In a delightfully refreshing news, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation or BMC is all set to undertake a noble initiative.

According to an article which was recently published by The Times Of India or TOI, the ‘signal school’ will be set up in five or six remodelled containers. Designed primarily for children who are from the streets, it is an upliftment project by the BMC.

The first such Signal School was initially set up at Teen Haat Naka in Thane. After the success of this school in Thane, the BMC now aims to replicate these schools in Mumbai as well. Hence, the very first signal school in Mumbai will be set up in Chembur.

The school will be located near Amar Mahal and will be operated in collaboration with a Non-Governmental Organisation or NGO.

In addition to providing education from classes 1 to 10, the schools will also provide other basic facilities like food and sports activities. Since the children do not have access to these, it is hoped that the school will allow students to equip themselves with the basics.

What is more, students who showcase an exceptional inclination to study and do well in these schools will be eventually sent to normal schools. If this initiative is successful, the BMC might replicate the model across Mumbai which will help improve the lives of many children.
