Help Children From Rural Kolhapur Continue Their Education

Our children are first generation learners who are challenging the status quo to break the vicious cycle of poverty! 

What is the challenge?
Almost all of our children are forced to work in different capacities to support their family. Most of the children come from broken families and fight social stigmas. Lack of motivation, confidence and a role model is a deeper problem in the communities that we work with. The challenge is to ensure that the dreams that are born in the eyes of these children take wings of possibility!

About Insight Walk
Insight Walk fellowship is a rural movement to ensure children of rural India lead a meaningful life and create a life of passion and purpose. We work with children of age group 6-14 years who are already outside the mainstream education living in the remote villages.


Why we do, what we do?
343.5 million children from rural India are on the risk of not making a career out of their passion for no fault of theirs! We are here to eliminate what is unfair. Their background should never dictate their destiny. For us, every child deserves a limitless sky!




How will we use funds?
We set up Innovation Lab cum Community Center in the village, where a fellow/teacher works with the most vulnerable children from the village. Our fellows are females (mothers, elder girls who dropped out from college) from the village itself who spend 3-5 hours everyday with children.
At Community Center our major focus is on building life skills via:
• Teaching literacy and building reading and writing skills
• Teaching science and innovation using local resources
• Teaching hobbies to help kids explore their passion
• Focusing on mental well being by sessions conducted by our clinical psychologist




Early successes that we have seen:
While there's a long journey ahead, we have seen many moments that make us proud of all our children and their parents. Some of them include:
• All our children who come at Center in the two villages can now read and write in Marathi (none of them
could read or write when we started)
•All the girls that we are working with are now attending local Government school with an average
attendance of 85% post Diwali
• All our children have student work around their hobby for the last two months
• On an average every child reads 6 books per week from library
• As of 20th December, 2017, 70% parents agree that they will encourage their children to continue studying and exploring their passion

Hi everyone,
It's being long I have written about what's happening on ground. While last couple of months was new beginning for us, we also decided to spend 80 percent of our time as a team on ground with children and their families. Getting to know their journey, day to day life and building strong relationships was our prime focus.

I am excited to share three highlights that captures our journey best:
1. We have setup our first low cost Innovation and Passion lab in Laxmiwadi. This lab is a space full of tools, books, trash and everyday resources with which children learn science, innovation, stitching, crafts, literature and much more. In the first month, children made a curd churning machine using trash and a motor, a solar cooker and are studying about agrarian crisis by spending time with farmers.

2. Expanding fellowship to more villages: We started with Kapurwadi in August and are studying two more villages this week. With every new fellowship that we start, we are learning from our processes and constantly improvising our intervention. I will share more on this soon.

3. Building team on ground: This month has been a fresh start as a team for us. We are building team on ground and are onboarding a team of female staff from tier 2 and tier 3 cities and towns. The purpose is also to create a team that challenges status quo and inspires many more females from small towns and cities to be the change.

I want to thank you once again for believing in what we do. We have some this far with your support and I feel we can do much more in the coming months.

It was my birthday on 16of oct, and due to all heavy deadlines towards work and a Diwali preparations I couldn’t be able to visit my orphanage house to help a little unlike every year hence decided to contribute a little to get more by seeing these children grown up with vision towards their village so as to see ultimately an India a Brighter one. Thanks to all my friends like Kalyani , Subhodh who work so hard and devoted to these children to make their future bright via Insitewalk. Really
