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?
Over the next three years our focus is on teaching diverse skills to our children based on the pattern we have observed in the last one year while working with them and their community members.

This will include teaching science and frugal innovation, python programming using raspberry Pi, literature, journalism, stitching, sketching, innovation in agriculture, crafts, painting.

At Community Center our major focus is to:
  • Develop key skills within children based on their interests
  • Create opportunities for the children of the age group 6 to 14 and ensure these kids are mentored by
    the finest rural artists
  • Set the foundation really solid: focusing on creating a strong value system with the focus on personal discipline, understanding the value of resources and also bridging the literacy gap.

I am happy to share that we recently introduced organic farming at our Community Centre. A portion of funds will be utilized for scaling organic farming full time in three villages that we are working with. Simultaneously children also learnt about key skills like Empathy and Problem Solving in the process.

Attached a few pictures below.

Thank you once again for all your support throughout the year. With these funds, we plan to setup more Innovation and Passion labs in the new villages we have started working with. Next week we are rolling out fellowships in 5 villages and these funds will help us in supporting the Science and Innovation Program.

Meanwhile, sharing a few pictures from Christmas project.

This Christmas, our kids decided to become Santa Claus for their parents. The first problem in this was finding socks without spending any money. The kids then began stitching hand-socks in their stitching sessions with our fellows.
The next big challenge was finding the gifts which convey gratitude and help kids empathize with their parents and community. The kids then decided to design poetry diaries for their parents. They began reading a lot of poems by several rural authors from different districts of Maharashtra and hand-picked ten poems they liked.
Now the kids started writing these poems, drew illustrations to make the poems visually appealing and finally designed small diaries. Today, the kids kept these handmade socks in their homes as a surprise for the parents.
A lot of parents said that this is the first time their kids had thought of this and they loved the poems.

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
