This support in this crisis has provided holistic development and support to these children to mitigating the severity of the COVID 19 impact.

Children’s club empowers young children as change agents

Children’s club providesΒ children with an opportunity to voice their thoughts so that their concerns and rights are addressed. These young ministers of change undertake responsibilities in the areas of health, education, sports, culture and nutrition.

Awareness sessions and activities like rallies, drawing, essays, cultural celebrations are held where these children learn to express themselves and take up leadership activities that boost their participation, confidence, awareness.

So far, PRIDE India has impacted and empowered 5153 children through the children’s club making them the young advocates for change.

Activity Based Learnings!

With the support of Avanse Financial Services Limited, we are working on the Model School concept with six Zilla Parishad schools in Mahad benefitting 332 children. The Activity Based Learning materials were provided to these six schools to ensure creative learning of the children through worksheets and activities, helping them understand the concepts, and thus making education more interesting for them.

Thank you Avanse Financial Services for your support.

Technology connecting children with Education!

Amid this pandemic, due to the closure of schools, children from marginalized communities are unable to attend online classes as they are not able to afford smartphones. With support from AkzoNobel, we have promoted online learning by providing #Tabs with BYJU’S app and the installation of study curriculum to the 9th and 10th std children from the Navi Mumbai Municipal schools to increase academic engagement to enable self-learning and staying digitally connected to their online classes. This will assist them to transform their academic challenges into possibilities.

Sustainable Livelihoods

2021 has been a year where we have scaled up our livelihood development initiatives in new locations at Lanja and Sangmeshwar blocks of Ratnagiri district to improve the quality of life of the farmers.

Through this support, 2110 farmers have been supported for the cultivation of turmeric, finger millet (ragi) and red rice and raising kitchen gardens in their land for additional income that will help reduce the distress in farmers and helping them move towards income security and a healthy living!
