Story

Zalkari Knowledge Foundation is a non-governmental organization registered under Section 8 of the Companies Act, 2013.

The Zalkari Knowledge Foundation has been working with local people’s groups to address issues related to the education, protection, and holistic development of children. We sensitize the parents and local bodies to prevent children from the risk of school dropout, child labor, child marriage.

Children in the districts of Raigad and Amravati have been facing a lot of trouble in getting familiar with online education. The below data shows the reality check of education.

Although 59.8 percent of them have access to smartphones with the Internet, only 30 percent are using the Diksha app the Maharashtra state’s online platform for educational content and other such online mediums. Of those who are not able to access online learning, 72.2 percent of parents do not have the digital skills to access the home package devised by the state and 66.4 percent of families do not have access to smartphones.

Availability of desktop and laptops among students is also negligible (0.8 percent). This is a clear social divide that impacts the learning and future opportunities of the children, especially from the deprived communities.

Action
Initiate Action for Children is an initiative by the Zalkari Knowledge Foundation to ensure children in marginalized and vulnerable communities from the Mumbai, Raigad, and Amravati Districts of Maharashtra State have access to quality education. The initiative is envisaged to create an enabling environment for children so they may get better learning. The major objective behind this initiative is to minimize the impact of covid19 among the children and retain them in school education.

Impact
The Foundation would like to conduct bridge courses for the children from grade 5 to grade 8 to eliminate their fear about school topics like Maths, Science, English, etc.

The foundation would like to provide school education kits to the children from the Tribal and other marginalized sections of the society to continue their learning. The foundation also would like to establish libraries in the villages, to enhance the reading and writing skills of the children. The intervention will serve about 920 children from these 10 villages. The government schools are considered for this initiative.
