#CreateANewNormal for Migrant Communities in Bangalore
We are an NGO with a heart for children in migrant communities
We believe every child deserves to experience the joy of learning.
For the last three years, Diya Ghar has been changing the lives of the migrant community in Bangalore by providing pre-school education for children of laborers in a nurturing environment. Along with this foundational Montessori education, our children are given two wholesome meals a day and safe transport from their settlements to school and back. So far, 400 little ones have “graduated” from Diya Ghar and joined elementary schools in Bangalore or back in their villages.
What did we do when schools were closed?
As the children can’t meet together at the pre-school premises due to Covid-19,
Diya Ghar’s committed teachers go into their tent settlements with books, colouring sheets, and warm smiles.
Now our teachers record the lessons and send them to the children on a daily basis. We create learning kits for the children to use at home. These include a table, floor mat, study material, and stationery kit, among other items.
We have identified and trained Community Champions who help us teach the children within these communities.
To make sure the children are healthy through this time we distribute nutrition kits every week that includes milk, eggs, and porridge powder. Since we are going into the community we now provide nutrition kits for older siblings as well.
With our intervention, these children now actually have a chance. A chance to learn and sing and colour and read. A chance to receive wholesome food through Diya Ghar’s nutrition programme. A chance to just be kids.
Diya Ghar is rewriting the narrative for these bright, beautiful children. Join us in giving them a new normal.
