We have been able to raise 20 lakhs of the program cost for the pilot year and are short of just INR 3,76,000 to set the ball rolling.
Now is when we need you the most. We need your one-armed hug, your influence, your faith and if possible your monetary contribution.
Per-student cost: 8,645/- per year
Or any amount of your choice :)
Each hand of support here will ensure that children in Kashmir get closer to what they deserve; that teachers in Kashmir aim for higher personal growth and that our community of change-makers grows stronger and wider.
Funds raised will make a part of the executive costs of the fellowship and shall be used towards recruiting fellows from within and outside of Kashmir.
Ours is a story of children choosing well-being, learning and change-making amidst pain, uncertainty and scarcity. This is a story of teachers becoming change agents and schools containing spaces for this. All packed in one program - Teach to ELICIT, a teaching fellowship modelling disruptive design in schools in regions impacted by conflict (piloting in Kashmir)

Teach to ELICIT is a pioneering initiative to address the pscho-social impacts of conflict on children in Conflict impacted territories. We do this by building a community of educators, who leverage mainstream classroom teaching to create well-being and constructive resilience for children, themselves and the community.
Our impact in the words of our students:
"Our dreams can come true, if we persist. What I learnt was not just for fun, but these skills can help me think about an alternative career. I feel that I can use my knowledge the way I like. And I want to help other people learn these skills too. That will be my way of contributing to Kashmiri society. Just like we spoke of our suffering through stories, there may be so many people out there who may have stories to be told too. I can do something about those stories too using the skills I learned here. I know that going forward I will be able to paint my emotions and decipher my discomforts.” - Affan Meer, student (name changed for discretion)
“Through out my journey as a facilitator, I would say that i have been a part of change. A change in the mindset of children and who they are. I knew they had changed when they said they wanted to be artists. They were provided with a psychological safe space and I could see them own up to that space. They exceeded everyone’s expectations including their own. It has been quite cathartic for me because I involved my self in the process and it proved to be quite refreshing. Throughout these month I learned how to work with children. It has given me the required skills to work with children from conflict zones. I intend to use this experience of mine to work with other individuals from conflict zones too.” - Amreen Fazli, facilitator (name changed for discretion)
