Story

Project Shivdhanushya, brain child of the Shiv Shikshan Sanstha, aims at breathing life back into schools that are on the verge of shut down. With the motto – Low Cost High Value Education, the interventions are targeted at aided vernacular medium schools in Mumbai Metropolitan Region [MMR].

The myth that children can develop only through English medium schools has been busted by D. S. High School. With Project Shivdhanushya we will replicate the same model in over 200 schools to revitalize them. This project will impact the lives of more than 2 lakh students over the next five years.

Project Shivdhanushya is already being backed by the honorary efforts of the Alumnus of D. S. High School. The wheels have already been set into motion. Now, we need your help to take this initiative forward.

A lot of vernacular medium schools have been shutting down across Mumbai due to various reasons ranging from lack of funds to low admissions due to low perceived value of the education.

How do we intend to use the funds?
Right now we have a total of 14 activities that help children get a holistic education. Here is the list of activities that are currently being conducted:

  1. Progressive Education
  2. Spoken English
  3. Sports
  4. Computer Lab
  5. E-Learning
  6. Library
  7. Science Labs
  8. Fine / Visual Art
  9. Music
  10. L. D. Rehab
  11. Counseling
  12. Vocational Guidance
  13. Spiritual Sciences
  14. Skill Development
The response from the children involved in these activities and their parents is overwhelming at DS High School at Sion, Mumbai. Now it's time to take this initiative to all the other schools across Mumbai. The cost of supporting one student with all these activities for one year is pegged at Rs. 9595/- So you can imagine the amount of money that needs to be generated to support this project. We have also received tremendous response from large corporates as part of their CSR initiatives.

With a little help from you, financially or by spreading the word, we can make life better for a lot of underprivileged children across the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. We do intent to take this initiative across the country to all the underprivileged children across India. But we had to start somewhere, so we here in our own city.

Please do consider making a donation and/or sharing our campaign with others. We much appreciate every effort. Thanks.
