Story

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected the Education of students across the world, leading to closure of schools during the lockdown. The children have been promoted to upper classes without having gained any knowledge. This situation has led to small children being unable to even read and write simple sentences. There is a huge gap between what the students ought to know and what they currently know. While virtual learning has become the new normal, we see a huge digital divide in the nation.
Akshar Shala is an initiative taken by the volunteers of the Organization. In this project children from around the city and nearby villages come to learn. The aim is to remove the knowledge gap they have due to the lockdown. Due to the digital divide the students from the marginalized communities have suffered the most. Akshar Shala is working for the children belonging to these communities and drop outs. The students also attend a weekly program called “Sunday Shala”, where the focus is on learning things outside of their course curriculum. They learn about the society in a unique way which involves active discussion. Students here get the opportunity to learn thigs which helps them grow as an individual. With 40+ students, Akshar Shala aims to touch the lives of 500+ students with your help. Under Sunday Shala we have also taught students about the constitution, Gender, Life Skill to make them aware.
