Help Children in Difficult Areas in Getting Quality Education

What is i-Saksham?

i-Saksham is working in remote and conflict-ridden areas of the country (Bihar as of now), where local youths are selected and trained in use of digital technology, text books, pedagogy and other relevant tools and techniques to deliver quality education, using low-cost android tablets. These trained youths, significant of whom are girls, in turn run tuition centers where they teach community children at a nominal fee, under the mentoring of i-Saksham team, thus providing them with in-village earning opportunity.

What is the current scale of i-Saksham and future plans?

As of today we i-Saksham has trained more than 1,000 youth.  i-Saksham has started an i-Saksham Fellowship wherein we are working with high potential trained youth for a longer term period. Some of them are running their own learning centres while some of them are teaching in Government schools.i-Saksham aspires to build community of 10,000 community educators and cover 1 Million children  by 2025 along with building a sustainable and an expandable model.

How can you help?

We plan to raise INR 3.5 Million to be arranged through family, friends and their network. This money will be used towards establishing learning centres, buying android tablets  (INR 10,000 for tablets and accessories) and towards logistics costs for training and mentoring the learning centre.

We seek your financial assistance (through you and your friends). Whatever you contribute will go on to make a big difference along it being available for 80G tax benefit under the Income Tax Act.

Dear all,
We updated about our fellows and team members making it to Azim Premji University and Tata Institute of Social Sciences.
Further, two of our batch 1 fellows have made it to Institute of Education Training, which will help them getting formal teaching roles.
This further strengthens one of i-Saksham's objectives of creating teachers for the future.
This could not have been worked out without your continuous support. Many thanks for that

Dear all,
We launched 3rd batch of fellowship in June first week.
It started with a week-long residential programme.
It was difficult to convince students and parents (specially of female fellows) to be there for a week.

However, they found it quite worth. We look forward to a strongly bonded and highly motivated bunch of youngsters.

Here are some glimpses.
