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

Dear Supporters,

An update from our fellow:

Our fellow Kajal has enrolled herself for Bachelor’s in Arts. It took her one year to convince her family and she’s happy to continue her education. She says this will encourage many more young women of her village to find means to connect with education.

Currently children are making recycled and eco friendly Rakhis and eco friendly Ganpati. Check all the updates related to students and fellows on our Instagram account here: https://instagram.com/insightwalk

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.
