Education is a battle against poverty that everyone should fight’, but for the underprivileged children in India, education is perceived as a high-priced luxury. Since we believe that education can help children overcome poverty, we initiated Our Gully School to provide primary and secondary education to street and homeless children. They are majorly engaged in things like begging, waste picking, trolley pulling, selling intoxicants like cigarettes and tobacco etc. Some of them struggle for the survival of themselves as they are run away children.
Reaching out to homeless children and raising awareness about the importance of education is our main objective. In order to encourage their regular attendance, we invited various motivational speakers to share their achievements and how education played an important part in their lives in order to succeed.
