"Door Step School" is an NGO which was started with the aim of addressing literacy amongst the marginalized sections of society. The organisation built its program to address three major problems viz. Non-Enrollment, Wastage and Stagnation.
Door Step School working since 1989 provides education and support to the often-forgotten children of pavement dwellers, slum dwellers, construction site families and many other underprivileged families. Many of these children are not enrolled in school and have limited access to books and a place to study. Additionally, many children drop out of school to work or care for younger children. With neither support nor resources at home some children also suffer from very low learning levels. We are trying to bridge this gap by bringing education to the "Door Step" of these underprivileged children. Door Step School's flagship project, School on Wheels takes education to doorstep of the street children through a mobile classroom.
The funds raised through SCMM 2016 will be used to run the various interventions of Door Step School in Slum communities, Municipal schools and School on Wheels. Out of the total raised amount 75% will go in supporting educational interventions of Door Step School and remaining 25% will go in the General donation fund for emergency expenses of the organization. The General fund will help Door Step School to sustain its programmes in the event of crunch of funds or sudden unanticipated situation of funding from any donor for a particular programme. In case of an emergency Door Step School can have funds in the reserve to fall back on in the interim period.
