Free Self Study Room (Abhyasika): In Mumbai environment many kids live in small rooms in Chawls or slums with or in some cases without electricity. This Study Room helps them overcome these obstacles that come in the way of their ability to study in a focused way. These kids come to this well-lit and aired facility with pin drop silence for 2 hours every day on a regular basis and study with the required concentration so that they are able to improve their performance in School and hence get further motivation. Foundation opened its first Abhyasika in 2006 in Forest land of Malad where poorest of poor live in Mumbai, then in 2007 added one at more location nearby but both Abhyasikas were disallowed by Forest Department. Without getting demoralized volunteers of Foundation started in 2008 next Abhyasika at Mangesh School located in Kurar village (a slum area). We were forced to stop this Abhyasika in 2011 because of lack of local Volunteers.
Veer Abhimanyu Abhyasika: This Abhyasika has been started from 2010 in Utkarsh Mandir Shala, Malad East. The Abhyasika is open from 7pm to 9pm. At 8 pm, kids do Pranayam and Prayers for couple of minutes and then restart study under pin drop silence for another one Hour. Once a week, kids enjoy some wholesome games and exercises for an hour to increase their physical strength. Once in a year all students of Abhyasika get an opportunity to participate in an educational picnic to enhance their knowledge and also enjoy a general picnic and site seeing in around Mumbai. Some of the selected kids are sent to personality development courses/camps to provide them further input. In the summer vacation, 10th grade Students are helped specially with an English Speaking Course so after joining Collage they can co-op with the changed language instruction.
