Working with students across standards 4th to 9th, Apni Shala’s aim is to foster critical thinking skills, confidence, empathy (and more!) in kids thereby enabling them to live a life of their choice. Having studied in an education system that has always revolved around examinations, I can now see why life skills education is as important as it is.
The discussion around the significance of life skills was almost non-existent in our classrooms, more so in municipal schools. And this is exactly why I decided to run the Mumbai Marathon 2017 for them – to ensure that our children get access to education that will help them apply in real life what their books have taught them.
If you, like me, believe in the work that Apni Shala is doing and believe in the cause of life skills, you can contribute to my campaign.
I aim to raise INR 38,000 for this cause through my run in the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon (SCMM) 2017. The funds received will go towards sustaining life skills education of 67 children in the M-West Ward of Mumbai - a ward with one of the lowest Human Development Indices in the city.
Let’s makes lives better, together.
- You'll thereafter be informed about how you helped made a difference
- You get the chance to interact with the children you supported and accompany them during their projects
- You will receive email updates on stories from the field about how the children worked on these very serious issues
