We at Ek Pahel believe that 'Quality Education' is a key to empower children and remove poverty in a single generation. With the aim to catalyze education among underprivileged children, we started a project called 'Prakashpunj'.

Activities Covered under the Project:

  • Impart free of cost high quality education to 525 underprivileged children and women at our primary school "Prakashpunj - Ek Pahel Pathshala" in Dayalbagh, Agra
  • Provide a healthy one time meal to the children and women
  • Distribute books, bags, bottles, uniforms, stationery, etc. to the students
  • Sensitize children and their families about the need and importance of education through nukad nataks
  • Sponsor higher education of high potential students who have passed out from our school
  • Organise physical education classes regularly
  • Organise activity/hobby classes for the students during vacations
  • One-to-one pyschological counselling of students by experts

The teaching methodology adopted by the teachers at Ek Pahel Pathshala is quite novel. Special emphasis is given on techniques in developing students' interest in studies.

Future Directions:

  • Improve the infrastructure of "Prakashpunj- Ek Pahel Pathshala" with special focus on:
  • Increasing the number of classrooms so as to run parallel classes for students of different age groups
  • Construct large play grounds
  • Construct hygienic washrooms
  • Start yoga classes for children
  • Facilities and equipments for outdoor sports
  • Arrange a van for providing pick and drop facilities to the students coming from far off places
  • Sponsor the education of more number of high potential students in good recognized schools
