Abstract

Reaching the un-reached: Case studies of the learning initiatives of the street children in Kolkata

This paper showcases three education initiatives from the Niharakana Rehabilitation Centre, the Nabadisha Project by the Women’s Interlink Foundation and education-related projects by the Hope Foundation. These initiatives were coordinated by a school teacher, government bodies (Kolkata Municipal Corporation and Kolkata Police) and a Non Government Organisation (NGO). All three aim at facilitating learning and information among the street children as well as distressed children in Kolkata City in the state of West Bengal in India.
