Navsarjan conducts literacy classes in the slums where all non-school-going children, whether working, roaming around aimlessly or staying at home are welcome. There is no rigid time table. The children walk into the class room as and when they are free. At the end of the year usually a number of them join the formal school. The others continue learning with us.
