Education on Wheels is an innovative project which operates on a bus. The project provides educational support to 6 to 14 year old children from Chitpur slum and the surrounding areas in North Kolkata, who are either already going to school or who will be enrolled. Remedial coaching classes are provided to children with learning gaps. This facilitates their proper development, enabling them to reach their full educational potential and thereby attain good jobs, contribute to society, and look forward to a life free of poverty.
Children who have never been to school or who have dropped out of education are motivated and enrolled in formal school. Different strategies are adopted to ensure the children remain in school and continue their education.
In addition to this, the new Community Support Group is being provided with information on children’s education as well as other issues. This ensures their positive involvement in developing a community for the betterment of children.
