Support education of children in extremism affected areas

I believe I run to be a better version of myself. Can running also help us achieve a better version of the world?

I will be running the Half Marathon at the Tata Mumbai Marathon this year on 21st Jan and using this platform to support I-saksham’s efforts in bringing quality education to children in remote and unreachable areas

What is i-Saksham?
i-Saksham is working in remote and conflict-ridden areas of the country (Bihar as of now), where local youths are selected and trained in use of digital technology, text books, pedagogy and other relevant tools and techniques to deliver quality education, using low-cost android tablets. These trained youths, significant of whom are girls, in turn run tuition centers where they teach community children at a nominal fee, under the mentoring of i-Saksham team, thus providing them with in-village earning opportunity.

This video link gives a glimpse of the work i-Saksham does.
 
 What is the current scale of i-Saksham and future plans?
 
As of today we are working with ~250 youth, 100 of whom have completed training and 150 are under training. In addition to this, 40+ tuition centers and 1,000+ students are being actively monitored.
 
i-Saksham aspires to build community of 50,000 tutors, cover 5 Million children and provide avenues of skill development to 500,000 youth on various vocational trades by 2025 along with building a sustainable and an expandable model.
 
How can you help?
 
The budget outlay for 2017-18 is INR 7 Million, out of which INR 3 Million will be funded by National Skill Development Council (NSDC), INR 1 Million by internal sources and balance INR 3 Million to be arranged through family, friends and their network.

For the first six months, we are looking at a target of 15 lakh.
 
We seek your financial assistance (through you and your friends). Whatever you contribute will go on to make a big difference along it being available for 80G tax benefit under the Income Tax Act.
