CREATE Foundation- August 2020

As the country and the world went into lockdown, we at CREATE foundation began thinking about the migrant laborers & daily wage earners and the plight they were in due to these unforeseen circumstances. After reaching out to our family, friends & well-wishers from India & all over the world. We managed to gather quite a bit of funds and disbursed it equally to 4 different non-profit organizations, name and website mentioned below:

1. Youth for Unity and Voluntary Action (YUVA)
Yuvaindia.org

2. Habitat for Humanity India Trust
https://habitatindia.org/

3. Bharat Uthan Sangh

4. Mantra Foundation

5. We also donated food to daily wage laborers in the remote areas on Mumbai.

We are ever so grateful to all our donors for thinking of those in need when the world was going through such trying times.

On the other hand, we decided to do our bit as the mainstream schools and workshops started making its presence felt online, CREATE couldn’t help but think about our children from the NGOs, whom we have been associated with for many years now. So we conceptualized and created a session wise plan for all these children, keeping in mind their learning capabilities, limited resources, and their attention span.
We are firm believers in the fact that education & giving go hand in hand.
Also attached are some pictures of how our funds were utilized to help the needy run their homes and some screenshots from our online classes with The Society for the education of the crippled (SEC).
Meanwhile, we hope your entire team is home & safe.

CREATE Foundation- April 2020

CREATE Foundation as a part of their Soft Skill Training endeavor, has utilized the funds received to start 13 classes with 7 NGOs in Mumbai, reaching out to approximately 335 students from marginalized backgrounds to impart soft skill training.

CREATE Foundation is pleased to inform you that we have successfully completed our very first academic year for soft skills training through Speech and Drama and are almost through with the completion of our second academic year.

Syllabus for the children for Soft skill and life skills training is specially curated after careful consideration of their requirements and after feedback from our instructors post each session. We add or subtract fun activities, speech exercises, Theatre games, etc based on what the children can relate to the most.

Our ongoing singing program for a visually challenged NGO and dance classes for an NGO with children having hearing impediments have also received great feedback from both parents and the children who excitedly and eagerly look forward to every session.

The goals of these activities are to build personality, confidence, interactive skills through our Speech & Drama class which covers speech exercises, enunciation, vowels, pronunciation, age-appropriate poems and correct pronunciation of English words. Using the medium of the creative arts, the children have participated in various fun activities in every session, like a role-play in a real-life situation in which they can relate to, like at the market or at the fair, acting in an ensemble, theatre games like “Continue the story”, “Form shapes with your bodies” etc. bringing and fleshing out the ‘actor’ in them.

Through our Dance & Singing class, we help with social interaction, voice modulation, teamwork, creative thinking, memorization, etc.

Grooming: Through our grooming sessions, we help develop many skills namely interview etiquette, basic greeting, communication, interpersonal and social skills. 

Amidst this lockdown in our entire nation, keeping in mind our children from all the NGOs. We made sure to research and send them weekly assignments which consisted of reading to improve their vocabulary along with audio files for guidance while they practice. And, animated moral based stories for younger children. The feedback from all the NGOs and the children have been truly overwhelming so far.

Attached to this report are some stills from our fun-filled sessions. 

PLEASE NOTE: Not all NGOs allow photography/videography during class, resulting in us not having pictures of sessions at a few NGOs.
