Jagriti Bal Vikas Samiti

by on February 20, 2012

I visited Jagriti Bal Vikas Samiti with Prof. Mahendra K. Verma of the Physics Department at IIT Kanpur. Jagriti is an organization working for children’s education and welfare. It runs schools for underprivileged children and works towards their social & economic development. It attempts to develop an effective and meaningful academic and vocational curriculum, educational materials and teaching kits for primary schools, in addition to training teachers and establishing alternative employment resources.

Jagriti envisions a just society free from economic, social and gender inequalities. The education program incorporates rationality, secularism and gender equality.Click on the photo to see a video.
