SANKALP: A PROJECT FOR THE EDUCATION & REHABILITATION OF WORKING CHILDREN IN THE SLUMS OF INDORE CITY

USM started with ten non-formal education centers for working children in different slums of Indore city. At present 16 centers are functioning. All together there are 480 students under the guidance of 16 teacher animators, two field coordinators.

Due to financial constraints, many children of the families living the slums go for work the whole day to earn their daily bread, even though most of them are enrolled in the schools. Such children come to the center for study in the evening for two to three hours. According to each one’s standard they are helped to continue their study. Every year students are prepared for the exams in class in their respective classes. The children who have left the school are prepared for Board Examination in class10 and 12. Till April 2017, 168 working children passed Board exam of class X and XII.
