Summary

This project will support 260 at-risk Children in urban (Pune and Bangalore) and rural (4 villages in Dharwad, Karnataka) India through our Build Maya program, focused on enabling children to develop leadership skills and life skills using Lego. The program uses Lego in a fun and engaging way to enable children between 9 to 14 years of age in public and low-income private schools to collaborate, reflect on and connect first-hand experiences and learnings from the classroom with their real lives.

Challenge

Over 110 million children in India are enrolled in government schools, where they do not get the opportunity to develop essential life skills. This critical gap, wherein these children are not equipped to become responsible and employable citizens, is leading to a continuing crisis in our society. United Nations recognises this crisis in the form of needing to develop 'global citizenship skills' under Sustainable Development Goal #4 of providing inclusive and equitable quality education.

Solution

We believe every child can be a leader (positive contributor, role model, global citizen) who will become a responsible, employable adult driving change to solve 21st-century problems in school, at home and in communities. Build Maya develops life skills and focuses on gender equality (UN SDGs). Our group-based co-educational model includes Lego sessions, play dates & showcases bringing local communities together. Children design and present solutions to the daily problems they face.

Long-Term Impact

This project will enable 260 children to be equipped with life skills through creative mediums, innovative methods, and local and global community involvement. The program will help them navigate through the complex, highly interconnected life in the 21st century. The program also exposes students to STEAM concepts to solve real-world problems that will help them create a positive impact.
