We are delighted to share that Shiksha has been awarded Guidestar India's Platinum Level Certification for 2019-20!
Platinum is Guidestar India’s topmost level of recognition and affirms that Shiksha demonstrates the highest levels of transparency, accountability and good governance, accompanied by an exemplary level of public disclosures. We are proud to join the pool of India's most credible NGO's.
We have been busy the past few months, painting and renovating over the summer and upgrading our electricity capacity to enable more digital initiatives in the classroom. This recognition further motivates us in our mission to provide quality and free education and vocational training to underprivileged children and youth.
Thank you for your support of Shiksha’s project in Gurugram and stay tuned for more updates.
Siddharth has been residing in Jharsa Village, Gurgaon since his family migrated from Bihar seven years ago. Parental education plays an important role in a child's educational attainment, and unlike many other Shiksha students, his parents have completed their schooling up to Class X and he is not a first generation student.
Siddharth hopes to do well in Class V this year and earn himself a scholarship. He says "I am clear in my mind that I will not only complete high school but will attend college to become an engineer." His parents prior level of education provides positive reinforcement at home and encourages him to be aspirational. His educational path was well laid by his parents who were motivated to obtain their own basic education and recognize its value and the dividends it pays.
Please consider making a one-time or recurring donation to Shiksha and invest in the future of students like Siddharth to make an impact for generations to come.
Thank you for supporting Shiksha in 2018! One of the direct results of your contribution this past year has been the enhanced nutrition of the mid-day meal of our children by the addition of seasonal fruit into their diet at our Education Center in Wazirabad Village, Gurugram.
In October we marked World Food Day and renewed our pledge to work towards UN Sustainable Development Goal(SDG) 2, i.e. ‘Zero Hunger’ worldwide by 2030. The children who come to Shiksha are frequently undernourished and underfed; our provision of a free, freshly cooked nutritious meal attracts enrollment, improves attendance, and leads to their improved health and education outcomes. The eradication of hunger and malnutrition is within our reach and is essential to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for all. We all have a role to play.
We are busy preparing our Annual Report for the past year and look forward to sharing it with our supporters soon!
