    from Dehradun, Uttarakhand

Pratishtha Foundation is a non- profit organisation that works towards the upliftment of the weaker sections of the society. Its main motive is to educate the Children of slums through Activities and Practical Learning.

Our Motive :-
We believe that children know about themselves better than anyone else.
So we have a Democratic Learning system, in which children can choose their activities and learning methods on their own. We give them freedom to choose Activities according to their interest and need.

How it works:-

Children make their own student council and then the council works like parliament, where they discuss, make plans, schedules and take various decisions which are  related to them.
They share responsibilities and make departments like cleanliness, health and hygiene, Cultural, Attendance and Discipline department, etc.
Apart from this, they choose the Student Council Members by Voting and then members choose the President, Secretary and Treasurer. Voting is conducted every month(Student Council tenure is One month), then they run their own system. Our volunteers and teachers mentor them and give their inputs from time to time and conduct various workshops and activities for their learning.
Our main motive is to give them one hour evening class related to their studies and two hours Activity class of various skills, Like Dance, Art & Craft, Music, Singing and the main Focus is On Life Skills.
Impact and Stories :-
We made system with the help of children , where they learn life skills by being in that system.
We believe that, apart from knowledge and study they need Management skills, Leadership Skills, Communication and Coordination Skills for success in life. We want to give them Allround development and this freedom gives them the required Exposure. We have many success stories, like Manish (who lost his father 6 months ago). He is with us from last 3 yrs and now he is the President of student council. Student Council secretary Amit, documents all the meetings and now wants to open a Childrens Bank with the help of his team mates. Poonam, Kamini and Nisha, from Kitchen Team, they want to open a Food Stall in the next Summer Vacations.
They are free here, they can commit mistakes and learning from their mistakes they develop. And we can clearly see entrepreneurial skills developing in them.

They made their student council, they are learning how to take initiative, how can they play  their role as a better team person, the need of coordination for achieving goals and other life skills.


Our Next Step :-
For our Pratishtha Children we want to arrange Digital Education Centre.
Computer education plays important role in Children's career development. Computer with the internet is the most powerful device that Children can use to learn new skills and more advanced version of current lessons.
Computer is very necessary for them since they can’t get computer education in their schools and if any school has computer as a subject, there is no class for practical . So we want to add digital education in our curriculum.
We want to appoint a mentor, who will take care of all the things and he/she will teach children about that.
After that children can do things practically like they can store attendance in word file, they can make PPT for their meeting in Power Point, they can learn how to edit videos for their youtube channel and they can learn various dance steps and basics of other skills by surfing on internet and from there they can access more content.
We believe in practical learning and through their daily work children will learn all these things.
Computers and the internet not only help students to explore creativity and imagination but also help to understand technologies.
With the help of internet, children can get Better content and can learn many things by videos and different websites on their own.
