Door Step School launched the "Every Child Counts"- Citizens' Campaign in 2011 in Pune, India. This program is aligned with the UN Millennium development Goal of "Universal elementary education for all by 2015".
The Key goal of the Program is to reach and enrol all children in the age group of 6-7 into mainstream schools. Specific focus is on reaching the "highly marginalized" children living on construction sites, roadside dwellings, unauthorized slums who are migrant and therefore often deprived of their Right to Education. According to a recent UNICEF report an estimated 16 million children in India migrate annually, resulting in non-enrollment and disruption of schooling.
