Support education of children in extremism affected areas

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.

This video link gives a glimpse of the work i-Saksham does.
 
 What is the current scale of i-Saksham and future plans?
 
As of today we i-Saksham has trained more than 500 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.
Students from Yale School of Management at one of the learning centres run by a youth in Jamui
 
i-Saksham aspires to build community of 50,000 tutors, cover 5 Million children and provide avenues of skill development to 500,000 youth on various vocational trades by 2025 along with building a sustainable and an expandable model.
 
How can you help?
 
We plan to raise INR 3 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 Friends,

Hope you and your near-dear ones are safe and healthy during these trying times.

Life has been off-track for millions of people across the world. 

During these unprecedented times of COVID-19, our edu-leaders, children and parents are are going beyond their comfort level to fulfill the motto of "सीखें-सिखाएं" (teach and learn). They are ensuring that the children's learning continues.  Celebrating their unique efforts, we are sharing  #beyondcomfortzone strories of faith, inspiration, and change by our edu-leaders.
1. Story 1 from Priya shares how they approached community and started teaching on phone. It gave us goosebumps when we read how her father acknowledged seeing a 'new avatar' of her while teaching children on phone.



2. Story 2 from Aanchal primarily shares how community is going beyond comfort zone to ensure children continue learning and how she is working with the children and building their confidence.



May i-Saksham edu-leaders are finding innovative ways to make learning engaging and fun for kids, on phone or otherwise. Lets wish them the best for their efforts.

Wish you good health.

We are now 100 fellows strong!!


Dear friend,
Over the last 6 months, i-Saksham has experienced precious moments... our first batch of edu-leaders graduated, a partnership with JEEViKA* established, and school transformation program strengthened.

a glimpse of the work in last few months:


70 new edu-leaders trained on innovative pedagogical practices and are being provided mentoring and coaching support.

Partnership with JEEVIKA, where cluster-lever federation of women SHGs would scale the model at grassroots and recruit edu-leaders.

100 edu-leaders are providing 10hrs/week of supplementary education in 25 underserved schools and 50 community learning centers.

These edu-leaders have conducted 60 Parent Teacher Meetings altogether to sensitize community on education and enhance their participation.
What we experienced in last 6 months?
Needless to say, this could not have been without your fantastic support.

Our next goal is to build a cadre of 1000 edu-leaders and work with 50,000 children by 2022. We need your support  to reach that goal and mentor our youth to amplify their impact and meet their professional aspirations.

Looking forward to your ongoing support to non-stop journey of learning and teaching.

Dear Friends,
Best wishes on the Republic Day.  i-Saksham would take this opportunity to share The Preamble to The Indian Constitution:
"WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens
JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity; and to promote among them all
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;
IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY this  26th day of November, 1949, do HEREBY ADOPT, ENACT AND GIVE TO OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION."



i-Saksham is doing its part to provide EQUALITY of Opportunity in some of the most backwards geographies of the country. We are grateful to all of you for your faith and support.

We have started new campaign for this year, Milaap is matching INR 100 thousand for every INR 500 thousand raised by i-Saksham . A number of you are contributing on this old campaign. We are stopping this campaign and would request you to support us on the new campaign.
