We are running a school-like teaching program called “Dhanak Paathshala” for primary classes in Vasundhara for underprivileged children where we are making sure that no child in the area is illiterate. We have hired teachers and work with volunteers to survey, admit and teach children in the region. Classes are from 9 AM to 1 PM with subjects ranging from Mathematics, Hindi, English, EVS, Crafts, Games, Music and Dance.
Currently, the school has 80+ students studying in grades KG to 5th.
Dhanak also sponsors the education of children by paying there school tuition fees and by providing them books to study. Currently, Dhanak has around 35 students under its umbrella and more will be joining soon this session.
We want to thank our various volunteers from across India who is sending us donations for sponsoring these children as a result of which many students are able to continue their studies and have scored appreciable marks this year and we hope they will continue to do so for next session also.

Along with teaching the students basic subjects, we indulge them in various extracurricular activities for there overall development. We organize art competitions and celebrate festivals like Diwali, Christmas, Bhai Dooj and Rakhsha Bandhan also teaching them about these festivals along with it. We also show them inspirational movies like “I AM KALAM” to motivate them to believe in themselves. We organize special events on various international days like Environment day and Yoga day to spread awareness among them.

We teach students about the importance of growing trees and keeping their locality clean and healthy. This International Environment day we planted around 80 trees in our nearby areas with the help of these children and our Dhanak team members. We have also taken a pledge to plant trees every day in our area and we have planted around more than a hundred trees until now and hope to continue this in the future.
