Challenge

YEFI addresses the lack of infrastructure and education options for children from the slum community since many less-expensive public and private institutions have poor infrastructure, lack of commitment from teaching staff and there's negligible accountability. There are also few NGOs who have long term vision and provide holistic 360-degree education while planning ahead and preparing the children for the digital age and current new world challenges.

Solution

Our partners show greater accountability and transparency on progress and impact. There's scope for employee volunteering to mentor students and impact community development as well. YEFI's long term vision lays the foundation for career growth and improvement in the quality of community life. This will result in further reduction of the the dropout rate from schools thereby ensuring children have strong foundation to explore more options for higher studies and careers advancement.

Long-Term Impact

YEFI has been partnering with these NGOs for over 10 years now. The relationship has begun to bear fruit with students now beginning their careers in an industry of their dreams. Students of the YEFI sponsored school are now employees of large corporations and hospitality chains such as Cisco, iGate, Hilton, etc. The vision is to exponentially increase the opportunities for these children and groom them for successful higher studies and career options.
