I believe education is one of the strongest tools for empowerment. But as an individual, it's difficult to do something to help improve the education system. So I decided to support someone who's making an impact in that regard - Apni Shala.
They've touched the lives of more than 2000 underprivileged children in a short span of 3 years with their educational programmes. And they continue to do great work in this sector through various initiatives.
My goal of INR 61,000 will help sustain the education of a total of 50 kids in 2 classrooms at a Municipal school for the next 1 year.
Am just trying to do my bit for this cause through the SCMM run and request all of you to support it whole-heartedly. Hope to reach this fund-raising goal soon with all your help :)
Did you like what you just saw?
I believe a programme like this could turn children into reflective, conscientious citizens and changemakers in our society. And this is Apni Shala's one of the programmes called "Service Learning Programme" for children aged 12-14 yrs.
Apni Shala Foundation designs and delivers such programmes for children from low-income communities every day of the year in Mumbai. This year, they're taking this to 200 children who have resolved to address 40 social issues ranging from community violence, alcoholism and addiction, right up to waste management. They will be putting in an entire year of effort to identify, investigate and try and resolve these local problems. And they need our help.
