What is Sashaktikaran?

Sashaktikaran means empowerment. We at Sashaktikaran envision to provide an empowering education to all children in Rajasthan. We strongly believe, education will empower our children to make a well informed choice in their life and do what their heart speaks. We will work towards this vision by providing this education in schools in Rajasthan through teachers.

What do we mean by an education that empowers?

According to our vision an empowering education stands on three pillars. And if all three are build in coordination with one another since early childhood, we believe that the  child will grow up as an individual capable of making intelligent and informed choices and will have the courage to follow his dreams.
The three pillars of an empowering education are:

  • Holistic Curriculum -  There will be nine aspects covered in curriculum from primary to grade 5th. They will be: English, Maths, Hindi, General awareness, Dance, Music, Sports, Art. All aspects will be given equal importance and will be graded equally so that a kid in the school feels empowered to explore what he/she really wants to do.
  • Life Skills - Life skills are skills that help us manage and live a better quality of life. There are four most important skills that any individual should have in order to lead a successful and efficient life. Experiences will be created to endow kids with the following skills: Critical Thinking Skills, Expression with confidence, Problem Solving and Conflict Resolution Skills and Organization and Time Management Skills.
  • Values and Mindsets - There will be seven core values by which we will work and the very same values we will imbibe in our children. The seven most important values are: Respect, Gratitude, Empathy, Perseverance, Sewa , Ownership, Excellence.

What do we do?

Our mission is to create transformational schools through transformational teachers.We will ensure that students avail the best of education by developing our capacity in teachers. Teachers are greatly invested in their students to facilitate learning, provided they receive support and motivation. If teachers understand the importance of the work they do, and are valued for their efforts, can transform their student’s life. In turn, our teachers will have developed and assumed their roles as mentors, leaders and innovators. We recruit dedicated teachers from our very own city, to be trained over a period of a month. We will work together with the teachers we recruit as well as school teachers, and bring our mission to life.

Year 2017

This year we are associating with a low income private school- Geeta Ashram in Jaipur. Geeta Ashram has so graciously granted us to work with the students in their primary section to enhance and facilitate learning. Our goal is to provide students with an encouraging school and classroom culture, providing 175 students with six trained teachers to support them in their journey of becoming a mentor and a leader. Our belief is that every child deserves an education that empower him/ her; irrespective of their socio-economic background. With this in mind, we have envisioned our mission at Geeta Ashram. Through highly motivated and committed teachers, and innovative teaching-learning interventions; we aim to make the process of learning joyful, as well as, impactful.

Since this is our first year in our operation and its a low income private school, we will need funds for sustaining ourselves for at least one whole year. The school has agreed to provide us the infrastructure but we have to take care of student funds, stationary, audio and visual learning in the school, classroom aids, experiential field visits and teacher salary.

In the long term, we plan to make the school self sustainable but for few years we need funds. We are currently looking for funding partners who share our vision for an empowering education for every individual, and are able to support us in our mission to transform schools through transformational teachers.

Dear Supporters,

We finally have a school vision, our very own school pledge and prioritized values and life skills that we would want to focus on this year.

Our collective vision:
We asked our parents, teachers and students about their vision. Collectively this is what we all aspire for:
Three Rs - To raise respectful, responsible and rational leaders through an education that encourages them to dream, brings out their interest, is connected to their day to day life, enables them to make a well informed and well thought decision between right and wrong and makes them more aware of themselves as well as their surroundings.

 Our School Pledge
Based on our school vision one of our change makers Shivani wrote a School Pledge which we all (Teachers and students alike) speak in the assembly everyday these days.

That's how our Saturdays look like! Non-academic but a lot of learning. :D


Pictures in the beginning: Our kids did a nukkad natak on importance of education in the community on the occasion of Independence Day  ; Pictures in the middle: To celebrate DaanUtsav  our kids gave baaiji an early off by cleaning the whole school on their own. Through this they learnt to be responsible and realised how happiness can be derived from making others happy. ; Picture at the end: On the occasion of Diwalli our kids made Rangoli class wise and decorated Diyas. We celebrated a colorful and happy Diwali in our school.  And on Eid our kids hugged each other and wished Eid Mubarak.

With these updates, we take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been contributing in this journey. Gratitude can never be expressed in few words but here is a little attempt. :)

Please help us raise the funds and make this school an excellent one!

Dear Supporters,

Hello!We take this opportunity to thank all of you for the contribution that you have made to this initiative. We are taking our first steps towards our vision and your support at this point means a lot to us.Recently we conducted a 15 day Training Program called Anubhav in Geeta Ashram Children’s School. In one of the school teacher’s words: “Anubhav meri zindagi ka sabse acha anubhav tha. Aaj tak main bus subjects padhana jaanti thi. Ab mujhe bache padhana aa gaya.” In Dimple’s words: “I have lived in Jaipur all my life but 15 days at Anubhav were the best days I have ever spent in Jaipur.” Here are some glimpses from Anubhav.After these 15 days we visited the community to understand our context better. And then we started school from 1st July. Here are a few glimpses from our first week in school.
There are many changes that have happened in school since then. Hear it from our children only.
