With 35% of the country still illiterate, the state of education in India is not where it should be for a number of reasons. We work with a number of local partner organisations- schools, a relief settlement and vocational schools, our aim is to empower individuals, especially students to create a new future for themselves by increasing access to quality education through scholarships for all ages. Working towards SDG4 - we hope to increase the number of children in school and improve education
The education in India is suffering for a number of reasons namely; Lack of funding, local slums are home to families that live on less than $1.50/day and can't send their children to school; high drop-out rates, poor primary school education and expensive tertiary education. The few people who do finish and become skilled often leave the country for better employment essentially worsening the economy of India. With 35% of the population illiterate the need for intervention is highlighted.
We aim to provide quality education and English tuition to those who otherwise couldn't afford it as well as improving the education already provided through capacity building, funding educational resources and especially funding scholarships for children to attend schooling or higher education. Our mission is to empower the members of the community to create their own future through increased access to employment opportunities as well as motivate the children who are in school to continue.
Through constant communication with our local partners and beneficiaries, we will be able to access our impact and pinpoint needs. In the long-term, we aim to increase the number of children from the poorer areas who have access to quality education, lower drop-out rates and increase literacy in the areas. Our mission is to utilise funds to benefit these children's lives through scholarships and resources, eventually increasing employment opportunities and improving India's economy.
