Formal Literacy and Post-Literacy Classes are run by Deep Griha Society, covering classes from 4th - 7th Standard.
Illiteracy is a widespread problem throughout poor areas of India, so this of course includes our marginalised communities. Many children and adults never receive the opportunity to receive formal literacy classes and have learned to cope without knowing how to read and write.
Deep Griha empowers these people from the poor communities by providing them with a place to learn, study and socialise with their peers.
As part of this programme, we also arrange entertainment and day trips, such as picnics and educational tours, to increase self-confidence in our students.
In addition to education, all children enrolled on the Literacy or Post-Literacy classes receive educational materials, medical care and nutrition, in the form of one basic meal per day.
Creative English Classes
To encourage younger children to develop their creativity and basic English skills, our volunteer lead Creative English classes run every Wednesday between 12:30 and 14:00 at Tadiwala Road Community Centre.
These classes allow children between the ages of 4 to 10 years old to learn how to use different materials and artistic techniques to create work which they can then take home. Basic English writing and speaking skills are integrated into some of the activities to assist children to learn and practice English through play.
