UNNOTCIED is a group of students and ex-students from Jawaharlal Nehru Univeristy (JNU) in New Delhi, India, which works for the welfare of the children of construction workers within the University Campus
There are lots of construction workers living with their families in Jawaharlal Nehru University campus. Many of their children have been living in small settlements inside the campus for all their lives. While their parents build the infrastructure for our education in one of India’s most prestigious universities they remain excluded from good education. All of them attend very basic governmental schools, and, apart from that, don’t receive any other educational impulses. It is therefore our duty to make a contribution with our activities, in order to give these children and their families what they deserve – education and wider exposure!
We believe that every child should be given the chance to develop its potential. An equal access to education is a basic right that should apply to everyone, and yet there is a long way to go till it will be achieved. With our organization we are trying to make some steps towards the goal of equal opportunities by making an impact where we can.
Maybe we cannot change whole system overnight, but we can share what is precious to us as students: our knowledge & education!
