We are five friends working in education sector from last three years. This summer we have decided to visit the rural areas of our district and check how education system is working in those remote rural areas. In our visit we found that the condition there is very bad. By looking at that condition we have decided to start a school at a small scale. We were inspired by the enthusiasm that a village’s children and their parents exhibited at the possibility of a school being built in their remote village of Mean District in UDAIPUR. When we returned from that place, I knew I had to do something to help at least one child, perhaps with a monthly donation to some organization created to help the children of that village. When we discussed it with our friends and was pleasantly surprised that their reaction was very similar to us. They wanted to do something to help children of that village, and they wanted me to find a way to make it happen.
As we already run a not for profit organization named Seeking humanities which provides financial help to those students who are economically backward. So we have decided to raise the funds with this NPO only. We began a fund-raising campaign from numerous organizations and individuals throughout the community. We were touched by everyone's generosity. Till the date we are able to raise the $4,500.
We will build a small setup of five to seven classrooms’ school and a boring machine to supply the children and the village with fresh water. Later we will appoint a administrator who will be looking for all the task related to this project like construction of school building and appointment of quality teachers etc.
Our aim is to provide education to at least 100 children this year. And also making them learn to operate computer so that they can learn new things with the help of computer and internet connection.
The only future for the children of that village is the hope that education will provide these deserving children with the tools they will need to provide for a better life for their families. Please help those children.
We will work with youth (11-18 years old) those who really want to change him/her. Other than education we will be offering youth programs in October or November (depends on collection of funds) that activate youth in a learning environment that: integrates emotional and social development; cultivates creativity and cooperation; and facilitates the change from adolescence to adulthood. We will also be giving them the practical exposure.
What programs will we be offering?
- Community Sustainability: An after-school program that engages youth in community service-learning projects.
- School Engagement: An in-school program that collaborates with teachers to design and implement service learning initiatives that meet school-related objectives.
- Rites of Passage: A weekend program that enters youth in a realm of interpersonal growth and development via adolescent Rites of Passage groups.
Why donations are needed:
- To setup the infrastructure.
- To purchase computers.
- To provide books and stationary to students.
- To provide teachers for their travelling expenses.
- To meet the other expenses related to project.
MINIMUM START-UP GOAL: $50,000
And I need your help and support. I want to share this with each and every one of you.
