Story

“लाइफ में दो चीज़ें जो मुझे सबसे ज्यादा पसंद हैं, वो हैं मेरी मां और सेकेंड मेरी स्टडीज़। दोनों मुझे आगे बढ़ने में हेल्प करती हैं। एक दिन मुझे जोब करके मेरी मां को हेल्प करनी है, लेकिन स्कूल में सब पढ़ाते नहीं। मेरे पास बाकी बच्चों की तरह लैपटॉप भी नहीं है, जिससे मैं खुद से पढ़ पाऊं। कभी कभी बहुत डर लगता है, कि क्या मैं कभी आगे नहीं बढ़ पाऊं।”

("The two things I love the most are my mom and my studies - both of them encourage me to go ahead in life. One day I want to get a job so that I can help my mom, but they don’t teach everything at school. I don’t have a laptop, like other kids, to learn on my own, so sometimes I am afraid that I will not be able to fulfill my dreams ever.”)
                                                            - Anjali, a beneficiary of Project Aagah


Studying in their dream university and working in a job that fascinates them is every child’s dream, but not everyone has the resources and guidance to make their dreams come true. In today's skill-based world, the underprivileged youth of India, with neither a degree nor the skills, would take the biggest hit.


The pandemic has created a digital divide in the education of the underprivileged youth of India. While only 36% of India's rural students have received learning material, only 11% have actual access to online classes, according to the ASER survey 2020. Their obstacles are endless, from lack of study resources and mentorship to domestic issues and social discrimination. Moreover, a disappointing gap exists between the skills taught in schools and those required in the job market, making conventional school education inefficacious. It is the need of the hour to help these children achieve their full potential.

We, at Enactus Gargi, toil towards mending the socio-economic divide in society. Project Aagah Fellowship Program is our effort towards eradicating the unsettling gaps affecting the underprivileged youth of India. We aim to make them self-reliant by imparting technical, communication and interpersonal skills and providing internships while fostering their mental health.

Not just teaching them, but we also look forward to financially assisting their education through a full reimbursement of their school fees. Furthermore, the children who outperform will be awarded a scholarship to fund their college education. We can help fulfill their dreams of breaking free from poverty and having a bright future, but only with your kind help!


Know more about the Program: 
We have selected 25 underprivileged children (between ages 13 to 16; particularly emphasizing on differently-abled, Covid orphans, SCs, STs, EWS, OBCs) with exceptional potential from across India through an aptitude test. The six-months long skilling program is designed and will be taught by academic and industry experts. Our knowledge partners have worked with renowned organizations and incubators like Accenture, TCS, TATA Motors, KPMG, etc. Click here to learn more about the programme.

Our programme would create a two-fold impact as follows:-

SOCIAL IMPACT
◆ Propagating civic awareness and skill development thus creating better citizens
◆ Lending a helping hand to the sections of underprivileged children 
◆ Striving for gender equality by giving a level playing field to both boys and girls under the Fellowship 

 ECONOMIC IMPACT
◆ Empowering students economically by imparting relevant skills for the job market
◆ Promoting financial literacy
◆ Ensuring a quality education for those who lack access to the same 


Our fellow patrons must know where the funds will be utilized: 

STUDY MATERIAL: Creation, printing (if required) as well as distribution of study material among the students 
TECHNICAL SUPPORT: Provision of smartphones/laptops/tablets to students in need of them; as prerequisites for the Fellowship 
SCHOLARSHIP: School fee waiver of meritorious students from July 2022- June 2023. Furthermore, this includes scholarships to the Top 3 Scholars. 
MENTORING SESSIONS: Curation of teaching content and dispersion of tutor fee 
OTHER LOGISTICS: For instance, enrolling students in competitions requiring an initial registration fee

Amidst the pandemic, the economic and social misery of the backward classes has worsened. This Fellowship program is a bright ray of hope. Through your benevolent donation, our program can empower children across India. Your support, irrespective of the amount, would add tremendous value to the lives of these children. Looking forward to your thoughtful contribution.
