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.

Dear Friends,
Best wishes on the Republic Day.  i-Saksham would take this opportunity to share The Preamble to The Indian Constitution:
"WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens
JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity; and to promote among them all
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;
IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY this  26th day of November, 1949, do HEREBY ADOPT, ENACT AND GIVE TO OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION."



i-Saksham is doing its part to provide EQUALITY of Opportunity in some of the most backwards geographies of the country. We are grateful to all of you for your faith and support.

We have started new campaign for this year, Milaap is matching INR 100 thousand for every INR 500 thousand raised by i-Saksham . A number of you are contributing on this old campaign. We are stopping this campaign and would request you to support us on the new campaign.
