A world where every child develops their potential to lead a dignified life.
To create positive, meaningful learning experiences for marginalised children and enable them to break the cycle of poverty through education.
Migrations to big cities are one of distress, not choice – individuals and families are pushed out of their villages in rural India by drought and debts. Conditions in cities are harsh.
Access to Health is poor. And so is access to Education.
Children from these communities are unable to attend schools at destination site, due to multiple reasons from physical access to learning deficits and cultural barriers. Even if attending school, non-learning in under-resourced Government schools is a problem. It leads to poor school outcomes and ultimately dropouts.
6 million children (MHRD 2014) are out of primary school in India and 47 million teenagers (15-17 years) are out of lower secondary school
In a modern economy, this only perpetuates the cycle of poverty for the family. We argue that this is as much of an urban crisis as it is a rural one.
Each interconnected program in our portfolio supports the marginalised child in her journey through formal schooling, making it more effective.
Gubbachi Connect (7-10-year-olds) is our flagship programme, designed to enable the integration of out-of-school children and dropouts into mainstream schooling.
Gubbachi Buds (3-6-year-olds) engages with the younger siblings of children in Connect, by keeping them safe and making them school ready.
Gubbachi ProActive (10 -16-year-olds) fast tracks adolescent dropouts and moves them towards successful Grade 10 school completion.
Gubbachi Transform (6-8-year-olds) supports foundational literacy and numeracy instruction in the Nali Kali programme of Grades 1-2-3 in under- resourced Government Schools.
The School Learning Programme (SLP) addresses learning regressions in older children enrolled in Grades 4-7 in Government Schools, providing them with quality subject instruction and foundational skills where required.
Gubbachi Enable is the overarching programme that provides a range of support to marginalised communities in the city, from case-based family work to enabling access to healthcare, identity documents, and welfare benefits.
