Building an experiential learning platform for the youth in Shillong!

THE STUDENT CRISIS IN SHILLONG

Education is often the most central and important aspect of an individual’s life. An excellent education equips the youth with knowledge, skills, values and mindsets needed to be enabled students and empowered individuals. This form of education transcends beyond the classrooms where students can grasp opportunities at tangible platforms and organisations. Unfortunately, unlike in other cities, there are hardly any platforms in Shillong that promote and encourage capacity building among students. This leads to a situation where students are unable to discover their strengths and interests. It consequently creates low aspirations among them and deters their career goals.

Students need to be encouraged to think freely and harness their own individuality. There is a dire need for grassroots intervention to be able to align students’ aptitudes with their ambitions. A tangible platform needs to be established to harness students’ capabilities and promote student leadership.
 
The Student Foster Foundation exists precisely to become this platform of building capacities and creating change.

BUILDING A YOUTH-LED MOVEMENT

The Student Foster Foundation seeks to become a catalyst in bringing a new culture to the student community in Shillong.

While our current and upcoming initiatives are focused on having community impact, we believe in driving a change by having college students initiate and implement these initiatives. They will be involved with operations, strategy, marketing, research, and more.

Experience is the best teacher and we want to provide opportunities to college students to attain the experiences that can help them grow, both professionally and personally.

We strive to not merely build an organisation but to create a movement that is driven by the youth, where young individuals can come in, learn, develop skills, make an impact, and leave with a commitment to drive for change.

By doing this, we are able to help build capacities for every person that is associated with The Student Foster Foundation. Thus, imbibing the mission that we set out for - capacity building and leadership development.

The strength of The Student Foster Foundation lies in the diversity of our Core Team. Their experiences and educational qualifications, as well as their passion and dedication helps nourish and accelerate the youth-led movement that The Student Foster Foundation is striving to build.

FUNDING

With all of our hopes and efforts of bringing change to the student community we grew up in, our on-going obstacle are funds. We humbly request you to help us in bringing this change by contributing in whichever way you feel led. All the financial contribution will go towards the operational expenses of The Student Foster Foundation’s programs. This includes the cost of research & development, communications, printing, and other such expenses, necessary to support the organisation. If not financially, you can contribute with your good wishes and by spreading the word. The higher the funds we can raise, the sooner we can reach our goals. Thank you for helping us in bringing a new culture to our student community in Shillong.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for the support. It took a little more time than expected but our partnered printing press has finally arranged all the loose pages collected and has numbered them properly. The organised loose pages will now be reprinted and rebound into fresh notebooks with our brand, "Jotter Project".

We have fortunately raised enough money to meet the expenses for the notebooks. We sincerely thank you for supporting us and contributing in the way that you did. Without your help, this mission would not have been possible. Thank you for believing in the mission and in us.

It's a matter of days now before we proceed for our first distribution. More updates will be followed soon. :) #JotterProject  

Below is a photo of the organised loose sheets that will be remade into Jotter Project Notebooks.

Hello guys, I came across your project in today's Shillong Times and I must commend you on this immensely well thought of initiative, which makes me doubly proud due to the involvement of SES alumni in it! You'd perhaps be interested to know that the World Economic Forum has an initiative called Global Shapers (https://www.globalshapers.org/impact/themes/education), which has inclusive education as one of its primary themes. Global Shapers involves creation of city based Hubs where youth people
