|School in Nirman Nagar|
The school in Nirman Nagar is serving two slums: a slum very near to the school (a few minutes on foot), and another one some kilometers further on. Students from the second slum are being transported to and from the school by auto rickshaws. As the attendance of children from this second slum fluctuates greatly, The Wisdom Academy will soon start giving classes inside the slum. Hopefully, providing education closer by home will increase the number of students going to school daily.
The children who started attending classes a few months ago are beginning to learn the basics of the ‘serious’ school subjects. As almost all students never went to school before, it’s a daily challenge to have them settled into the routine and structure of the class. Coming to school on a regular basis, sitting still, listening, learning good manners, and taking interest in studies; it all takes a lot of time before the actual studying can start.
