Under Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860. Reg. No. S/67563/2009
The NGO ‘Apni Pathshala Foundation”, a Non-Government, charitable, Social Organization, registered under government rule, is a free school for children deprived of Right To Education because of poverty, child labor, economic & social problems, etc. Apni Pathshala Foundation has been striving hard to transform the lives of underprivileged children re- siding in slums of Gurgaon. Started with just 4 children, today we sup- port around 100 students at three different centers around Sohna Road, Gurgaon : one centre at “Uppal South End” and two centers in “Fazilpur village”. Around 25 of our bright students have been admitted to Delhi Public School sec-45 & D.P.S. Maruti Shiksha Kendra, Gurgaon, We have 10 students registered for secondary course by National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) whose complete expenses are borne by “ Apni Pathshala Foundation”.All initiatives of the organization aim towards ful- filling the vision of literate India.
Our major program: 1.We promote and provide free education to under privileged children and help them in all respect to enable them continue education with spe- cial emphasis on educating the ‘girl child’. 2. Relatively brighter students are mainstreamed in schools such as Delhi Public School (Shiksha Kendra). 3. Others are taken forwards to secondary and Sr. secondary through “National Institute of open School’. 4. Kids not interested in completing secondary or Sr. secondary are given vocational training and helped in proper placement. 5. Those who would wish to pursue graduation would also be facilitated through open university(IGNOU).
The NGO believes that the desired changes in the lives of such children will come only when more and more privileged people with a strong de- sire to bring changes, participate proactively in finding solutions for these children.
Idioms are words, phrases, or expressions that cannot be taken literally. In other words, when used in everyday language, they have a meaning other than the basic one you would find in the dictionary. Every language has its own idioms. Learning them makes understanding and using a language a lot easier and more fun!
Here are some examples: “break a leg” is a common idiom which means do your
best and do well. ‘To rain cats and dogs’ means to rain heavily and not a situation where cats and dogs are fal- ling from the sky. ‘Over the moon’ means extremely happy. ‘To sit on the fence’ can literally mean that one is sitting on a fence. However, its idiomatic meaning is that one is not making a clear choice regarding some issue. Similarly ‘be the apple of someone's eye’ means be some- one's favorite person.
The origins of the word 'Idiom' The origins and meanings of the word "idioms" are from the Latin word 'idioma' meaning individual peculiarity of language and the Greek words 'idiousthai (to make your own) and idios' dictionary meaning own, personal, pri- vate.
