I am Moksha, graphic designer by profession but also a staunch Mumbaiker. Somebody who would like to see my city grow. And to this nothing is better than to start at grassroot level, i.e., children's education especially children from vulnerable backgrounds.
We all know children from vulnerable backgrounds experience challenges in their daily lives. Moreover their current education system does not equip with them with social and emotional skills that help them deal with these challenges in a better way. Skills that can help them lead a happier life. But Apni Shala has decided to take these skills to children through its Life Skills programmes. These programmes give children opportunities to Question|Speak up| Understand themselves and their environment better|
Maintain healthy relationships| Reflect on their actions | Stand up for Change
and ultimately be themselves!
I'm attempting to do my bit for this cause through this run and request all of you to support us whole-heartedly. My goal of INR 20,000 will help sustain the Life Skills education of a total of 12 kids at Municipal school for the next 1 year.
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.
