In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Indian economy has been in a state of tumult. As it is the youth who will have to grapple with this fragile financial landscape, each and every one of us should be thorough with the what, how and why-s of finance. Information asymmetry in this realm can be pernicious and a threat to hard-earned income, irrespective of its amount. An impediment to being well-versed with finance among school students is an excessively theoretical approach in conventional curricula. Pedagogical innovation, peer group centric projects and real world financial know-how is the need of the hour for the professionals and change-makers of tomorrow.
The quest to bridge this gap begins at the grassroots level and with greater accessibility to resources. FUNance, a project with an aim to educate underserved students on complex and basic concepts consisted within commerce and finance, is organising this fundraiser to fund educational resources required for conducting workshops with students at Prajna Foundation in New Delhi.
These funds will be utilised to purchase a wide range of educational tools, books and basic equipment such as stationary.
