Sponsor a fun event, learning activity or festival celebration at Saath Balghar for approx 30 children., INR 1700

SAATH (Initiatives for Equity in Development) has facilitated participatory processes that improve the quality of life for the urban and rural poor since 1989. Its single-stop, integrated services reach over 100,000 slum dwellers and underprivileged children in Ahmedabad, and many more in Gujarat and Rajasthan.

How It Works

• Balghars provide pre-school education and nutrition support to underprivileged children from the slums of Ahmedabad, between the age group of 3-5 years.
• The children spend the day in a class of up to 30 children with a teacher.
• The curriculum has been specially designed for them with the help of expert child psychologists in collaboration with teachers to improve and strengthen the quality of pre-school education components.
• The teachers go through training at regular intervals, be it in RTE, child development or new teaching methods.
• They are taught in the Montessori method.

The Statistics

• In the year 2014-15, through 7 preschool centres 242 children passed out and 188 were enrolled into formal schooling.

Make a day special for migrant children
Mantassa Ayubhai Sheikh, called Alfeena with love at home, is 10 years old, is a resident of Ronakpark, Juhapura. She was left at the hospital by her real mother right after her birth and was then adopted by Kausar Shaikh. Her step father, Ayub Shaikh is a driver.
Our Balghar teachers regularly met with parents in the area and when they met parents of Alfeena they expressed their concern regarding her behaviour. They told our Balghar tutors that Alfeena was stubborn and wasnot able to express herself properly. It was through the constant joint efforts of our Balghar tutors and her parents that helped her develop both mentally and physically.
Balghar helped her change from a coy girl to a jovial child. Alfeena has a sharp mind and the practical learning at the Balghar has helped a lot in her development. She is currently in the third grade and is doing considerably well. I am very grateful to Balghar for making my daughter what she is today.
