Prayaas Ki Pathshala - Crowdfunding Dreams of Underprivileged children

On the birth anniversary of Kalam Sir, help us create an India of their dreams, of our dreams. I believe, students/children of today are the leaders of tomorrow. It won't be wrong to call India a student country. Educated Indian youth will help us reap the benefits of a favourable demographic dividend.

Why this Fundraiser?

Nearly 2 million children live on the streets of India unprotected, invisible. Let’s do whatever it takes to ensure every child is protected and has access to their right to shelter, education and essential entitlement. Currently, we are transforming 3000 slum children by providing them free education, nutrition and skill learning at our Prayaas Ki Pathshala schools.

About Prayaas Ki Pathshala Schools:

A place where underprivileged children receiving free education, nutrition, skills and employability projects at our school -Prayaas Ki Pathshala. A Place where children living in poverty have access to life-changing benefits, like medical care, educational support, life skills and job-training before they clear high school.

Prayaas Ki Pathshala school is a unique dream project of us which aims to support unprivileged children devoid of necessities and opportunities.

Our Theory Of Change:

With a dedicated focus on fostering growth through learning, supporting nutrition and enhancing lives of the underprivileged, Prayaas Ki Pathshala schools are effectively running and training our children in many vocational courses so that they can be equipped with required skill set.

At Prayaas Ki Pathshala centres, we believe that drop out children and the ones who prefer to go to work than school due to economic constraints, can be brought back to the mainstream education by equipping them with these skills so that they can get economic remunerations also along with education.

Our little kiddos at Pathshalas, are receiving the economical remunerations of the products they are making at Pathshalas as we sell them via our own e commerce Khushiyon Ki Basket and transfer the amount to their parents at the end of the year. This way, we are supporting them economically and their children are receiving quality education, nutrition along with the skill set at our Pathshala Centres.

At Present, children at Prayaas ki Pathshalas are working on Clothes Bags, Paper Bags, Potli Bags, badges, to name a few. This is a part of our 'Earn While Learn' initiative under the vocational education provided at Prayaas Ki Pathshala school centres.

We believe that through our innovative interventions into the system with our proven model, Prayaas Ki Pathshala, child begging can be eradicated and they can again be brought back to the mainstream.

Teaching our children the value of tolerance and mutual respect by investing in the schools and teachers will build a fair and inclusive world that embraces diversity. Let us fight for peace and defend it with all our might. We, at Prayaas Ki Pathshalas, across Rajasthan & Bihar are trying to practice the same.

What do we want to achieve?

During COVID we are currently able to reach 700 children regularly and want to extend the reach to 600 more children by taking our work to more slum areas of Jaipur, Ajmer, Munger through our Prayaas Ki Pathshala learning program to ensure their education is not discontinued due to the closure of schools, lack of digital access and COVID restrictions. Also, keep them away from dropping out of school altogether, engage in child labour, and subject to child marriage and abuse.

Why education matters for peace & India's Demographic Dividend ?

👉 Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.
👉 Education encourages independent thinking, and it opens doors to new ideas. Independent thinkers tend to try to make sense of the world and draw their own conclusions instead of blindly following the beliefs of others.
👉 Coupled with independent thinking, critical thinking skills can lead to innovative solutions and alternatives to violence.
👉 Through quality education, students may be armed with the tools to work within their communities to solve problems, or to do so on a global scale.
👉 Education reduces poverty.
If poverty were reduced, violence would follow suit.
👉 With quality education, a child can learn the quality of empathy and understanding towards those who are different from them.
👉Through quality education for all, around the world, by promoting education for peace, young people can be the voice of change and peace.

Join us in creating opportunities!

Working in urban slum areas comes with its challenges. Because of the rise in unemployment due to covid, many children may go back to labour. Through our Pathshala's Earn while Learn initiative, we want to support their families by making them learn skills and prepare products and simultaneously education can also be continued. We want to raise Rs.15 lakh to sustain and create learning opportunities for 600 more Students from marginalized communities in Jamalpur and Jaipur block to continue their education during COVID-19.

How will we use your contribution?

Most of the poor families have lost their jobs during lockdown and they have difficult time to survive. In this hard time they cannot have money to spend for the education of their children. We are going to provide stationary along with educational kits to children of construction workers, daily wage labourers, auto - taxi - truck drivers, carpenter, vegetable sellers, domestic worker, single parents many more. Most of the children are from slum areas of Jaipur, Ajmer & Bihar.

We have targeted 3000 poor children of these cities. We are going to support with educational kits which includes 1 dozen of notebooks, pencil box, pen box, sharper, eraser, compass box, drawing notebook and basic activity books of Hindi, English and Maths. Out of these 3000 children, 600 children will be admitted under our Earn while Learn initiative -  a skill learning based program at Prayaas Ki Pathshalas.

We request to support this Prayaas Ki Pathshala Charity School project as much as possible so that the 2020 year would be a little bit good for them.
