Nurturing untapped
potential by shaping the
minds of children.


We’re a Mumbai based NGO tutoring underprivileged
kids to help them get into schools.

+WHO
WE
ARE

Some children, through no fault of their own, have their basic amenities and education overlooked leaving them ill equipped to deal with the complexities of life. At Junoon, we are providing such children what they are rightfully entitled to— basic education and essential training so they can envision a better future, get motivated and grow to live up to their full potential. To take up a career of their choice and become actual changemakers.

+WHAT WE DO


We empathetically listen to their problems and understand their needs. Then, through one on one interactions we equip them with the knowledge, skills and tools to channel their emotions, thoughts and actions for them to become productive, well rounded individuals who can then go on to live meaningful lives with a deeper sense of fulfilment.

+WHY WE'RE HERE


Due to the problematic environment these children have been raised in, their basic education and upbringing have unfortunately been overlooked. With our government slashing its budget for education in the revised five year plan and schools increasingly pushing for privatisation, these kids have very few avenues left to seek what they so desperately need to improve their lives. Given their limited skills, awareness and options, their circumstances have pigeonholed them to extremely limited career options. In an attempt to push them towards a brighter future, we educate and prepare every child with the goal to eventually get them into schools— to give them an opportunity to bloom into holistic individuals.

+WHAT WE ARE UPTO


To get them ready for the rigours of school, we primarily focus on teaching them how to write and read, to make them literate. Using methods they can easily understand and grasp onto, we also teach them basic Maths and Science, while also paying special attention to improving their confidence, interpersonal, and communication skills. After their admission, we monitor their regularity, and help them with their academic work, while also teaching them extra-curricular skills like music and art.

We create an environment that shapes these children's minds, and builds their awareness of the various skills they can practise and arts they can pursue. By being in an environment they feel safe, cared for and comfortable in, the children learn to open up and eventually trust themselves, and others. By giving them all equal attention and keeping the learning fun, we ensure appropriate guidance and nurture while keeping their inquisitive minds continuously fed.
