In 2005, Project WHY was offer of funding that could be used for purchasing a building to be used as a school. Govindpuri centre came to existence, a building with 3 build up floors on 50 square with bathrooms on each floor.
The junior and higher secondary centre was opened when the first batch passed out of Class V and the students urged us to start a class VI. Today we run classes I to VIII (40 children), a crèche / early education program (28 children) and the special needs children day care program (20 children).
Over the years this location has seen many projects come and go. It is here that we seeded our first primary support project that was located in a reclaimed pig park and then bulldozed out to land on the roadside!
We then opened other primary projects in neighbouring slums but always retained one in this location.
Fifteen years down the lane we have come full circle as it is one of our alumni who teaches this class!
Our Senior Secondary Project was born and never looked back. The children were taught in the freezing winter mornings and did us proud. Today most of them have secured good jobs and some have even started families!
Every year around 20 students pass their class XII Boards and many top their school.
We watch them find their wings with immense pride.
In no time, we managed to get a few old computers and our computer project saw the light of day.
Over time, we realised that our computer project could also be a possible income generation project and thus opened to students outside project why. The centre runs 6 month courses in different batches and some of the courses on offer are: courses Basic, Tally, DTP, Flash Animation. We also offer hardware courses. Many of our students have secured good jobs.
