About Educo

Parel (Lalbaug) grapples with poverty and under-development, amidst the development and boomtown high rises surrounding it. This area is among the least literate communities in Mumbai. Education of the children and engagement with their parents will help this disenfranchised group of people into mainstream occupations. Hence Educo was born. Founded in 2009, Educo is an NGO located in Central Mumbai managing a school in partnership with the MCGM. 

Their curriculum is focused on providing high quality English medium education to our students. However, there's an equal emphasis on imparting structured value education in order to build the student’s character. With active parent engagement and commitment to Educo, they are able to impact the local community thereby being catalysts for social change.

Why We're Raising Funds

Having been supporters since 2012, we know how hard the team at Educo works to ensure all their children have every possible opportunity to learn and grow into holistic individuals. From field trips to Nehru Science Centre to extensive teacher training to football training in Russia, Educo is not focused on simply providing an education, but rather on high quality education. 

But being passionate and dedicated is not enough. This is where we come in. All four of us are running in the Tata Mumbai Marathon, TMM 2018 to challenge ourselves physically and mentally. Over the past few months we discussed that we should do more than run and so decided to raise funds for Educo. We decided that we wanted to help Educo provide even more opportunities to their students. They deserve to have at least their basic rights fulfilled - a good quality education- one, which we didn't realize the value until Educo. 

 

So help us help Educo. Any kind of contribution, big or small, will move Educo one step closer to their goal. 

We Run So They Can Fly
