Poor or rich, childrens’ smiles and dreams are the same ! Pragati admits students of all ages, into level appropriate grades, even if they may be over age. As children of labourers and migrant workers, many have had a fractured education and Pragati gives them another chance to catch up on their education. 

Demographic profile of the students

Students come from economically weak backgrounds. They start schooling at varied ages, so their ages vary from 6-16 in our grades 1-5.
Family Income : Rs.5000/- to Rs.12,000/- per month ( approx $78/-$188)
Average Family Size : 6-8 members
Occupation of Parents : Daily wage earners, car cleaners, labourers, maids, security guards etc. Most of them are illiterate .
Living Conditions : Huts/ Shanties / single rooms of 8-10 ft dimensions for an entire family. Limited water and electricity, community or open air kitchens,community bathing areas and common or non-existant toilet facilities.

 Some Success Stories

Picture1 Picture2

We have regular health camps but sometimes we go the extra mile. As part of emergency health aid, Pragati arranged for the plastic surgery and post operational care of two of its school children, (age 5 & 9 years) who had severe burn injuries (20% and 30%) at the Batra Hospital. Senior surgeon, Dr. Rohit Nayar performed the surgery totally free of cost for the family. Both children have, since, recovered fully and are attending school regularly.
