The early phases of AWSAR are witness to imparting non- formal education to the children of two slums in East Delhi for establishing rapport and initial contacts with the community. AWSAR also worked for the awareness generation among the schools of Trilokpuri and Kalyanpuri slums in East Delhi for mainstreaming the drop-outs and children who did not go to the schools.
Later on AWSAR observed that a large number of organisations were working in the area with the same target groups. Only then AWSAR decided to move to a place where there is need of its services. In the year 2006 AWSAR started working with children and adolescent girls of Dankaur block of Gautam Budh Nagar district in India for mobilizing necessary support in the community. AWSAR, with the help and support of the community people especially women, started a balwadi for imparting education to the children in rural areas. Gradually, AWSAR expanded its work to 2 nearby villages where a dire need of education and awareness was felt.
This community led initiative motivated AWSAR to strive for building a strong network of highly committed and professionally competent community based institutions. Besides realizing its potential, AWSAR also recognized the potential of individuals at every level. The initial success in working with the people’s organisation and AWSAR’s in-house potential gave birth to a new idea for providing the required professional services to voluntary development organizations at the grassroot level, which need it the most for the overall development of the society.
