Education and Training

Funding Partner : Sammohan Advertising and private donors  
Year : 1993-1995
A Non Formal Educational Centre was established in Hardasi Khera Village of Chinhat Block in Lucknow for imparting education and skill to girl and boys belonging to poor sections of the society. Two classes of almost 45 children each was taken by teachers. Hardasi Khera was known for its criminal, illicit country liquor and gambling. The children were the most neglected lot. Within a span of 3 years they picked up quite a lot of skills and knowledge. Highlight of the program was a special train ride for all the children who had incidentally never seen a railway track. Audio-Visual programs, education through puppets, magicians, etc were also up in special classes. Half of the children were admitted in regular schools. This project was self funded.
