Mumbai, July 18 (UNI) Reliance Life Insurance, one of the fastest growing life insurance companies in the country, today launched its project ''School on Wheels'' in association with Project Crayon, an NGO focused on Child Rights and Youth Development.
The project, which is part of Reliance Life Insurance's Corporate Social Responsibility endeavor, was launched by Ms Tina Ambani.
The project aims to bring a mobile school close to children living in the slums of the metropolis. Before any intervention, every child is counseled to ascertain his or her profile. The overall approach is to prepare these children for admission to a formal education stream, impart appropriate moral and social values, and bring them to the mainstream of society.
''Education equals empowerment, the ability to craft a better future,'' Ms Ambani said at the launch. The focus would initially be on the slums around Chembur and Mankhurd. The mobile school will cater to the slums in and around these areas in the first phase, with more than 50 children having been already identified and selected for the project.
