Project Why provides after school remedial education to over 1200 underpriveleged children through its five South Delhi centres, located in different slum areas. Project Why also works with women from within the same slum communities to provide them with skills to make them financially independent. With this aim in mind, a sewing unit was inaugurated for women in the Govindpuri Slum Area on May 16,2022 with just twenty women. In this centre, women are being taught basic sewing skills, embroidery, hemming and frock design. The strength of the class has grown to fifty ever since. To begin with, the women are offered a six month basic training course, free of cost and have the option of extending it to a year for advanced training. At the end of the course, these women are given a certificate for their qualification. Our sewing teachers are all qualified in sewing and design training.
On Saturday, our Giri Nagar Primary students from classes 4th to 6th went for an outing to the Nehru Place Fire Station. There they saw Fire engines, and were told basic knowledge of what happens in the station and how every thing works and also had a ride in the truck. Soon, we would like to take our secondary children also to the Fire station, they will enjoy and understand more.

In March 2020 Project Why as we knew it for twenty long and exciting years had to shut its doors. Somehow we all knew that things would never be the same again. For months we battled the new challenges and slowly crafted Project Why 2.0.
