Community Learning Centre, Addagutta

Yashoda Foundation has recently taken over an unused community building in Addagutta and has converted it to a Community Learning Centre for children and youth at risk with special emphasis on programs for girls and young women. We already have 150 girls and boys enrolled and started on a remedial education program.

The majority of the population in this slum are migrants working as daily wage workers, mechanics, auto drivers and maids with little or no access to even the basic amenities of life.

The Foundation has cleaned and partly renovated the decrepit centre and is running the following programs:

  • Early Child Education for 5 years and below
  • Bridge Schools for school dropouts between 6-14
  • Adolescent Education 7 Lifeskills for girls between 14-17
  • and Vocational Training for women and young girls

IMG_0767Our aim is to keep these children, adolescent girls and women off the street and engage them in meaningful education and train them to support themselves and their families respectably. 

We are looking for volunteers who can help us clean and renovate the centre, volunteers who can work with us to mobilise the community and run programs and volunteers who would be willing to donate new or used class room furniture and utilities. If you are interested in being part of this program, please get in touch with us by emailing gm@yashodafoundation.org
