Educo is registered as a charity (Bombay Public Charitable Trust no. E-25425), since 2009. We are located in Central Mumbai managing a school in partnership with the MCGM under the School Support Program. Our curriculum is focused on providing high quality contemporary, English medium education to our students. Additionally, we lay equal emphasis on imparting structured value education in order to build the student’s character. With active parent engagement and their commitment to educo, we are able to impact the local community thereby being catalysts for social change.
Parel (Lalbaug) grapples with poverty and under-development, amidst the development and boomtown high rises surrounding it. This area is among the least literate communities in Mumbai. Education of the children and engagement with their parents will help this disenfranchised group of people into mainstream occupations.
Our only project is at ‘Saibaba path Mumbai Public School’, Parel. Our mission and vision statements reflect how we plan to go about our project.
- We are one of the 4 NGOs which support MCGM schools out of total approximately 50 MCGM schools in our ward known as the F/S ward.
- In a span of 8 years educo has reached 750 children (in 2017) from the initial 20 children in 2009. We aim to catapult to around 1000 children in next 5 years.
- The student to teacher ratio in pre- primary and primary medium is 15:1 and 20:1 respectively.
- We are one of the few NGOs to promote local sports and execute a robust sports program. We continuously engage kids in local indigenous sports along with mainstream international games throughout the year.
