~A Slumgods Initiative to educate the Dharavi Youngsters~

Mumbai: Slumgods Travel and Tours are a creative group of entrepreneurs bringing Dharavi to the world and vice versa. Our Latest Initiative ‘TAPtheTECH’ is a way of giving back to the society they grew up in. By teaching the children of Dharavi various educational and practical topics that would benefit them in the future, Slumgods plans on equipping them with the power of intellect and creativity to take on the world of opportunities that lie before them.

This week’s topic was Fibonacci Numbers. By definition, the first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are 1 and 1, or 0 and 1, depending on the chosen starting point of the sequence, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two.

For an entire week, on a daily basis, the students spent an hour listening to audio lessons and later engaged in various discussions about the topic. Post the educational sessions, the Slumgods crew arranged various activities, games and experiments to help the kids understand it in a more practical way as well.

The initiative has received a great response from various parents and guardians of the children as the kids have started to look forward to education as a key to freedom rather than just a burden.

Apart from education, SlumGods being dance enthusiasts have also been teaching the kids various dance forms to help them express themselves through dance and brighten their horizon in whatever way they can.
