Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group firm Reliance Life Insurance recently launched a project ‘School on Wheels’, for providing access to basic education to underprivileged children as part of its corporate social responsibility endeavour.      ‘School on Wheels’, was launched in association with Project Crayon, an NGO focused on Child Rights and Youth Development and was inaugurated by Tina Ambani recently.      “Our vision is to provide access to basic education to underprivileged children and open their eyes to their own potential and the world that awaits them,” Ambani said.      The mobile school would cater to the slums in and around Chembur and Mankhurd in the first phase.      The bus, customised to function as a school, is fully equipped with a computer and library, and has dedicated teachers. It would cover a few selected slum areas and would run a three-hour class at each of these centres, the company said in a release.      The teaching methodology would be non-formal and largely based on the Avehi Abacus syllabus.      Children would also be provided with toys and educational games as incentives to keep them motivated. Various other support services such as first aid, transportation to schools and health camps would also form a part of the programme.       ‘School on Wheels’ is a one-year project, which would be monitored and reviewed quarterly.
