Steps towards slums education 

In order to promote education in slums and dissuade youth from abuse, the Commissionerate police have launched a novel programme ‘Enlight 2.0’.

The initiative will move under a process where learning centres are set up in each slum where education support will be provided to the identified girl students of class V to class VIII.

According to the sources, in the first phase, 200 girls from five slums here – Sikharchandi Nagar, Sikharchandi Nagar Muslim, Saibanaphula, Tarini and Patra have been identified for the programme.

This initiative is working to provide quality education to children from marginalised communities to help them become good citizens and succeed in life. Volunteers will teach mathematics, science, English, and other subjects every day for one hour in the morning and two hours in the evening.

Apart from this counselling will be provided to the parents and they will be advised to continue the education of their children.

Saumyendra Kumar Priyadarsi, police commissioner said, Students will enjoy this education programme as songs, dance, storytelling, games and other activities will be part of it. Children will get an opportunity to learn through fun activities and it will be an enjoyable experience for them.
