About the NGO:
Conscience, Care, Contribute - BG Foundation was established in 2008 with the objective to make a real difference to the lives of people who face challenges that disrupt their lives on a daily basis. It has been our endeavour to support the government of India’s initiatives towards zero child labour aiming at rehabilitating these children from the identified slum areas in Gurgaon and provide them with opportunity to learn and train through the special schools/learning centres established by the foundation and finally mainstream them to the formal education system. The foundation aims to help empower these children and help them evolve as better citizens.
Currently the foundation has 4 learning centres – Umang (estd.Oct 2008) and Umeed (estd. Feb 2011), Utsaah (estd. Nov 2011), space provided by Mogly, a school providing holistic learning, started a new centre in March 2012 Umeedein and recently started Ujala (April 2012).
Umang: has been running since October 1, 2008, the school caters to the educational and life-skill needs of the children of itinerant workers and slum children. It is conducted from the premises of a government school with classes being held in the afternoon. Umang comprises of 50 children aged 6 to 14 years in two sections divided on merit and capability with two teachers, one for each section.

Umang comprises of 55 children aged 6 to 14 years in two sections divided on merit and capability with two teachers, one for each section.
Umeed: Umeed is our new educational initiative at Jharsa Village in Gurgaon. The school was started on February 1st, 2011 with about 30 children from a nearby slum development, between the ages of 6 to 12 years. We are confident that these numbers would only increase. As of now, classes are held in a park in Sector 40, Jharsa, but this certainly hasn’t taken away the enthusiasm of these children!
Utsaah: Starting in Nov 2011, at DLF-I, Gurgaon, within the premises of a new school - Mogly - providing holistic learning experience for the children including meditation, yagya, etc. We take this opportunity to thanks the management of Mogly to present us this opportunity.
Umeedein: Umeedien is an extension of Umeed running at Jharsa Village in Gurgaon. The school was started in March, 2012 with about 25 children from a nearby slum and village, between the ages of 6 to 12 years in the afternoon shift.
Ujala: Started in April 2012 with 25 children of age group between 6-12 years at the village Tigra, Sector 57, Gurgaon.

The various activities undertaken at the learning centres during the yearly session are:
• Daily supervision of teaching, mid-day meal and administration of the centre
• 1 mid-day meal supervised daily for nutritional content and quality
• Uniforms provided for the kids comprising sweaters, socks, warm caps
• Providing basic stationery kits, comprising of a school bag, lunch box, notebooks, crayons, worksheets, pencil box.
• Conducting a PTA meeting, attended enthusiastically by all parents of the children. This also helped us to create a database of the children attending the school regularly
• Celebrating festivals & special occasions with the children
• Last academic year, 20 children were integrated into mainstream school and we hope to integrate an even larger number this year!
• Medical health check-up camps
