Apna Skool
Project Location Kanpur
Project Strategy Through their network of 25 Apna Skools at brick kilns and construction sites in Kanpur, the organization reaches out to over 600 children in Grades 1 to 5. In addition to teaching them, the project also evaluates the children on the basis of an end-of-year examination administered by NIOS ( National Institute for Open Schooling), thus ensuring that the children are evaluated on the same platform as children from formal schools. Wherever possible, the organization tries to admit their students into mainstream schools. Even after that, the organization continues to monitor the progress (academic and otherwise) of their former students, arranges for transportation, and takes care of their fees and other related expenditure.
