When working with our non-profit partners and children living isolated lives in orphanages and slums, we found that while they received a basic education, they lacked the opportunities to connect with their local communities, their peers and those who would be their mentors and champions. Rather than use resources to build new schools we used a small amount of funds to build Mobile Play and Learning Centers. Instead of requiring the children to travel to a new education center the Mobile units travel to where the children are now!
The Mobile units give these vulnerable children learning opportunities through play and STEM education.
After our pilot program which launched this summer, we will be expanding the program to include Pune and Mumbai with regularly scheduled visits to the places where children live; orphanages and slums.
