As we know, education creates the foundation for a child, but the bitter truth is that a large chunk of our population is still deprived of such facilities in our country.
“Arzoo” (meaning ‘To Aspire’) is an attempt to eradicate illiteracy among the weakest section of the society. By introducing a vocational skill development programme, we’re focusing on quality education and skill development of a child. ‘Arzoo - A Centre for Learning' is located in a village called Hariahera (18 kilometres from Gurgaon, primarily a dalit village) and in Rajendra Park (about 3 kilometres from Gurgaon railway station).
At Arzoo we cater to the age group of 3-6 years, where we provide education to 90+ students. Under this program, we offer them 360 degree learning and nurture their creativity and imagination in such a way that they don’t lag behind in the subsequent years of schooling.
Setting up new centres for betterment of education for under privileged children. Encouraging female child participation and getting them enrolled in our schools. Running campaign in rural areas and educating parents about the importance of pursuing schooling for at least 15 years after they complete their basic education at “Arzoo”. Conducting awareness campaigns in order to develop healthy habits
With the objective of social awareness, Consus Foundation in association with Medanta and Sujata Hospital, regularly organises medical camps for the local people in the vicinity of the Arzoo schools. Till date, more than 200 villagers have participated in these camps. The camp organised are mainly general health check-ups and free medication.
Healthy habit campaign was organised for the residents of Hariahera and Rajendra Park centres. It was one of the critical issues amongst the villagers which needed to be addressed. The week-long event addressed the common health related issues and basic hygiene awareness amongst the students, they were also given small grooming kits.
With the objective of creating awareness of population control amongst the localities of Hariahera, Consus Foundation organized a camp where participants were made to understand the benefits of family planning.
Consus does not only believe in imparting education to children within the four walls of the school premises. It focuses on giving real life experience to the students. In this regard, we organize a day-trip to National Zoological Park for the kids accompanied by their mothers.
The students at Arzoo were invited by PVR Cinemas for a special screening of a kid’s movie. It was a fun-filled and unique experience for the kids, since it was their first outing to a theatre.
In a continuous effort to make our teachers and students converse in English, we enable our students to communicate with the larger world with greater confidence. We follow an all English based curriculum so that our kids become capable of reading and understanding the language by the time they turn 6.
