Dear Friends,

As you are aware, IIMPACT not only empowers our girls, but makes a difference to the mindset of their parents and community. We help break down age old negative practices like dowry, child marriage and inferior treatment of females.

In this Quarterly report , we have included the stories of how we have made a difference.

IIMPACT started in 2003 with a vision  of establishing 2000 Learning Centres and impacting the lives of 60,000 girls .  We can say with pride that we will be achieving the same in the coming month  when we add another 200 learning centres.  With our combined efforts we have reached out to girls in far flung remote areas, enrolled them in our learning centers , provided quality primary education , helped mainstream them in senior schools and have phased out over 500 learning centres .  Happy to share with you that most of our girls are continuing their further studies, many of them are working and are financially independent.

The report also features the passionate story of two young cyclists from Mumbai, who want to bring about a change in society in a unique way by riding bicycles made of bamboo, from Kanyakumari in the South to Khardung La in the North, creating awareness of the importance of girl child education during the course of their journey. The duo aspires to raise and donate a certain amount to IIMPACT with an aim to sponsor the education of 1500 girls.  This campaign is backed by the Godrej group.   We thank the Godrej group for partnering with IIMPACT .

Attached is our Quarterly Update.

With Regards

Dear Friends,

This quarterly report is indeed a very special one. Apart from the regular updates on all the happenings at IIMPACT it carries some very powerful stories of our Champions, our brave young girls who have fought against all odds to benefit from IIMPACT's education program.

It is very hard for us, who are so blessed with basic comforts, to clearly visualise or relate to the kind of lives and circumstances that these girls manage to break away from. 

Similar case studies are numerous and each one as moving as the next one, but in brief IIMPACT has in some deep way impacted the lives of these girls and their family's entire life. Our learning centres impact the very core of the perennial problems of girls' education in the villages.  These stories are testiments in the true sense.

Our Refresher Training of the Trainers Workshop was a very important event.  IIMPACT's focus and emphasis on maintaining teaching quality is never lost.  Teachers are exposd to child-friendly teaching methodologies and receive constant inputs to help them effectively deliver multi-grade teaching within the learning centres.

A lot remains to be done this year as we continue to expand our reach and consolidate our existing program. We look forward to your ongoing enhanced support which will go a long way to help all of us at IIMPACT ensure that the destination and direction of IIMPACT's work continues to be fruitful.

With Regards

Dear Friends,

A New Year, a new beginning. Time to set new goals and new dreams !

May each and every day of the New Year bring you lots of happiness and good health.

IIMPACT currently runs 1200 Learning Centers across 11 states of India. We continue to witness the fruits of the efforts made over the previous years with your generous continued support. We see scaling up significantly in this quarter bringing a large number of out- of- school into the fold of primary education. This is thanks to more Corporates and Partners joining hands with us.

The last quarter was an exhilarating one. 

A major highlight of this quarter was the Mumbai- Delhi Cyclothon organized by Jasmeet Singh Gandhi who uses his passion for cycling to give back to society in his individual capacity. Our esteemed donor, RBL Bank, closely associated with IIMPACT for the last couple of years, generously stepped forward as principal sponsor of this exciting event – Umeed 1000.  Jasmeet Singh Gandhi, along with a group of RBL volunteers chose to take this arduous journey to highlight IIMPACT’s work and spread the word about the importance of girl child education. The funds raised will help IIMPACT reach out to a large number of out of school girls.

Another occasion to remember -  India’s 67th Republic Day which was celebrated by girls throughout the 11 states where IIMPACT works. We have received reports from various hubs. What was remarkable to see was the enthusiasm with which this occasion was celebrated, especially in the most remote and therefore difficult to reach locations, including the desolate tribal areas of Chhattisgarh.  The vibrant images of the girls celebrating in Chhattisgarh as well as some brilliant drawings, particularly a card which showcases our National leaders, the Flag of India along with the spirit of patriotism - are shared in the Quarterly Report.

We look forward to another IIMPACTFUL year ahead and thank you once again for joining hands with us and giving our girls the best gift – the gift of education.

With Best Wishes

Dear Friends,

Greetings from IIMPACT!

Wishing you and your families a prosperous and joyful Diwali - the festival of lights. May this festive season bring you good health, happiness and great success.

For the first time ever, GlobalGiving is offering Bonus prizes during Diwali for its Indian-based partners! We are excited to share that  more specific incentives to help mobilize our donors during the Festival Season are being offered by Global Giving.

For its India-based partners, GlobalGiving is offering four prizes for exceptional fundraising between November 5, 2015 and November 15, 2015.  We look forward to your support and help in bringing on board additional friends and family members this Festive Season.

We thank you for your continued support. Your support helped make the last quarter one that was full of achievements and success for IIMPACT.  We share with you the activities that were conducted across the IIMPACT Learning Centres in our latest Quarterly Review.

 

With your support we have been able to reach out to thousands of girls who were previously out of school. IIMPACT increased its geographical reach this quarter. Additional learning centres were established in deprived areas of Kanpur and Allahabad -  in keeping with our aim to reach out to more and more out-of-school girls with quality education.

 

Extensive Teacher’s Training Workshops were held across all hubs in order to help enhance and strengthen the high teaching standards maintained by our program, which in turn enhances the learning experience of the girls at our centres. A detailed special report on this activity is separately attached for your perusal.

 

Teacher’s Day was celebrated across all our learning centres with customary enthusiasm and energy. Each of our teachers was individually honored and celebrated on this occasion.

.

As the hot summer months slip away a large number of friends of IIMPACT and donors make it a point to visit our learning centres.  This quarter proved to be a busy one with several special visits for individuals and corporates being organized to our various locations. 

 

IIMPACT’s Annual Report 2014-2015 is being sent out to all our donors and well wishers for an overview of last year’s achievements, all of which would not have been possible without your unstinting support in spreading the light of education and impacting the bright future of a girl child.

 

Season’s Best Wishes
