Muskaan Dreams is an award-winning social impact organization recognized by Forbes Asia in 2019 facilitating enjoyable digital learning to rural schools. We are raising funds to transform 30 government schools in rural Madhya Pradesh and it will create an impact on 2000 children and 100 teachers approximately.

Started our journey in 2014 Currently, we are closely working with 80 Government schools, 12000 children and 300 teachers in 3 cities across central India through Digital learning classrooms. Our short term goal is to reach 15000 children by 2019 and the long term goal is to reach
1 million students by 2025.
What we do: We are providing digital learning classrooms to rural public schools and building the capacity of teachers in order to ensure positive outcomes from public schools by using digital learning classrooms and Innovative teaching methods. We are continuously trying to provide accessibility of digital tools to teachers and children, our model is low cost, easily usable for the teachers and sustainable for the long term impact.
One Digital Classroom cost is INR 70,000 (49 Inch LED Smart TV, Content, UPS, Keyboard, Mouse, and Operational cost) We assumed 35 children in each class. You can sponsor a complete classroom or you can sponsor a child for whole year INR 1999. 

Story from the ground: Once a small girl with rich dreams from a small village demanded her father to get her into that “big school” which she saw during a city visit". The father very unwillingly answered that he can’t afford the lavish and digital school for her. Later in the day when he cursed himself to be poor and insufficient, his friend made him aware of the Muskaan Dreams, which makes public schools into digital school, he gave him a hope to light up her daughter’s future.

Governance: We are a board-driven organization registered under the society registration act and NITI Aayog Darpan. we have also registered for Income Tax section 12A and 80G. Muskaan Dreams is committed towards good governance with all the systems, policies and Standard processes in place to ensure transparency and accountability. 

Donors benefits: In the first phase, we will provide an 80G Tax exemption receipt to all the donors along with organization details. In the second phase, we will send Invites to all the donors for the digital classrooms inauguration ceremony. We will also appreciate donors (Sponsors of complete digital class) by awards and social media acknowledgement.
Why we exist: In India, 80% of all the consisting primary schools are run by the government, one of the major reasons for the poor quality of education system is the absence of around 40% of teachers, lack of teachers training and lack of technical support to schools.
Muskaan Dreams is working towards filling this gap by using digital technology to help these children to build up their dreams. The digital tools along with the Hindi content of each subject are distributed to the public schools.
History: Muskaan Dreams was started in 2014 by Young social entrepreneur Abhishek Dubey along with few friends. Currently, operating in 3 cities of MP namely Gwalior, Bhopal & Indore. The social startup aims to transform 30 rural government schools in MP through Digital learning classrooms for the students with this funding amount.
Abhishek Dubey and Rishi Raj (Co-founders) Muskaan Dreams said, “We always wanted to support and dedicate our life serving the children from rural areas from a very early age. we believe that education in the rural segment should be promoted as it has a more significant role to play in the growth of the country”.
