What else can make a donor happy than relishing the impact of the project he/she adopted! Mr. Jyoti Sagar from Laj Jagdish Foundation visited the ‘Sambhav’ Project and the Community Library Project at Sanjay Colony with his sisters Ms. Adarsh Sharma, Vice President – All India Women’s Education Fund Association and Ms. Ritu Chopra, Executive Director – PAR2A Center & Assistant Research Professor, University of Colorado, Denever (USA) and her family on 7th January 2016. The idea was not only to meet the team but also to have a deeper understanding of the program.
When we proposed to enroll 30 out of school girls for ASHA project at our learning center at Panchsheel Enclave, the biggest hurdle was to have a survey done in the shortest possible time. Even though, Ramditti J R Narang Deepalaya School has been converted into a learning center, the teachers working thereat do not have much experience of mobilizing the community and enrolling students for such a programme. Considering the name and presence of Deepalaya in the community for more than 15 years, people enroll their children in the school. At no point of time, the teachers approached the community, conducted door-to-door surveys and dealt with a class having a mixed age-group with different learning skills.
