According to the UNESCO 2016 report, close to 47 million children in India drop out of school before they complete 10th standard education.
Unfortunately, these children are forced to take up other jobs to sustain their families. Ichchha Foundation believes that it is our responsibility to participate in ensuring that no child drops out of school to supplement household income.
The foundation encourages underprivileged students to continue their education by imparting entrepreneurial skills through after-school projects to generate funds, which contribute to their school & tuition fees, class supplies and school infrastructure.
They have collaborated with the likes of State Bank Of India, Snapdeal, Pepe Jeans and Kala Ghoda Association to bring about various opportunities for the children and take a step towards accomplishing their dreams.
In their Phase II, Ichchha Foundation has launched a crowdfunding campaign, which wishes to raise Rs. One Lakh to expand to new schools, conduct new programs and sponsor tuitions for the children.
Currently, they have raised up to 75% of their goal and are looking for your help to reach the goal and help many more children in the future. For every contribution, you are sure to receive a product ideated, developed and created by the budding entrepreneurs!
We all have dreams we want to achieve. We hope you’re on the path to achieving yours as well! As wonderfully put by Milton Berle, “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”
Take a step towards building a door for these amazing kids!
