Whitefield in Bangalore boasts of Fortune 500 companies, IT Giants, Gated communities,High-rise apartments,International schools etc.
But the Whitefield that I have discovered in the last 4 months is mind-blowing.
I discovered the villages that surround Whitefield, the villages which are not visible from the IT offices or apartments, the villages that support these companies & the apartments by sending drivers, security guards, housekeeping staff, gardeners, household helps, daily wage workers, the villages that are hidden but yet so integral to the ecosystem of Whitefield.
The local government schools in these villages are the lifelines for the kids from there. Despite the crippling lack of infrastructure & perennial shortage of teachers, the kids lookup to these schools as their passport to a better tomorrow.
This “Whitefield Paradox” started unraveling as I started my visit to these government schools where Enabling Leadership runs the “Just For Kicks” & the “Music Basti” programs.
These programs, as the name suggests, use Football & Music as medium to instill Life Skills in children studying in these schools.
Skills, which unfortunately their schools are ill equipped to provide, but that will be extremely relevant and important to these kids, as they grow up & step out into the world,
Enabling Leadership is stepping in to fill this vital void. After all the “Whitefield Paradox” is just not restricted only to Whitefield.
