Teaching the underprivileged:

There are more than 40 schools in the 2 Km vicinity of IIT Kanpur. These schools face competent manpower problem due to which it becomes difficult to maintain standards.

Besides, after school assistance is not available to the children of the economically underprivileged section as the parents often can’t cope with the modern syllabus and tuition centers are beyond their reach.

NSS in collaboration with Shiksha Sopan, Prayas and schools like Vivekananda Vidyalaya Lodhar, Opportunity school, GPN Vidyalaya etc. run programs to assist teaching in the schools and to run evening learning centers where children are given academic assistance.
