Quoting--For twenty years I have served in various roles as teacher, guidance counselor, principal, college instructor, and consultant in public education. During that time I have participated in experimental projects for educational change, seen theories of education come and go, and read most of the current books on educational reform.
Among all the books I have read, Education for Life stands out as that rare pedagogical phenomenon: a book both refreshingly original and wholly workable.

Almost 60 million primary school-aged children aren’t in school, according to the United Nations. Some of them, girls especially, have to stay at home to help take care of siblings and collect water; others have to go to work to help support their family; some live too far from the nearest school; others can’t afford to pay for school fees or buy a uniform.
These children are not getting the basic education they need to become empowered adults who can support their families and their communities out of poverty.
The organisation was founded on the belief that quality education is the undeniable right of every child and that children should not be deprived of this just because they do not have access to it or the resources to realise their dreams.

“Door Step School” was established in Mumbai, India in 1988 and later expanded in Pune in 1993 with the aim of providing literacy to the marginalised sections of society. The organisation built its program to address three major problems:
Door Step School provides education and support to the often-forgotten children of pavement dwellers, slum dwellers, construction site families and many other underprivileged families. Many of these children are not enrolled in school and have limited access to books and a place to study. Many children also drop out of school to work or care for younger children. With neither support nor resources at home, some children also suffer from very low learning levels.

Education is the biggest aspiration of the poor. Despite lacking the means to consistently eat full meals, consume clean drinking water or use a toilet, India's poor prioritize their children's education. They often take high interest loans from the moneylender to send their children to private school as they view the government schools as insufficient. They perceive education as both the means and the ends to building a better life. Education does empower individuals to improve his/her own situation by putting them in a position to earn and provide for their family. Children are the future of any country, and for a country like India, this is especially true. Developing the education, awareness and talents of underprivileged children is the key to the progress of the entire nation.
For many underprivileged children in India education is a luxury that they cannot afford. Poverty plays a key role in taking away this opportunity from them and many a times their location and lack of transport facilities also plays spoiler. Or, most of the times they drop out of schools and take up odd jobs as child labourers to support their family financially. This is where NGOs and the government should step in to help! While we are aware that the government has come up with many schemes promoting education amongst underprivileged children in India, they should also promote vocational training equally that will help them receive a skill for employment in the future.
We develop projects allowing people living in developing regions to protect their environment and prevent climate change, all the while improving their living conditions.
Environmental awareness & education. Supporting the sustainable development of underprivileged populations.

It is the only school of its kind in Varanasi providing quality education to children from poor families from pre-nursery thru 12th grade.

In 2003, a close family member of one of us - a teacher at a Government school in Chennai, India - asked for financial help for her school so that they could construct a kitchen for their free lunch program. We were able to help the school with this request, and figured that more schools like this one would need help as well. We continued working with the Jaigopal Garodia Foundation that ran this particular school, to help this school, and found other schools like it that needed help. Fundraising among family and friends led to the need to formally register OPEN as a non-profit organization in the US, and eventually in India.

The children's initiative Plant-for-the-Planet is initiated
by 9-year-old Felix Finkbeiner.
Inspired by Wangari Maathai, who planted 30 million trees in Africa in 30 years, Felix formulated his vision:
Children could plant one million trees in every country on earth and thereby offset CO2 emissions all on their own, while adults are still talking about doing it. Each tree binds a CO2 intake of 10 kg per year.
The first tree is planted and Klaus Töpfer, former German Federal Minister of the Environment and executive director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) becomes official patron.
Felix promises UNEP that children in every country on earth will plant one million trees. In the following years, Plant-for-the-Planet developed into a global movement.
Every second child in India cannot read at her grade level.1
This immense reading deficit comes from a variety of reasons, an important one being the dearth of reading material beyond textbooks in school. Without easy access to books in their mother tongue languages, children struggle to learn to read and practise their reading skills.
Since 2004, we have been creating engaging storybooks in multiple languages and formats to help children discover the joy of reading – in languages they can understand, set in locations they can recognise, featuring characters with whom they can identify, and telling stories that capture their attention and fuel their imagination.
Our books delight and enchant children, taking them on adventures and introducing them to new worlds.
Our mission is to see ‘a book in every child’s hand’. And here’s how you can help us do that.
As a parent, it’s your job to protect your child. Becoming acquainted with common and hidden hazards in your home and community can help you take important safety steps now to prevent a tragedy later.
