Every Child Counts – Many miles to go.. many smiles to see

Door Step School’s efforts to reach and enroll all children at the right age into schools continues into its third year.

Launched as a Citizens’ Campaign, this program has Volunteers

a) surveying their neighborhood or chosen localities
b)locating children of school-going age ( 4-8 yrs) at construction sites or other dwellings
c) counselling the parents and
d) helping the parents enroll their wards in the nearest Government School.

Having reached over 3000 children in 2 years since 2012, this year, with the support and encouragement of many Organizations and Volunteer groups, we have decided to spread the reach to Pimpri Chichwad as well as fringe areas of Pune such as Talegaon, Chakan, Hingewadi, Pirangut and Wagholi.

Volunteers, sometimes working with our field staff and sometimes working independently, have helped survey many areas .

More than 900 sites have been surveyed and over 3000 children reported.
This only reiterates the findings of a recent Unesco report that 1.4 Million children in India are out-of-school .

This also strengthens our resolve to do our bit to reach as many of these children as we can … 300 children have been enrolled so far…we need all the hands that we can get to fulfill the challenging goal of reaching such a large number of children.
