SPOORTHI

All the activities taken up in Urban areas have been brought together under one umbrella called SPOORTHI. Activities like YAP (Youth Awareness Program), Free Learning Centre, General Awareness camps, Plantation drives, Blood donation camps and so on falls under this roof.

Our Free Learning Center in the slum area of Kancharapalem addresses child labour, school dropouts and motivates children from surrounding towards education and has been operating since Aug 2010. This is a 2:30 hrs. daily tuition for the students, from 1st to 6th standard from the surrounding areas. A paid tutor with experience as a teacher takes the classes to help the children with their regular class work. Tutor also creates interest in education through reading interesting books, playing games, teaching basic values and social conduct to the students. The students are encouraged to share their learning’s with their friends working as child labours and to invite them to the learning center, to educate their illiterate parents about the importance of basic cleanliness in the surroundings and health practices.

Currently there are 20 students that are getting benefitted by this program. The team leader of the activity pays regular visits to the center with other members to interact with the students, present videos and stories about inspiring individuals. We found the interest of the students to learn has increased a lot and expecting to have more children join us.
