We are group of concerned and caring citizens who desire to help the underprivileged children in the community. Our primary target group are the residents of the urban slums in Gurgaon.
Journey of LEU Foundation
LEU Foundation was started with a cardboard model school in the slum of Sector 53 (Gurgaon) in the March 2009. It was operational for over one and half years but the whole basti was demolished in preparation of the Commonweatlh Games. But our commitment was not shattered with the demolition, we again came together and started the school in Harijan Basti (DLF Phase - V, Near Paras Hospital, Gurgaon) within two months.
Bal Shiksha Kendra (BSK)
BSK provides learning spaces for the development and foundation building of the underprivileged children in the community. Currently its located in Harijan Colony, near Paras Hospital. It serves around 100 students who are enrolled as per classes (Nursery to Class V).
Its previous center ran successfully for over 1.5 years in the heart of a slum at Sector-53, Gurgaon which was
eventually demolished due to the Common Wealth Games.
Currently 20 students from BSK have been admitted to private schools for better education opportunities.
Center for Developing Young Minds
Through this center we provide mentoring classes to more than 40 children from the surrounding areas of BSK. Mentoring classes are held from Monday - Friday (3 PM – 5 PM).
Center for Computer Literacy
We have developed a Center for Computer Literacy at BSK in collaboration with Computer Shiksha ( NGO) to provide adequate knowledge of computer. This center provides elementary knowledge of MS Office and internet to the children. It helps the children in developing their skills in commanding computer to enrich their future plans.
Center for Vocational Training
We have started a Center for Vocational Training under Self Help Group project at BSK. The aim of the center is to serve the deprived section of the society specially girls and women living in the slum area with skills development. This center provides opportunity to learn, share thoughts, develop personality and also to uplift the socio-economic status of the girls/women for earning their livelihood.Currently the focus in on stitching and embroidery classes which is provided free of cost.
We encourage our partners and volunteers to visit us at the center :)
