Shikhshaangans (Free Coaching Centres for the Needy Underprivileged Students): We run five such centres at present. One in Thane, two in Rabale ,one in New Panvel and the fifth one in CBD Belapur. We will be starting our sixth Shikshaangan shortly.

We generally have two teachers at a unit if the number of students start reaching more than 30 students. The students who attend are right from the 1st standard to the 10th standard. If we are not able to provide a second teacher, then we try to help the senior students by providing financial assistance to attend private coaching.

During non-school hours the underprivileged children are coached by appointed instructors.  In these Shikhshaangans along with covering the school syllabus, emphasis is also placed on imparting to the children skills such as — Spoken English, Public speaking, Confidence building measures, etc. We celebrate different functions with the children – such as Independence Day, Diwali, New Year, Christmas, Shivaji Jayanthi, Birthdays of well-wishers etc. We also gift various necessary items to the children (shoes, story books, note books, schools bags, dresses, creative toys etc.).

The idea is to help the children to build up a strong base so that they are able to well when they reach higher classes. The children from these Shikshaangans will supported by our Trust, to the extent possible, financially till they graduate. 

We will soon be starting  our sixth Shikshaangan.

Along with academics, we interact with the students indifferent ways. An example — On the 13th of May 2019, we took the children of the different Shikshaangans in two buses on an educational trip to Nehru Science Centre. A fantastically educative trip indeed it was. The purpose of inculcating a spirit of scientific enquiry amongst the children was served.
The simple experimental demonstration by Saurabh, Tushar and team was a great success in making the students ask questions and start thinking. The team also did a great job while explaining the film on our Solar System. The children later saw a 3D film about life on our Earth.
A full day visit to the Centre is a must for all school students.  The Management of the Centre was very kind to waive off all the charges ( Entrance and Films) as the children were from the underprivileged section. All the participants were given experimental kits from the centre as gifts.
