hours, but after the Didi’s(Education center Teacher) repeatedly approach (motivation), I am now a regular and good student”.  

Bhavani, a student of class 6th shared her experience, “I thank to the teacher of our Education center, who has personally taken care of my study and I am now a meritious student in my Basti(Slum) and my mother is proud of me”.

Sukanti, a student of Class 5th told, “I was afraid of mathematics, now, in the last annual Exam. I got 68 marks out of 100, I am happy now”.

After 2 years 4 months managing the programme, the programme is handed over to the community, i.e. Slum Education Committee to manage the education centers out of their contributions. As they realized the benefits of these education centers to their children, we expect they will manage it seriously. But still out of 14 Education centers, 7 centers successfully handover to the community.


We are very much thankful to the donors, who supported this programme and the community who has taken the ownership of the pogramme. The progress of the community managed Education centers will be uptodated regularly through Shakti Website for information of all supporters. It can be viewed at
