Sharing a picture with all the children on her Instagram page, Shraddha Kapoor spoke about her visit as well as also urged everyone to support education for underprivileged children. Throwing light on the condition these kids belong as well as briefed about Pehlay Akshar’s academic initiative and appreciated them. “Today I was lucky to spend some time with these amazing kids at Prabhadevi Municipal School. Most of the kids in government schools come from slum communities near Worli. Their parents are either unemployed, labourers, street vendors, blue-collar workers, etc. Many come from emotionally, physically or sexually abusive families and have been in physically traumatic situations. What Pehlay Akshar (an NGO) does: Most NGOs come with an intention to create more equity in the society through education. Pehlay Akshar does it by ensuring that our kids can speak English well, and are not kept away from jobs that they want to be in, in spite of having all other skills. They also aim to create a safe space for the kids in the classroom and make learning fun, so that the kids seek more and more of knowledge, rather than us having to force them to study. Schooling is just one accept of our work. They also train government teachers in the Pehlay Akshar ideology to create a multiplier effect of new age learning.”
