Challenge

Many of our children who start school are unable to continue beyond high school. Lack of quality education and socio-economic vulnerability forces them to drop out to take up employment. Not equipped with enough knowledge and requisite skills, sustained livelihood is a distant dream. This prevents them from changing the reality for themselves and their family. They need motivation, support to continue education, up skilled and handheld till they find sustainable livelihood opportunities.

Solution

The programme identifies students from socio-economically vulnerable communities and supports them financially to enroll to schools/institutions of their choice. The DSF Education & Development centre equips them further through regular academic coaching, mentoring & soft skill development. In the later stages, DSF Finishing School will hone their skills to increase their employability in their chosen career field. We create a sustainable ecosystem by involving communities and civil society.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that education is the critical instrument that can empower the students to reach their full potential and support the creation of an egalitarian world. Creation of sustainable livelihood options ensures higher human development indicators for the recipient family and surrounding community. The ripple effect will have positive influence on many others in the same league. The facilities and resources created will continue to cater to several hundred recipients over the years to come.
