VIDYA VISTAR - DELHI
KALI BARI MARG
On a walk from Vidya Vistar Gole Market and in an attempt to affect the maximum number of underprivileged children across the country, Sarvahitey came across a huge slum settlement in Kali Bari Marg and was apprised of the abhorrent condition of education among the children there. That's when the idea of conception of a new project came in the minds of the members of the NGO.
As the Vidya Vistar Gole Market project was running at a stable pace and a handful of volunteers were surplus in the project, the entire project was set up in a matter of days. And the enthusiasm of the children at Kali Bari Marg was a great incentive for the volunteers to take interest in setting up a new project.
Thereafter, the model followed at VV Gole Market was applied to the new project, and in no time, the volunteers and the kids were enjoying the company and education 6 times a day, including classes on 3 weekdays, and the eagerness of the children studying there just enhanced the quality of the project. Now we are teaching more than 50 children on each of those days on a regular basis. These are the kids of daily wage earners who have migrated over the years, and somehow came to inhabit this piece of land which was given the status of a slum eventually.
As a lot of kids are already enrolled in government schools nearby, they showed much eagerness to learn that which they should have learnt at school. Therefore, both, the volunteers and the kids now look forward to our classes, to be taught, to be involved in extra-curricular activities and cultural and educational trips across Delhi.
