Education – The route to empowerment

The foundation for a successful and empowered existence is Education. NeeV an offshoot of Bharat Memorial Charitable Trust is working relentlessly to strengthen this foundation of children living in slums of Gurgaon. Association with Smile has given the much needed impetus to NeeV to accomplish its objecvtives.

About the partner

In the year 1996, after years of working and living for themselves, a group of highly successful, like minded and self-motivated individuals decided it was ‘Pay back time’. Bharat Memorial Charitable Trust was thus born at Panchkula in Haryana.

Being a part of the highly educated strata of society and being aware of its benefits, the trustees thought of doing their bit by educating the underprivileged. They felt that the best way to equip underprivileged with life skills and empower them to face the realities of life was to educate them. The trust since its inception has been serving the underprivileged through scholarships, medical camps, sports events, interest free education loans, supporting orphanages etc.

About the project

NeeV – an offshoot of Bharat Memorial Charitable Trust was founded in Sep’07 at Gurgaon in the state of Haryana with the objective of dispelling darkness of ignorance from the lives of underprivileged through the power of education.

Starting with just 8 children, NeeV today boasts of student strength of 100. Around 35 of its ex-students have been mainstreamed in leading schools of Delhi like Amity International School and Delhi Public School.

NeeV has been successfully transforming lives of underprivileged children residing in slums of Gurgaon by:

(a) Enrolling them into Non-formal education sytem

(b) Mainstreaming them into formal system of education

(c) Handholding the children even after mainstreaming

(d) Identifying and developing their talents in the fields of art, craft and computers

(e) Helping the overage children to join as trainees at nearby small scale units along with providing basic education

(f) Conducting afternoon classes for domestic maids for basic education and knitting/ stitching

Trustee (NeeV)

"Our association with Smile Foundation has enabled us to win the trust of the sponsors thereby opening new avenues for us. This has led to successful implementation of a computer training center at NeeV.
Further, we hope to set up a medical check-up facility at NeeV with assistance from Smile Foundation since they have been involved in various health programmes for the last many years."
