A Journey from Shady Restrains to Sparkling Freedom

                                                   ABOUT  US 
Out of all imaginable symbols of a gift, if there is one which can be felt, cherished and celebrated, it has to be education. Meeting the quality education goal will speed up the progress towards every other millennium goal. Started by, Delhi University student Nupur Bhardwaj, Let’s Educate Children In Need (LECIN) is an Organization which imparts education to underprivileged children with the help of regularly and uniquely developed curriculum and activities.                
It all started when Nupur decided to teach a few slum children while she was in the 2nd year of her bachelor’s degree. The experience had an exuberating impact on her and that sowed the seeds for LECIN. Initiated in May 2015 with one slum in Indraprastha, the organisation moved forward to work with children in the slums of Okhla, Mansarovar, and Kalkaji in just nine months. In the journey of two years, the young group had to face quite a few challenges, one being the unwarranted behaviour of the parents of slum children. Often drunk beyond their senses, parents not only stopped their kids from coming in but they also warned the volunteers and organisers to leave the slum and the kids alone. It was after heaps of convincing, that parents overcame the hesitation. Another hurdle in the road came in the form of unexpected withdrawal of volunteers, despite an understanding and good communication with the kids. It was then that LECIN started to organize interactive sessions and informal meetings for their volunteers and thus successfully attempted to establish a more cordial link between the organization and the volunteers. 
In just two years of its existence, LECIN has already helped 200 kids and worked with more than 100 energetic volunteers, working adamantly to achieve something notable. It was their immaculate work that brought the attention of numerous prestigious organizations on them. The evidence of such acclaim came as the Changelooms fellowship which was conferred by Pravah and supported by Oracle and GKS and helped them in realizing their own potential as young leaders in bringing about bigger systemic change that’s sustainable. Activities like public speaking sessions, painting sessions and impromptu sports based activities, has helped the kids to break out of their subservient, impoverished shell. They are today experiencing what it truly means to be liberated.              
                                           NAITIKTA  - INTRODUCTION
With Naitikta, LECIN has come up with a vision to raise the underprivileged to a level we would like to call ‘specially privileged’. The World Health Organization has laid down ten core life- skills, i.e., self-awareness, empathy, critical and creative thinking, decision-making, problem solving, effective communication, interpersonal relationship, coping with stress and emotions. 
We, at LECIN, aim to target the same life skills under the broader terms of social, cognitive and emotional skills. This project envisions stronger, self-sufficient and psychosocially competent individuals who tread forward in their lives with a widened horizon. We believe that such an approach will help these children rise out of their own shackles and those of the slums, and more importantly, of a restrictive mindset.

                          PROBLEM WE ARE TRYING TO SOLVE 
India has a majority of its population living below poverty line. Eventually, people residing in slums, or other remote areas, are more concerned about fulfilling their daily needs, which, sometimes, forces their children to work, rather than thinking about their future. As a result, these children always remain directionless; they do not recognize their potential. Further, being crude with their thoughts and actions, do not have proper decision-making and problem solving abilities. This is a consequence of the environment, which they stay in, which does not prioritize education and hence, children are not able to get opportunities to explore their talent. This, in turn results in them being under confident and hence unemployed which, further impairs their mental health. 

                                    DETAILS OF THE PROGRAM 
The methodology we plan to adopt encompasses a wide range of activities from story-telling and role plays to highly enriching ones like group discussions and survey based projects. The highlight of this project will include case studies and, real-life projects that will be taken up by the children themselves irrespective of their age. We also plan to acquire a space where sessions can be conducted in a disciplined and legitimate manner. Most importantly, to ensure quality teaching by highly efficient teachers/volunteers. LECIN aims to extend this program to as many as 200 underprivileged children over a duration of 2 years. The program shall be divided into two phases- Basic and advanced, at three locations all over Delhi and NCR, which includes, Okhla, Kalkaji, and Noida.

 We, at LECIN, have dreamed to bring a psychosocial change which is certainly a challenging task, going down to the root level and trying to change the fruit. We invite you to join us in this vision and contribute your part towards a better society.
Your minor contribution could create a bright future for the young aspirants.

Dear Supporters,

Life is a journey where the beginning is unknown and cannot be predicted, but the final destination is in the hands of the person. One's journey is in his/her own hands, but how would he/she decide its course without awareness of the possibilities, attitude to solve problems in life and confidence to be able to speak up his/her mind?

We at LECIN aim to do just that with our life skills education programmes – The project envisions stronger, self-sufficient and psychosocially competent individuals who tread forward in their lives with a widened horizon. We believe that such an approach will help these children rise out of their own shackles and those of the slums, and more importantly, of a restrictive mindset.

You can read about this exciting initiative and your important part in it in the upcoming issue of our newsletter, which we shall mail to you in May’18.
