Asude Foundation is a non-profit organisation which aims to strengthen the public education delivery to facilitate an equitable & holistic learning environment for children in India.
They are working in partnership with Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) to provide life skills education and career guidance to underprivileged children. Asude Foundation’s North Star Program brings together global volunteers to mentor 9th and 10th standard students in 4 municipal schools: AMC Mitmita High School, AMC Harsul High School, AMC Chikalthana High School & AMC Priyadarshini High School.
Earlier this year I had the opportunity to volunteer at Asude Foundation as part of the North Star Program. The organisation is taking deliberate efforts to engage students through a blended learning approach, and with the help of volunteers from around the world, expose them to concepts, careers and life-skills. They get to know about everything from playing the ukulele and travel experiences, to human resource in companies and gender equality. This is the kind of work Vyankatesh, Alria and the entire brilliant team at Asude are doing.
