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 3 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.
Along with the help of our volunteers, who take out time every weekend to impart primary and secondary education to kids from different slums across Delhi, we hope to dismantle social and class hierarchies, and provide an opportunity for every kid, irrespective of their background, to realize their potential and make the most of their lives, creating a new identity for themselves. 5 years of impactful work, positive feedback, and over 100 volunteers looking over 750 students later; Pehchaan is running the program with the aim of benefiting underprivileged students across the city; “SHIKSHAANTAR”
WHAT IS SHIKSHAANTAR?
Learning without barriers is the main objective of Shikshaantar. Being out of school puts these children at greater risk of exploitation, child marriage, and lower income-earning potential. By joining hands with us, you can open doors for the children to explore and to recognize their abilities and skills.
#Shikshaantar is an effort to reach out to each & every child, across the city, who needs help in term of education or educational resources. We will try our best to help such children in whichever & whatever way we can.
Your regular contribution can boost their moral and can increase their confidence in themselves and in their dreams. The only way you can truly appreciate the education you’ve received is by helping others receive the same. At this confluence of give and take, is happiness. Happiness of pages that you give to those children who read it proudly under the candle. You give them, the pen to write their own destiny.

At Pehchaan, we’re not about getting the credit- in fact, we’re all about helping and doing good. We wish to make education viral. If you’re one of those who have been lucky and have had the opportunity to make something of themselves, you can help make India a better nation. How? Just a little contribution on your part. Is there anyone you know who never got the opportunity to learn? A daughter of your maid’s, perhaps? Or the son of the labourer you glanced at while returning from work?
Share your knowledge with them! It’s that easy. And we’ll be there to make it easier for you at all stages- guidance, books, stationary and even clothes-so that we can make help you transform someone’s hard life and help them live a life of better quality. After all, why should the fact that a child is residing in a remote and inaccessible area hinder his right to education? Or why should the economic status of a young being be an obstacle to his dreams and aspirations? Why should a person’s caste, creed, gender, race, sex, locality, financial status, define who he/she is? Let education do the imperative and the rest will fall into place accordingly. Here is your chance to be the change that you wish to see in the world!
