Signal School a golden ray of hope
Signal School a golden ray of hope came into the life of children living on signals of teen hat naka, Thane, Maharashtra. As soon as signal turn into red and traffic is stopped, small helpless hand knocked our posh car windows in the hope of some food or alms with no grace and dreams in their eyes. Who are these children? They are not always beggars or kidnapped children. They too live with their family. On the streets, their families, uneducated, they don’t have proper address or even ID proofs of being Indian citizens. Who will look at their future? Is this a future of our country? Families living with social pressure, indebtedness, addiction, superstition and children living in a condition where there is no hope of life, no meaning of living, and no respectful life at all. Don’t they have right to live with dignity? To find out answers of these questions and to end this problem signal school has came into existence.
Signal school is an innovative concept initiated by SBV; it aims towards providing mainstream education to the children living on streets. To terminate begging from children’s lives. To provide primary and secondary education to underprivileged children by friendly education. To bring weak and deprived children in mainstream education. To develop cognitive skills of children through social participation.
