We strongly believe that every kid has a right to education and with this initiative we want to strengthen basic learning skills for children from the age of 4 to 18 years by introducing them and teachers to the non-formal education methodology which uses tools like creative art, drawing, painting, games, paper art (origami), charts, music, singing, dancing, audio/video aid and other innovative activity based methods to enhance the understanding of kids towards the topic. We want to encourage creative thinking rather than just text book learning. At present we work with 7 educational institutes (private and public) along with a day care learning centre at nearby slum which has more than 70 kids visiting it daily.
