This report presents findings and analyses from a research study commissioned by NEG-FIRE to identify the opportunities and challenges to education faced by the Nomadic Tribes and Denotified Tribes in the State of Maharashtra. Focusing particularly on the nomadic mendicants and entertainers found in the Latur and Solapur districts, it draws upon their socio-economic status, livelihood choices, migration patterns, awareness levels and attitudes towards education, in order to lay the foundation for a comprehensive intervention aimed at improving the educational attainments of their children.
This report is an attempt to document play(s) or Khel Se Mel (KSM) activities, which are an important component of the majority of its programmes, and help to promote socially inclusive practices among young children through the medium of plays.

The documented activities have been presented in the same manner as they are performed by children.
