1680 MGL Disha Project: Remedial Classes for Children in slums of Mumbai

Mumbai, March 2023: The Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS), Mumbai is running 20 remedial classes for 503 children from the slums of Mumbai under the aegis of MGL Disha Project supported by Mahanagar Gas Limited. 

The number of students keep varying as some students who join initially do not attend class regularly due to lack of interest. There are 503 students in these 20 classes. The social workers held meetings with parents and teachers in the school. Many of the students in these classes are referred by the school teachers as they are way behind other students and need extra attention from teachers. 10 visits were made by the Project Officer and Social workers. 

Every child’s progress was closely monitored by the teachers through regular monthly exams and home work. These classes have contributed immensely to the scholastic improvement of children. There is substantial improvement in the marks obtained by majority of children.
