My last 7year’sjourney in development sector starts with, working for people of low income and extreme poverty by taking support of some experienced like-minded people, to understand the development sector and the real challenges. While working for the community, I realized holistic development of children as a result of quality learning with values is most important aspect given the fact “Millions of young students in low income section face the prospect of lost opportunity in later life because their primary schools are failing to educate them to succeed in life. Not only a learning crisis, also a great injustice to young students. This learning crisis is widening social gaps instead of narrowing them. Young students who are already disadvantaged by poverty, conflict, gender or disability reach young adulthood without even the most basic life skills”stated in World Bank Development Report 2017.
My passion towards development sector, international exposure, incredible support & guidance of advisory board, Sh. Raj Shekhar, Former DM Lucknow, other top officials and not the least a good committed team has helped me to achieve the same.We are trying to contribute to the cause, without financial support from the State and Central Government.Support from state/district functionaries and all sections of the society viz. corporate sector, civil society organizations, media, college faculties, school teachers, local community, youth will continue to strengthen our mission in coming years.
