PROBLEM STATEMENT – While the school enrollment rate is at an all-time high in India, unequal access to quality education prevents many disadvantaged children (living in urban cities) from developing foundational academic skills and positive learning attitudes required to succeed in higher grades and later in life.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION - Youngistaan Foundation’s out-of-school time program, Bright Spark Education uses the whole child approach and a model of social pedagogy to build foundational academic and social-emotional skills of 100 underserved learners (living in local bastis and shelter homes in Hyderabad) through a direct intervention comprising of weekly holistic education sessions, and will indirectly impact 200 children through a long-term teacher education program at a government primary school in Nizamabad.

REQUEST SUMMARY: We are targeting to raise 1 lakh ten thousand rupees towards Youngistaan Education Program targeting 100 underserved students. This contribution goes towards purchasing relevant teaching and learning materials and tools, for the children's library.

Raising Funds for:

PROBLEM STATEMENT – Due to uncaring learning environments and poor quality teaching, these children continue to struggle as below-grade learners with low motivation levels and low self-worth, which further exacerbates the learning gap, and adversely affects, both, their future employment opportunities as well as their social-emotional wellbeing.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION - The full year’s toil and work culminate in the shape of a grand Annual Carnival organized by the Youngistaan Foundation for all the children who are a part of its education program as well as young girls who have benefited from menstrual hygiene awareness campaigns conducted by the NGO’s Women of Courage team. The carnival held in the first week of every December functions as a major goal that our children work towards and it keeps their motivation levels going even when they flounder or wish to give up. It is the only opportunity our children get where they can showcase their talent and perform in front of a large audience. Children are felicitated for various positive behaviors that they have shown throughout the year, namely, a strong work ethic, determination, empathy, social responsibility, and creativity amongst other things.

REQUEST SUMMARY: We are targeting to raise another 1 lakh ten thousand rupees towards our Annual Carnival targeting 300 underserved children. This contribution goes towards organizing the Carnival that includes venue, food, prizes, bouncy castles, decoration, logistics, and transport.

SUCCESS FACTORS: Our success indicators include measuring the learning levels of the children’s foundational literacy and arithmetic skills. Also, through consistent observation and interaction with the child and parents, we track the development of their social-emotional competencies.
