Dream a Difference team organized a day camp at a learning centre running for 64 slum children aged between 4-8 years from Marajpur village, UP and Ramprasth Juggi. The parents of these children work as rickshaw pullers, rag pickers and fruit and vegetable vendors and often times are unable to provide necessary education or nutrition support for their children. The learning centre provides regular classes to these children to prepare them to be mainstreamed to a MCD/Government school as well as to provide remedial classes so that they don’t drop out from these schools. This also ensures that while the parents are out to work for the daily living of the family, the children do not fall in nefarious company.
Our team as part of the day camp interacted with the children disseminating information to the children inculcating the importance of education for their future and their families. Nutritious food packets were also distributed to the children along with participation in the lessons imparted for the day.
