CSSAR has been teaching slum children in Delhi since April 2008 and our education program targets children studying in classes I to X in municipal schools. Currently we teach 347 children in four slums namely Nangli Jalib, New Shyam Nagar, TC Camp Raghubir Nagar and SPM Camp Tagore Garden with exclusive teachers for each learning centre. Our teachers deliver individually-centered education to the pupils in regular school subjects and in Spoken English language. The program complements formal school education by filling in the gaps felt by students and parents alike, and thereby sustains the interest of children and their parents in formal education system. By attending classes in our learning center we also give children the confidence to not drop-out from their regular schools.

A Story from one of our Learning Centers:
NOW RANI CAN SPEAK ENGLISH
Rani aged 13 years, lives in house no. C-153, New Shyam Nagar Jhuggi, New Delhi. She studies in 10th std. in Govt. Girls Sr. Secondary School, Subhash Nagar in Hindi medium. Till March 2008 she was irregular in school and unable to do her home work properly. The reason being unsatisfactory level of teaching in her school. Her parents can neither teach her nor pay Rs.1000 monthly to a private tutor to improve her education level.
In April, 2008 CSSAR motivated Rani to join its remedial class. Since then she has been attending our remedial class regularly.
Now she is not only regular in school but is also able to do her homework properly. She also understands subjects better. She attends classes for two hours daily at our centre: one hour for math, science, social studies and another hour for spoken English. She has secured 66% in 9th Std. Now she can speak English well and she wishes to pursue studies at higher level as well.
This is the kind of positive impact we look for in all our learners, irrespective of age, caste or creed.
