Jan Pragati Malesa Mau

JanPragati is a Charitable Trust registered under the Indian Trust Act 1882. Their Paathshala project focuses on providing education to the children in slums who have no access to education. The objective of this project is to promote education to the slum children through bridge schools within the community where the child resides. Pragati Paathshala is currently functioning in rag picker’s communities. The project was begun in 2011 with a handful of students. Currently there are approximately hundred children who are directly benefitted by the school. In 2013, eight students who excelled in their studies were admitted to a formal school in Lucknow. Malesa Mau is one of the slum locations under this project where we currently work with 50 of their children through our play based educational programme.
