Signal Shala (School in Marathi language, pronounced sha-la) was the concept brought by Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth (pronounced sə.məɾt̪ʰ bhārat Vyāsapēṭha meaning A Platform to Enable Indians). This school provides education and various facilities to the underprivileged children living on the signal. This school is located in Teen Hath Naka, Eastern Express Highway, Opposite Punjab And Sind Bank Signal, Thane West, Thane, Maharashtra 400602. The school operates below a flyover out of shipping containers.

These children sell products at the signal and sometimes beg. They miss out on their right to education amongst their other basic rights which we as a society are not even affected by in urban areas. Mr. Bhatu Sawant, CEO, Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth, is instrumental in solving this problem by launching a unique idea, whereby a school was created right under the flyover and helped these children to study and get a meal. The school consists of around 50 students out of which few have completed the 10th Grade examinations with flying colors.

nULTA Supports the Sustainable Development Goals

The Healthcamp

Sleeping on the streets and living in unhealthy conditions exposes these students to various risks. We nULTA are now determined to solve the problems around their nutrition, preventive and progressive health. Team nULTA and Signal School have organised a Health Camp on Saturday 8th 2020 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at the School campus. Basic health problems and illnesses will be diagnosed and free medicines will be provided.

We aim at raising awareness and solving these issues permanently while aligning with the goals of the Sustainable Development Goals laid out at the United Nations. The target to achieve these goals is year 2030 and nULTA believes that it’s possible to achieve it, provided that the members of the society, organizations, companies and other institutions work towards this goal together.

Check this TEDx talk by Mr. Bhatu Sawant and how he explains the necessity for us as individuals to be aware and reach out to those in need.
