Study Hall Foundation
Project KHEL has partnered with various programmes of one of the foremost educational initiatives of Lucnow, the Study Hall Foundation. At their Non-formal Education Centers (NEC) whose main objective is to impart quality education to children with a special focus on reaching the underserved parts of the population, Project KHEL has been conducting sessions with the children who are from slums. We have partnered with SHF for NECs in Gomti Nagar – namely, Lohiya, Ujariyaon and PatelpuramSituated. Project KHEL engages with some of these children in what is perhaps their first experience of organized games.
Project KHEL had also partnered with the SHF for conducting MiM sessions with classes 4 and 5 at Prerna Girls School in the past. This school extends quality education including sports and co-curricular activities to over 600 girls from the neighboring slums and communities. Compelled by their circumstances, many of them work in houses as domestic help.
At present we engage with children at SHF’s Gomti Nagar Railway Station NEC through our weekend volunteering programme.
