Formal & Non Formal Education.

BAPU believes that there is no instant solution for children who have been denied their right to education. However, we are charged with the imperative that there is no higher priority, no mission more important, than that of education. Education of children at BAPU has to be need-based and demand-driven. To fulfill these criteria, the organization employs various schemes of educational intervention, both formal and non-formal. Wherever possible, the objective is to bring children into mainstream education. The overriding goal, though, is to help children develop into informed, capable, and responsible citizens of our nation and the world. To these ends we variously engage with formal and non-formal education.
Formal Education
Ideally, BAPU would like to channel every child into mainstream education. Formal education enables children to interact with their peers from diverse backgrounds. It also helps instill a sense of accountability, positive competition and the desire to excel. BAPU children are admitted into both, private and government schools of repute. So far, the organization has been able to mainstream approximately 500 children in various classes.
Non-Formal Education
Non-formal education at BAPU takes care of children's individual educational needs. The primary goal of this program is to motivate and prepare children to gain admission into formal school. Also it imparts life skills to cope-up with their circumstances. The non-formal education focuses on interesting and interactive learning through a participatory approach. A wide range of techniques are employed under the program, including painting, games, story, telling, songs, quizzes, dancing etc.
