Welcome to Educo
Educo is an NGO registered in 2009, under Mumbai Public Charitable Trust.We are one of the 6 NGOs managing one school, Saibabapath MPS, under the School Support Program of the MCGM(Public Private Partnership Policy). In 2018-19 we will be serving 800+ children from the socio-economically backward area of Parel,Lalbaug.
The community of Parel is still reeling from the aftermath of the mill closures of the 80’s when the parents of our children faced dire poverty and lack of education. They are now manual labourers, many casual and domestic. It is only quality education in the facility of the MCGM and under the aegis of Right to Education 2009, which can create the career opportunities available in the metropolis of Mumbai.
The educo team over 9 years has created a tuition and expense free English medium school of choice in the neighbourhood of Parel. It is Pre-k to 10 school with a team of qualified teachers and management. Through this we are ensuring that we deliver a quality of education which is financially out of reach for the parents. Inspired by the NCF 2005, we are ensuring that the child receives a holistic education in a joyous and nurturing environment. We have a Pedagogy department and in-service teacher training that encourages continuous development of teachers.
We are also aspiring to be a center of excellence within the MCGM system and share our learning with various organizations in the education space and MCGM. In 2020 our first batch will appear for the 10th grade board exam the Secondary School Certificate(SSC).
Educo is deeply grateful to the MCGM Public Private Partnership Cell, under whose umbrella the School Support Program is run. We have been working with the MCGM since 2008, and this partnership has allowed us to make an invaluable impact on the Lalbaug community.
Under the tutelage of the MCGM, the children at Saibaba Path MPS enjoy the following facilities:
- MCGM provides the school infrastructure utilities, professional security and housekeeping.
- The school is located in a large facility, containing 66 classrooms, 2 large halls, laboratories, and a library.
- The school has one of the largest sports ground in the F/S ward. Our children have excelled in sports and theatre activities by capitalizing on such initiatives provided by an MCGM education department.
- Many initiatives by the government such as 27 items (shoes, raincoats, tiffin boxes, etc.), midday meals and other such facilities are provided free of cost to the students.
At Educo, the management ensures that we are strictly compliant with all the rules and regulations of the MCGM.
We are also abreast with the developments of RTE and its compliances in the school environment.
