The Prem Dan children from the KG classes at the Garden School, Reay Road and Gita Nagar who pass the entrance tests are sponsored to attend local English Medium schools. The sponsorships contribute to the school fees, the books, the uniforms, medical assistance if needed and travel fees if needed. Successful ex-Prem Dan students take pride in remembering where they are from and regularly come back to help and support the organization.
The photographs below were taken at the home of one of the children from the Ambedkar Nagar slum located beside the posh South Mumbai residential area of Cuffe Parade.
The second set of photographs below are from a slum called Ganesh Murti Nagar. This area is a recent addition to our program. The slum is located close to Gita Nagar.
On receiving sponsorship, these same children are provided an opportunity to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. A few photographs of the sponsored children who are enrolled at local English medium schools are below.
