The Society For Door Step Schools
"If a child cannot go to school, why not bring education to his / her doorstep?” With this hope, Door Step School embarked upon its journey to address illiteracy among the children from marginalised sections of society. DSS provides education and support to the often-forgotten children of pavement and slum dwellers, construction site labourers and many other underprivileged families. For more than 25 years, DSS has reached out to more than 5 Lac children in the age group of 0 to 14 years. With over 100 centres, every year, DSS aims to bridge the divide between underprivileged children and education through various innovative programs. And volunteers play an important role in these programs. The organisation’s volunteering opportunities depend on the needs of children and organisation at any given point. Volunteers involve in activities such as teaching different subjects to children according to their curriculum, conducting Science experiments, various art & craft activities, life skill sessions etc. Volunteers of DSS have truly put its mission into practice and managed to provide many children with the impetus and resources to study and help them make the transition to literacy and thereby, to a better future!
