Angel Children School is a free English medium school with dedicated staff for slum & street children located at Chunavati School math. We serve quality education to these children & 75% of them from minority community.
SUPRAVAT has taken the initiative to target children belonging to economically depressed family to ensure access to education. The children hailing from such distressed families’ languise for want of opportunities. Hence, SUPRAVAT has taken the initiative to draw them within the ambit of education. It has set up a primary school that is from Nursery, Class I to Class IV for those highly disadvantaged children. 75 children are usually enrolled for a period of 4 years. The children are provided with books, stationeries, dress and tiffin. They are groomed and nursed till they complete primary education.After completion of the primary stage the children are admitted to Class V. It is quite interesting to point out that till date 35 children has passed out from the Angel School. But they are still continuing with their education quite promisingly. SUPRAVAT provides those children who are now at post primary stage with books and stationeries. Their parents are also supporting their wards in some other ways to enable them to continue with their education, in spite of economic difficulties. The children are gradually marching towards the herald of light. Further having a plan to start computer class for them.
This school has no funding we always seeking funds for future betterment of this project.
