About Pehchaan The Street School

Pehchaan The Street School (Trust)  is an eight-year-old organisation working across various slum areas in Delhi NCR. The primary objective of the organisation is to provide free education to underprivileged children.

“Pehchaan” means ‘Identity’.  Pehchaan The Street School focuses on providing Pehchaan – an identity to underprivileged children by providing them with education. Educating underprivileged children and availing them with resources enough to become economically independent. For over 8  years now, while we have emphasized the value of education as a fundamental right that ought to be accessible to every child out there with a desire to learn, we aim to go beyond education. The institutionalization and commodification of education across our country have severely restricted the ability of the underprivileged to access means of vocational and academic studies, and that’s the barrier that we aim to break with pehchaan, the street school.

Our Vision

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”

Pehchaan The Street School’s vision is to create a society where education is available to all irrespective of which class or economic strata they belong to. We aspire to make each child capable of being self-sufficient. moreover, bring all the facilities to them be it admissions in schools or colleges. Our vision goes beyond just education, we envision teaching the underprivileged how to create a life on their terms.
