Admission drive for our learning centers

Admission drive is conducted by children and staff of Deepalay learning centers in North Delhi. Admission process in formal schools is a very complex affair. One advertisement in a newspaper with wide circulation and a notice with the tagline “Admission Open” is enough for these schools to start the admission process. Whereas for Non formal education centers, often teachers have to conduct door-to-door surveys in search of out of school children and conduct admission rallies for creating awareness, identifying and enrolling children.

One such drive was conducted by Deepalaya learning centers located at Adarsh Nagar, Wazirpur, Bhalaswa and Haiderpur for two consecutive days on 30th March and 31st March, 2016. On day one, students and teachers from Bhalaswa and Wazirpur took on the streets with banners and posters conveying messages like “Agar honge hum shikshit, tabhi karenge hum samaj shikshit” (If we get educated only then can we educate the society) and “hum bacche bharat ki shaan, do mujhe meri pehchan (We, the children, glorify India, give us our identity)”. Later in the day, the teachers conducted door-to-door visits to identify out of school children and to motivate parents to send their children to Deepalaya Learning centers.
