Job Discription

Door Step School (DSS) was established in Mumbai, India in 1989 with the aim of addressing literacy amongst the marginalized sections of society. The school provides education and support to the often-forgotten children of pavement dwellers, slum dwellers and construction site families. The school has since expanded to cover both Mumbai and Pune and has successfully reaches out to over 1,00,000 children annually. Many of these children are not enrolled in school and have limited access to books and a place to study. Additionally, many children (particularly girls) drop out of school to work or care for younger children. With neither support nor resources at home some children also suffer from very low learning levels.

Since inception Door Step School has been striving to provide multiple educational services, as per the needs of the children through Balwadis (kindergarten), School Enrolment services, Study classes for children, literacy classes for out of school children, computer literacy classes and libraries for all. Door Step School provides a school bus service for younger children and also runs a mobile school for street children and for those who work and live in congested areas where there is no space to run a class on a regular basis. While conducting all these programmes, Door Step School is flexible in terms of timings, location of classes and there is no limit on minimum number of children to start a new class.

In 1999, Door Step School (Door Step School) decided to intervene and collaborate with MCGM to support them in imparting quality education to the children. Such intervention was considered essential in view of the problems of non-enrolment, wastage and stagnation observed over the years of working in the urban slum communities. It was aimed at facilitating the learning process as well as making the school a place conducive for learning. Door Step School achieves its goal by running various educational programmes like Reading Promotion activities, Libraries, Remedial Class(Study Class), Mental health project, Pre-School(Balwadi) amongst others in the Municipal schools.

The Area Coordinator serves as a key link between the Associate Director and other staff of the Door Step School Direct Education Program. S/he is responsible for the overall management of coordinators and teachers and for ensuring quality implementation and impact of DSS services in the field.
