Creche/balwadi teachers training programme- a one year training course, recognised by SNDT University wich enables youngsters to take up jobs in the field of education upon completion of the course.
Over the years our staff has developed considerable expertise in puppetry, low cost teaching aids, street theatre and other activites related to art and craft. We conduct eorkshops inthese areas and also on child care in general.
Adolescent group project
Recognising that a child is at his most vulnerable to external temptations during the adolescent years, we undertake to help such children. By motivating them to study further/providing them with vocational traininig, we attempt to keep them from joining the work force and picking up bad habits that will jeopardise their futures.
