The Nand Nagri Centre is in the vicinity of one of the largest resettlement colonies in East Delhi. The centre was set up for slum dwellers and offers community development programmes like educational program for children and several vocational training courses for youth. Classroom conditions have been enriched by providing more teaching aids to teachers. A library has also been setup as an additional facility for children.
Co-curricular activities aimed at nurturing the knowledge and talent among children are also a high priority for us. A year-long Activity Calendar has been devised and the Centre functions accordingly. The Calendar includes a host of activities, like celebrations of all important national festivals, painting & essay writing competitions, debates, educational tours and participation in youth & children activities . Music, drama, dance, folk songs, fancy dress competitions, street plays, making of greeting cards, pot painting etc. are some of the other activities also included for the holistic development of a child’s life.
The other major program at the centre is vocational training in the field of Beautician & craft; cutting and tailoring has emerged as one of the popular attractions for young girls as they can be trained on automatic machines later. All these activities are aimed at helping poor youth especially girls, to stand on their feet and earn supplementary income.
