    Economically weaker students

    from Pune, Maharashtra

Story

Sanjana, Anita, Ranjana, Vikram, Abhinav, Manasi, Chander, Alpana, Pranay (names changed to protect their privacy): are all students from economically weaker sections , studying in Maharashtra municipal schools. Their household annual income is less than Rs 1L per annum.

The education process of these students slowed down due to covid  but their ambitions did not. We, teenagers ourselves, had created a corpus of Rs 1.6L with personal contributions and the help of friends and family. This fund helped us support all these students to get certified in communication skills from Trinity College London.

These kids had to pay zero fees for the preparation and appearing for the exam. The cost of faculty and exam fee was borne by our contributions. After 3 months of coaching, these students appeared for the Trinity exam and passed with distinction.

Based on the certification , one of these students , who was in 12th Grade, managed to secure a full paid scholarship of Rs 20L+ to pursue education in a premier university.

Buoyed by this overwhelming experience, we intend to setup a learning and development ecosystem for economically weaker students(EWS), till Covid pandemic is normalized and schools open up in Maharashtra.

We want to onboard 500 EWS students (10 batches of 50 students each) and arrange classes to teach them Science, Maths and Communication Skills for 20-30 hours per month. This will be 20-30 hours per batch X 10 batches = 200-300 hours per month for 9th to 12th grade students.

The cost of content and faculty would be around Rs 2.5-3L per month for this engagement. We intend to raise Rs 10L to tide over the education challenge for these students for 3-4 months and then look ahead.

All we need is 1000 believers who can contribute Rs 300 each per month for 3-4 months. Your generous higher donations will always be welcome.
