This integrated program of soft skill training uses the medium of creative arts and has impacted the lives of more than 4000 children and youth from marginalized backgrounds in Mumbai. We now need to expand and reach out to 450 additional children.
Children from marginalized backgrounds in Mumbai lack access to opportunities that promote their social and economic development due to various factors in society. These are impediments to fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the United Nations. The children are from nonprofit organizations mainly in Municipal schools and they strongly desire to achieve their dreams to live productive lives with dignity and respect.
CREATE's unique empowerment programs of soft skill training addresses this problem through the medium of theatre and creative arts. This program will educate 450 children in soft skills to develop an all rounded personality. The components of the curriculum cover confidence building, grooming, creative thinking, leadership qualities, spoken English, communication, values amongst others.
Through soft skill education, 450 children, will develop life skills required for better employment. These long term impacts would result in increased income at jobs, family economic growth and a better lifestyle for the family. Thereby creating "equal opportunity for all."
