Open Schooling is a system through which these adolescents return to the purview of education and complete their secondary and higher secondary through a flexible structure. The old project highlighted certain aspects such as the need for vocational skills to make them ready for organized and safe occupations especially because this age-group if excluded from existing social security network. Also important is providing this group with life skills education and strengthen them on their rights and entitlements through collectivization. Based on these learnings Project Freedom was designed.
