Background: In the interior rural areas, education of children in expensive private schools is unaffordable by local communities. Consequently, they send their children to government schools. However, the attitudes of teachers there is a little indifferent and not very pro-active. To meet people’s demand for better education some committed teachers have started less expensive private schools in rural areas. Bogdhar village and Baddi slums have such schools. The school enrolls children from economically poor families from the rural areas. The focus of education here is on non-formal social aspects.

Work: The school wants the volunteers to add value to the teaching and improve on the pronunciation and grammar. The idea is to make education interesting and fruitful to children in age group 6-11 and prepare and encourage them to improve on their English for a better future.

Volunteers can impart information and educate
children on various issues like Teenage life,
adulthood, puberty, drug abuse, Violence, vices,
social media, freedom of speech and expression,

Living Alone, Relationships, Independence, social
life, fashion trends, personality development,
communication skills, talent and creative
interests. Volunteers can teach different games
and play international games like Volleyball,
Table Tennis and Badminton and other sports
which are prominent in different countries. Also, volunteers will get an opportunity to learn traditional Indian games like Kho-Kho, Kabaddi, Cricket, Lagorcha, Langdi and others.
