Apna Skool

The Apna Skool - An Innovation in Education is an ingenious and creative idea developed to provide free education to the children of migrant labourers in Kanpur, UP. There are currently more than 600 students in 25 Apna Skool centres. It is a part of a local NGO in Kanpur, Jagriti Bal Vikas Samiti.

Apna Skools, are a unique network of schools for the children of migrant laborers who are not able to get admission into formal schools because of their itinerant lifestyle. The Apna Skools take education to the children by conducting classes around the brick kilns and construction sites in the city of Kanpur. The organization aims to open as many Apna Skool centers as possible, with the double objective of providing basic education to the children and ensuring the integration of these children in mainstream schools.

Society for Education of Crippled

Society for the Education of the Crippled or SEC educates and rehabilitates children and adults with physical and multiple disabilities from low economic groups. The Society for the Education of the Crippled (Child and Adult) was founded by Fathema Ismail in 1958. Fathema’s concern for the physically handicapped came from her personal experience as the mother of a polio-affected child whom she wanted to rehabilitate medically and educationally. She was successful in her efforts as her daughter was able to lead a normal life. Fathema Ismail began with a personal contribution of Rs. 40,000 to start the school. The school and her work progressed thereafter with the donations received from well-wishers. A sense of proper school setting was experienced with the establishment of the Agripada unit of the school. There was a bell indicating periods for different classes, and proper desks and classrooms were set up. More teachers were employed for the thirty students. At that time, the Ex-students formed and ran the Association.
