Innovation Mobile School children celebrates Republic Day.

Gurgaon I January 26, 2010 I Innovation Mobile School children celebrated Republic Day in Badshahpur CRPF Camp area. A Delhi based NGO; All India Citizens Alliance for Progress & Development (AICAPD) is running mobile schools in NCR including Gurgaon vicinity.

Prof. S K Kapoor, former Secretary, Punjab National Bank was the chief Guest during the function who hosted the flag. He called upon the parents to send their children to these Mobile Schools who provides education at their door steps free of cost. He added, " More than half of our country's nearly 200 million children aged between 6 and 14 do not complete even 8 years of elementary education. In fact, they either do not enroll in school at all or they drop out very early. Thus, situation is barely better for children who do finish eight years of school - most have unacceptably low achievement levels in language and mathematics. The challenges are immense : India is short of 1.2 million teachers, 42 million aged between 6 and 14 do not go to school, roughly 16% of all villages do not have Primary school facilities and 17% schools have just one teacher. He further said, " These Innovation Mobile Schools can play an important role for deprived children as they send the teachers to children's door steps.

On this occasion, Prof. Kapoor distributed stationery items including books to the children and also awarded to some children who won in different competitions and activities organized by the mobile school during the function. Prof. Kapoor thanked all the Mobile school/ AICAPD team including teachers. On this occasion Mr. T S Sridhar, Project Director, AICAPD and Mr. Sandeep Kr. Singh, Member Secretary of AICAPD were also present.
