- Four schools for children in slums in New Delhi We have four schools where we offer education to children that would not otherwise get it. These are: Baljeet Nagar School, Nehru Nagar Slum School, Zakheera Slum School and Pandav Nagar Slum School. We teach english, math and hindi.

Teaching the women different skills such as sewing, candle-making and running their own businesses is just a small step towards giving these women more freedom and confidence.

This not only provides former Thriveseed students with an income that they would not have otherwise had, but it also encourages current Thriveseed students to pursue their education to a high level so that they develop the maths, English and Hindi writing skills necessary to carry out this type of work.
