    from Bengaluru (Bangalore) Rural, Karnataka


I am Niwas Kumar/Sarkaar, I am 21 years old. I live in Bangalore but basically, I am from Jamui, Bihar. Currently, I am doing Masters in School of Education from Azim Premji University, Bangalore.

After completing my intermediate, I started working with the i-Saksham organization in 2015 and worked till April 2017 for providing quality education in remote and Naxal affected area in Bihar. After this, I went to Jagriti Yatra 2018-19 and then joined Project Potential Organization to incubate the entrepreneurs in rural areas with providing support for skill training, grant pay, mentoring and marketing.

After working on education and entrepreneurship, I realized that without merging education and entrepreneurship, we can't develop a just equitable and equal society. So, I joined Azim Premji University to understand what is education? What is the aim of education? What is quality education mean? In the Azim Premji University, I got 70% scholarship and for 30% I took the loan by Bihar Student Credit Card.

With doing MA, I have designed a not for profit social enterprise model for empowering to third genders and currently, I have a small team of 4 members. Our idea of not for profit social enterprise got selected in Janhit Jagran Social Enterprise city idea pitch and also I got the opportunity of going in the boot camp of IIM Calcutta in Feb 2019. On this project, we are working from the last 9 months, we faced many failures because we have very limited experience of starting a social enterprise with third genders. So, I applied for Social Enterprise Bootcamp organized by Rishihood university and Vision India Foundation from 5 to 9 July 2019 in Delhi. After shortlisting application I also got selected after the interview and got the scholarship of rupees 12500. But yet, I need rupees 17500 to pay for this camp for accommodation and food. I have to book the ticket for both sides of my living place to boot camp.

But I have no money to pay for this camp, but I need this camp. Because I have very certain skills in running a social enterprise. Yet, I have a small team but we have not started our enterprise. This camp will help to become professional in management and will create a network of social entrepreneurs and will get ideas from other entrepreneurs. This camp is more important for me because we are going to work as an incubator of the social entrepreneur. But before doing this, we need to learn first, and this boot camp can be a great platform for me. I realized this need when I attended the first boot camp organized by IIM Calcutta and Janhit Jagran.

Please help me to attend this camp because I need this camp to develop my ability for social change.

Please share it with your group and network for the support.
