Securing the Future of India by Teerth’s Way

Teerth Realties from its very first project have been working with the Door Step School to educate the children of the people working on the construction site. 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 miss on their education due lack of resources and a load of domestic responsibilities. For example, the elder children in the family have to look after their younger siblings when their parents are at work; so they miss out on their opportunities for an education
The company believes that education is a necessity of the future, therefore the company has setup a school on all their construction sites to educate the children and to prepare them for the challenges of the future. The company offers this cost free service to all the families working on the construction site. While the parents are at work, the children are taught, fed and looked after by 3 teachers and 2 co-ordinators.

The education provided strives for a balance between the search for understanding, the acquisition of essential knowledge, skills, the development of positive attitudes and the opportunity for positive action. The kids learn about various subject areas including visual and performing arts. The education initiative also ensures the safety of the children on the construction site.

The company also arranges for picnics and educational tours for these children on the weekends. Teerth Realties appreciates the recent opportunity provided by Mercedes Benz International School to all the children, by getting them involved in their school CAS activities. This month the senior students of MBIS hosted a fun-filled activity weekend for the kids. Here are a few visuals of the day.
