About the Project
I have always been interested in contributing to a community service project to help poor and disadvantaged children. During my summer vacation July-August 2011, I will be taking a lead in setting up a learning center for poor girls in a slum at Bhilai Township in Chhattisgarh, India. Having set up the learning center, I will also conduct a two month educational program on teaching English language and basic computer skills to the group, to get the learning center started. At the end of two months, the children will be evaluated to measure the impact of the program. A local NGO, Sandhan, managed by Prof D N Sharma, has volunteered to help me identify the first batch of needy people and to help with the logistics. In terms of specific details, the address of the building where the project will take place is Maan Mankinamma Vyam Shala, Shantipara, Camp-2 (Tatpatti Mohalla),Ward-22, Bhilai.
