This Mobile School Has Taught Over 200 Slum Kids How To Read, Write And Do Math

Kolkata-based NGO Help Us Help Them started an initiative called “Kalam Library On Wheels” to help educate slum children.

The bus runs six days a week, starting at 7 a.m., stopping for two hours each in five localities to teach underprivileged children.

Running through five localities in north and south Kolkata, the mobile school is a concept based on late President APJ Abdul Kalam’s philosophy that every child should have access to a library.

The initiative has been running for the past three years, has a library of around 75 books and has educated over 200 students.
