Story

Help us Sustain!

We left our cushy job and put in all the savings to create a community that enables change.
Last year, we started this initiative in the small village of Manali where we started this journey with limited means but with a bigger vision. From going to villages and asking people to come to the community center for studies, the first month we started with 4 students and one laptop. 

With the little help and a lot of persistence, we were able to educate approx 60 students from 5 villages in the basics of spoken English and computers. With no grants coming and put in all that we had to facilitate the space and resources, we were banking on this year to sustain the operational cost. However, with the onset of the pandemic, we are unable to sustain the effort and reach out to you for establishing a computer center to enable and introduce these rural kids to the world of internet and online learning.

The grassroot level problems could be as miniature as parents not having a smart phone to technological knowledge. Such community center will aid to impart quality, knowledge and online resources to be made available for these kids. Also it will act as a center of career counseling and guidance in providing jobs.

Due to the lockdown, there is a general concern about graduating to the next class where in our efforts will be on imparting skill based education to empower them to be at par with their counterparts in cities. The infrastructure is sparse and resources are limited.

The cost incurred will be utilized for paying the rents, stationery, buying laptops or setting up computer labs and paying towards the amenities. The ongoing process of building a library (which currently contains around 50 books) to enable classics and course books to these kids.
The responsibilities in such a set-up will be shared and resources acquired as per requirements.

The community so formed has been doing an excellent job and we have been able to groom and teach more than 60 kids from 5 villages with basic english education, conversations and basics of computers.
We are also home to two lovely indie dogs, one adopted and other one was an abandoned dog. We intend to house more stray dogs who are generally thrown from the mountain or poisoned.
Help us sustain our operations and continue with our mission. And in return, for every contribution pledged, we will provide stay vouchers to witness the magic in action.
