Challenge

Machar Colony comprises of the Bengali and Burmese community who are stateless i.e. do not have the nationality of any country. The community members are unable to avail benefits in health and education available through the Government or other private institutions. The fear of discrimination and extortion has limited to movement of community members and with the identity being a prerequisite for admissions in various institutions have made it difficult for children to enhance learning.

Solution

Khel, a learning and recreational project of Imkaan have been able to provide traditional education through its holistic approach and development through sports. An audiovisual room will help in developing an effective model of literacy and learning by leveraging the power of technology. By providing an environment to the children of Khel where they are able to enhance their knowledge in science, geography, and other subjects by adding more to Imkaans approach to holistic learning.

Long-Term Impact

By creating a library and an audiovisual room in a community like Machar Colony, Imkaan aims to develop tech-based skills, for example, introducing coding to the younger generation, developing programs specifically catering to the girl child and introducing learning to the older women of the community through technology. As the majority of the community is Bengali speaking, an AV room will also help in teaching Urdu and English to the younger generation.
