About Us

 Pehchaan The Street School (Trust) is an initiative of a dedicated group of people working together to promote and provide free education for underprivileged children residing on the streets and in slum areas.

Pehchaan, a word that means ‘to recognise’- To recognise the dire need to educate our children, irrespective of their pockets, is our motive. For over 6 years now, while we have emphasized the value of education as a fundamental right, that ought to be accessible to every child out there with a desire to learn, we have always tried to go beyond that. The institutionalization and commodification of education across our country has severely restricted the ability for the underprivileged to access means of vocational as well as academic studies, and that’s the barrier that we aim to break with our street school.
