Celebrate with NGO

Image
They may not be as privileged as you and me but they are for sure more excited for the festivities. The kids at @parkshala are prepping up once again to brighten up homes this Diwali.



We have an earnest request for you all. This time around, please don’t negotiate on the prices of the diyas with the street vendors. How about we light up their homes this Diwali by paying a penny more. It’s the least we could do.


Child Protection

Image
According to Supreme Court’s Report on POCSO cases, in the first half of the year, i.e between January 1, 2019 and June 30, 2019, over 24,000 cases of child abuse were registered in India. Drill this number down and it would send a chill down your spine- one kid in every 5 minutes is sexually abused in India! .

So while you and I are slogging through the day or browsing through the dressed up window displays at malls or nibbling on popcorn during a movie or just resting ‘em eyes, there are hundreds of children facing #sexualabuse
.
It’s an alarming situation and it’s absolutely important now to educate the kids and their parents about respect and consent, about #goodtouchbadtouch and a little extra about #selfdefence

NGO Underprivileged Children Education

Image
The schools our children go to lack basic amenities and quality education. Moreover, most of their peers at such schools are uninterested in education. So, our first and foremost focus is on academic growth and improvement. Subjects that students find difficult like English and Chemistry are taught directly by our founder, Priya Gupta  We conduct regular tests to gain insight into problem areas. Remedical classes our conducted during summer and winter vacations to bring weak students at par with others in their grade. Improvement has been observed in grades at school, fluency in spoken English, overall confidence while asking questions, curiosity to know more.

Sponsor A Treat

Image
While we understand the importance of providing nourishing, healthy meal to the children; there are times when they just want to let go and eat with abandon! For such days, we help interested sponsors arrange for mouth-watering chhole-kulche, mango milkshake, samosa-jalebi, kachori, ice-cream and a lot more from reputed outlets. We disallow all sorts of chips and aerated drinks.


WHY #SPONSORATREAT WITH US? Celebrate your special occasions with the kids and create memories of a lifetime! Teach your young ones values like compassion, generosity and kindness! Share because something small for you is unthinkable for them!

Parkshala- Workshops

Image
Once academics were stabilized, we started exploring options for all-round, holistic development. We have collaborated with different individuals and organizations across various fields to conduct workshops for the children. In 2018, we conducted a workshop almost every month.
EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION AND BODY LANGUAGE"Effective Communication and Body Language" workshop was conducted by Ms. Nancy Juneja of RevUp Life Skills Unit, Delhi. She spoke to the children about how to be more positive, assertive and coherent in life. This was done through games and activities.

Every Child Healthy

Image
"Every Child Healthy" is a Parkshala initiative dedicated towards health, nutrition and hygiene of underprivileged children.

Under this initiative, we focus on healthcare by conducting medical camps for the children at Parkshala. We have collaborated with Icare eye hospital, Noida and Smile India Dental, Delhi. The children who need further examinations are taken to respective hospitals till they are completely treated. These services are free for them.

The other aspect we focus on is nutrition. We try to provide healthy snacks, fruit and milk-based drinks to the children weekly. People choose to celebrate their special occasions by sponsoring and sharing a healthy meal with the children!

NGO underprivileged children education Noida.

Image
Parkshala is a Noida-based NGO dedicated to transforming lives of children who hail from the lower strata of the society. We work as an after-school support group to bridge the educational & moral gap between these children and their affluent peers.
Further, we are trying to utilize already available resources for this purpose. So our lessons take place in community parks and halls.
