Nagar slum lies about 2 KMs away from JDV. The people who have been living in this place for the last 20, 30 and 40 yearsare from Karnataka. They came as construction workers and continue to do so and remain in the same situation and fate.Even after so many years they have neither the facility of electricity nor proper houses. They live by the road side and on the banks, if say so, of the drainage.

Since last year our students started visiting the slum with the intention of helping their children who go to Hindi, Marathi and Kannada medium schools. No children go to any English medium schools. So the JDV students (brothers and sisters) teach them English, action songs, and moreover visit the families. The people are very friendly and welcoming.
