Objective – To provide financial support towards the education of children beyond Grade 5

Through Maanas Shiksha Scholarship, we ensure unstinted support to the young students who study up till grade 5 at the Maanas Shiksha Center. Once the students finish their grade 5, we assist all families in enrolling the children into affordable private or Government schools.

What We Provide

  • Our “Maanas Shishka Centre” students with admission into Government and recognised Private schools for further education.
  • Financial and emotional support to our students to ensure a seamless transition into the new educational environment.
  • We continue to tutor them, so that they can academically thrive in their new environments.
  • Continued training in co-circular skills for our ex-students, so they can master their skill and give them a platform to perform at our School functions.
  • Invite our ex-students to volunteer as teachers/mentors to the newer batches at our Maanas Shiksha Centre. In 2020, we have enrolled our first batch in NIOS, National Institute of Open Schooling, for secondary class.

We believe
“ Empowerment of an individual is not a single defined action but a series of smaller coordinated steps.”

Vocational Training

Our Ultimate aim is to ensure each life we coach evolves into a financially independent, mentally strong individuals. To facilitate this we work with PRAVAH Skill Development Centre, where the individuals are provided vocational training as per their field of choice. Many youngsters have benefited from this programme and are today bread winners and change agents themselves.
