Agrasar Bachpan

Our Approach

We run community based learning Centres where we enhance the education attainments of children who are out of the mainstream school system. The goal is to bring them up to age-appropriate levels so they can join the formal school system. Agrasar focusses on the holistic development of the children enrolled in its learning centres, building a strong foundation for life-long learning. The teachers facilitate skill development to enhance children's personalities, their academic performance, and their outlook towards the future. The centres work in close partnership with the parents, to ensure their support in encouraging their children and reinforcing learning at home.

Children from underprivileged communities do not go to schools due to lack of opportunity, accessibility or motivation. We are trying to create opportunities and instill a love for learning in them. With your support, we are determined to reach out and develop life skills and enhance learning attainments in children who are at risk.

Our Impact

How We Do It

Tidings from the field

This Independence Day, we celebrated the power of courage, truth and development in communities we work with and in the nation as a whole. The Chief Judicial Magistrate of Gurugram, Mr. Narender Singh, graced the occasion and appreciated the efforts of children, their parents and our team for their role in nation building.

Across all our Learning Centres, the teachers gave extra classes, did counselling of the parents and the children, met the Principals of the schools which were identified for getting our students enrolled, made sure that the students appear for the admission process along with their parents, ensured that they have all the required documents and went to the school with them at the time of admission.
Due to the combined efforts of the teachers, the students and parents, around 100 children from Agrasar Bachpan have been mainstreamed this year in formal schools, both Govt. and Private, in Gurugram. We are expecting a few more to get enrolled in schools in the next month.

We celebrated World Environment Day with the students by planting some seeds.
The children wanted to see their 'plants' grow, before they leave for their respective villages in their summer holidays which start from the 15th June.
So our teachers bought 'jaun ke beej' (Barley seeds) and the children were happy to sow the seeds.
Now they are excited to closely observe their plants' growth for next 10 days.

My family always wanted me to do a job "suitable for girls". However, I always had different dreams! When I joined Agrasar as a community mobiliser in 2014 I was eager to take up more and more challenges even though I was hesitant to communicate with people. Guidance and support provided by my seniors always motivate me to do my best. Now, I have no hesitation in talking to anybody :)
