Bringing children back into public education

Mainstreaming out of school children through focused learning from Gubacchi.


In October 2015, a group of six alumnus from our University began a bridge Learning Centre at Kodathi Higher Primary Government School near Sarjapur Road in Bangalore. Gubacchi — A Learning Community, works to bring out of school’ children to the classroom. The children come from migrant labour families of daily wage construction workers, contract sweepers and garbage loaders. The learning centre now has more than 150 children, and helps upto 20 students return to public education annually.

The centre was begun by a group of six students who graduated from the MA Education programme in Azim Premji University.
