Chhoti Si Asha’s very first project was a school for street children. We worked with the children who had been begging and polishing shoes on the streets of Chandigarh. These students were engaged through an alternative educational program. We worked with the children on basic numeracy and literacy.
In addition to academic studies, we worked with the children on meditation and jewelry making to increase the concentration and fine motor skills. We have in the past also held workshops to help improve their information assimilating skills.
