Seth M.R. Jaipuria School, Gomti Nagar mentors a school for the underserved called Navsrijan, by offering its premises free of cost. Students at Navsrijan come from less privileged backgrounds, most of them from neighbouring slums, wherein they work for a living. The kind of values, ethos they bring to the table are noteworthy.
Navsrijan classes are conducted after regular school hours with a separate block with proper infrastructure, dedicated to their education. Some students are also shifted to the mainstream based on excellence in their academic performance.
To help our students understand and to build empathy for people from under-served backgrounds, Jaipuria school has started the Buddy Interaction programme. Students of grade 7 from the main school pick one buddy from Navsrijan, with whom they exchange ideas and interests in order to get a glimpse into each other’s lives.
