Community Learning Centre – Uttariah Basti
The 20 year old Uttariah Basti is located in the heart of the Secunderabad Cantonment. It is home to over 500 migrant families from Kurnool, West Godavari, Mahboob Nagar, Nalagonda and Warangal who work as garbage pickers, domestic helpers and daily wage labourers.
The Uttariah Basti, which has over 500 temporary huts, has no access to electricity, health services, running water or sanitation.
The elder children attend the Mutford Government School while children below 6 attend the local anganwadi centre.
Our aim is to work with the community leaders and the families to provide remedial education to the children and train the families in alternate livelihood skills. We also plan to hold medical camps to provide basic healthcare to the residents.
Our Community Learning Centre will act as a bridge school and a tuitions centre for the primary and the secondary students.
