Help to provide holistic education to less privileged children

Every child is born special. But for many of them their fate is determined before they are born. Their dreams are curbed and any thoughts of outgrowing their surroundings and creating a brighter future are crushed at a young age.

More than 70% of India’s population are either illiterate or school dropouts. More than 40 per cent of the children never reach Class 8th and only 19 per cent of Indian students enter college.

Why should the future of any child born into this world be defined by anything other than themselves?
Why is accessing equal opportunities so difficult? Why is the quality of resources available to each child different?
We believe in the right of each child to have a dream and the responsibility of every individual to help that child grow towards that dream.
It is with this vision that Leaders For Tomorrow took up our project: Igniting Young Minds (IYM) in 2009. Our young leaders work with children from slum areas, shelter homes, rescue homes and rehabilitation centres to help provide them with life skills training, academic support and creative development to enhance their personalities.

These children of urban slums are often trained by the harsh way of life and have more confidence than their sophisticated counterparts. But what they do not know is how to channelise this confidence into 'creative energy'. It is here that IYM hopes to make a difference.
IYM is working in more than 50 shelter homes in Delhi/NCR and is spreading its wings across cities including Bengaluru (Karnataka), Jaipur (Rajasthan), Rampur (U.P.), Lucknow (U.P.), Karnal (Haryana), Yamuna Nagar (Haryana), Kanpur (U.P.), Thissur (Kerala) etc., touching lives of over 30,000 children.

These sessions are helping them come a step closer to realizing their dreams.Your kind donations are essential to reach out to these children who have dreams in their eyes but little support in attaining them.


With your support, we will be able to train more leaders across the country and take this project to locations were more children await with such needs. Each donation you make helps us organise and train more leaders, each one who works toward providing holistic education to 10 children.So come forward, donate to help them grow to achieve their aspirations!
Contribute to changing the young lives around us!

Lend a hand, help ignite these young minds and be the reason for their dreams to come true!
