Deepshikha

Deepshikha is the the campus teaching program of La Martiniere Girls College for children from disadvantaged backgrounds. These children are either from nearby slums or children of the school’s support staff. This program, an initative of the Gandhi Corner at LMGC, has been in operation for the last 40 years. Both boys & girls, aged 4 to 15 years are part of this program. Most of the children are part of a regular school program and Deepshikha aims to equip the weaker students with better understanding of key subjects such as Maths, English & Computers. On an average there are 50 children associated with this program. The children are taught by 9th & 11th standard students of La Martiniere after school hours and meritorous children are given scholarships for the year.
