I, Yogyta Bainsla, would like to tell you about their story. A story of unfulfilled dreams, hardship, and perseverance. As a Legal Associate, I work with Hamari Pahchan NGO. As a result, as part of my community service, I spend a few hours per week with these kids. Since our inception, we've been working on a project called 'DRISHTI.'The very idea of Project Drishti started from a single room in 2014 where we dream of providing the most important too to strengthen the roots of children i.e., ‘Education’. Working
day and night tirelessly on the same initiative, our team brought it into effect in 2016 with great impact. With the need of the current times, we are working towards introducing measures to shift our initiative to something that can be accessed via the internet. Through the means of “GADGETSHALA”, we intend to shift to a mode of online learning, accessible through gadgets such as mobile phones, tablets, and laptops. Furthermore, we have distributed textbooks, notebooks and other stationery essentials, doing our best to ensure all have accessibility to elementary levels of education. With online lectures and online sessions, we have the plan to move towards an online accessible environment. In conclusion to the same we are of the idea that from the beginning till now, our team is able to educate and make 11215 children’s future bright.
Looking forward to making the facility of internet and virtual education available to every child
residing in a slum area or being deprived of basic education.
1 Laptop costs around Rs. 25,000.
1 Tablet costs around Rs. 10,000.
We are aiming to provide a full library to these students equipped with gadgets.
I am requesting that you all take action. Every child's fundamental right is to have access to basic education and knowledge of oneself and society. We hope to maintain and broaden the scope of this belief through this project.
