Story

YellowBag Foundation works in communities with high crime and low-income levels in Madurai. Here, children grow up in single room houses among constantly fighting parents or in a toxic and abusive environment. The poor economic background, social norms and peer pressure push the children addictive behaviours, school dropouts, entering an informal economy are the common alternatives to escape school.

THE CHALLENGE
In 2030, India will face 29 million skill-deficit, states UN. The current unemployment rate of 18.9% among the literate youth paints a strong picture of lack of employability and life skills in the current academic system. This adversely affects these children from the vulnerable communities due to their least access to resources and opportunities. The development of these children (relative to their peers from privileged backgrounds) has been stunted due to COVID without schools and proper guidance. Lack of skills push children to lose confidence in themselves. Children are scared to aspire and don’t dare to dream.

THE PROGRAM

We run 1 yearlong multiple skill development program to nurture confidence in children to build them happy childhood. The children become leaders who can exhibit his skills and teach his friends. Around 100 children are currently with us in this journey, 500+ children are yet to be supported.
The education initiative explores children's strong skills and helps them to cope with the weak ones, building exuberant confidence. This has proven to help the child make better and conscious choices for themselves. A confident child dreams to make the needed change within and in the community.

How can you support these aspiring leaders?
Through a donation of Rs. 4500, one child can complete one year of skill development.
YellowBag Foundation's education initiative caters to 500+ children in learning centers and schools from 4 low-income communities (Madichiyam,Karumbalai , Arapalayam and Sevalaya Boys Hostel) – by supporting skill development activities we are ensuring that children complete schooling and are ready to face the competitive world.
