"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

In 2011, you (AID Duke Chapter) provided us funding support for our activities for the academic year April 2011-March 2012. The support helped us a lot in continuing our education and skill building initiatives and further strengthening them to make a bigger, long lasting impact. To mention a few, last year we enrolled 45 students into formal schooling program, started Project UDAAN to lay special emphasis on education of the girl child and organised a teacher training workshop to improve teaching skills. The details of the activities are provided in the enclosed progress report.

Jaagriti currently has two projects in Sector-17 and Sector 12 of Dwarka sub city in New Delhi with over 120 children from different backgrounds and in age group of 4 to 16 years. To continue with our initiatives in the next academic year (April 2012 to March 2013) and improve the overall learning environment for these children, we need your continuous support and request you to renew our funding for the next academic year. As Jaagriti is a volunteer driven organisation with limited resources, your support will help us a lot to concentrate more on the education of the less privileged children at Jaagriti.





In continuation of our efforts to enroll the children into mainstream education program, Jaagriti admitted 45 students, including 11 girls, in schools in the academic year 2011-12. This takes the total number of students admitted by us to 139. The children are in age group of 6 to 17 years and admitted to class 1 to class X. All the children are going regularly to school and doing well. The progress of the children is regularly monitored by the volunteers and teachers, who also provide regular counseling to the parents to encourage their children for studies. B) Project UDAAN: Special emphasis has been laid on the education of the gird child as we believe that education can help the girl child free herself from the cycle of poverty, social evils and fear to become a successful human being. We have initiated ‘Project UDAAN- her flight to freedom’ with the objective of supporting education of the underprivileged girl child. The program provides girls with not only academic support and guidance but also direct material in form of stationary, books and uniform. UDAAN is a participatory project where individuals are encouraged to sponsor the education of a girl child for a minimum period of one year. Currently, 28 girls are under the care of this project supported by 10 donors for one academic year (till March 2012). C) Teacher Training Workshop: In association with an NGO, ‘Touching Lives’ from Mumbai, a Teacher Training Workshop was organized in New Delhi from 30th June to 3rd July 2011 to improve the teaching skills of teachers at Jaagriti and other NGOs in Delhi-NCR. Over 30 teachers from 15 different NGOs participated in the program, which focused on learning best practices in the classroom and innovative ways of teaching. The workshop was a success and we have received many requests to organize the workshop again this year. D) Skill Building and Festival Celebrations: We continued with organising regular skill building activities and events for celebrations of different festivals at all our projects.





To continue with our initiatives at our projects with around 120 children.
