This year a large number of Sikh children are facing problems in paying thier fees for thier schools and colleges. Due to Pandemic, thier parents have suffered job / salary losses and business closures. The most vulnerable are the ones at the bottom of the strata - the taxi drivers, plumbers and carpenters etc, who despite low incomes were trying to educate thier children in good schools.
EduSikh is trying to help all these familes with whatever aid is possible. We are connecting these needy childen to Gursikhs who are desireous of supporting and even mentoiring such kids and youth. The donations through GlobalGiving are helping us in making this mission of helping these children take admissions and pay thier fees. We want to make sure that no child is deprievd of education due to financial stress.
The selection of needy and deserving students eligible for scholarship was continued all over India. After Mumbai and Pune, eligibility tests were conducted in Dehradun, Nalagarh, Kolkatta & Patiala. The target of reaching 550 students is being met steadily and surely.
After the selection, these students are being divided as per their standard, and mentors are being assigned for a block of students. Along with that weekly guidance classes are being held in subjects as per the requirements of the students. Guidance classes are also held for the parents to make them aware of the need to constantly motivate their kids as also to answer their queries if any. The whole attempt is to provide whatever is required to take these 550 kids to the next level of excellence.
In the summer holidays, the plan is to hold English and Punjabi improvement classes and expose them to reading quality books through programmes like library visits, reading sessions, meet the author etc.
We are extremely thankful to all our donors who have been extremely supportive of all our programmes and we look forward to your continued support and blessings.
On the 550th year of Guru Nanak Dev ji's birth anniversary we started our EduSikh mission to help students financially and then helping them get better at their studies.
EduSikh project is a social project run by Sikhs who are committed to create the leaders of tomorrow in the community.
With your contribution and with contribution from many other donors across various platforms we reached more than 200 students and their families across 25 cities in India.
We conducted our assessment test for all eligible students who applied and all students who passed were awarded scholarships of Rs. 5000/- for their school fees and studies while additionally we started with providing them with mentoring and coaching classes for subjects their struggle with.
Our volunteering and mentoring program has reached more than 100 students of the 200 total students and we are geared towards a great year ahead with all our students
