Sukaniya Samriddhi Yojana

A month ago, team ECC attended a session on various government schemes that are either related to girl child education or to under- privileged children's education. Sachin Pandharinath Wagalgave, one of the tram members decided that he would like to understand this scheme a bit better.So, he decided to visit one of the India Post Offices close to his house. As an uncle to two nieces he thought to gift them both something that will help them in their higher education and he opened their accounts under 'Sukaniya Samriddhi Yojana'.

Once he experienced this procedure himself, he started to mobilise parents of the girls in various construction sites. In about a month 8 parents opened their girl child's account under the scheme.

On September 17, 2017 WIPRO, one of our funding partners organised a Marathon event. Invites were sent to NGOs that they are supporting with funds. Door Step School was one such invitee. Children presented lezium act, Dance cum Drama on RTE, 5 K run and participated in inter NGO dance performance. Five children who've excelled in academics last year were felicitated too.
