School on Wheels


Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike’s (BBMP) School on Wheels (SoW) programme is an initiative to educate out-of-school children in refurbished buses. At least 10 buses have been set up by Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) with their interiors modified into anganwadi classrooms. The buses will be manned by NGO representatives, who will teach students in the Montessori style. The initiative will mainly cater to children of construction labourers. A door-to-door survey was conducted in slum areas with migrant workers to identify out-of-school children.
