The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) is responsible for the delivery of public education in Mumbai. The MCGM reaches out to about 3.00 lakh children, through over 973 Primary Schools and 243 Secondary Schools. Since early 2000s, the MCGM has invited NGOs with experience in education to support its initiatives and strengthen existing public systems.
While this approach has universal relevance, it is especially relevant to meet the unique needs of the children that Aseema works with.
We heavily rely on the three approaches on which our education is based – those developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, the Atma Vidya Educational Foundation in Kerala, and the Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education in Pondicherry.
