" I always believed in the joy of giving back. I study in one of the best institutes in my country and have been very privileged to be empowered with education. India is a developing country, struggling with the problem of inadequate education to children in the country. One of the reasons contributing to this is the lack of basic infrastructure and the inability to afford notebooks, textbooks and other stationary needed for schooling. We as a team are looking forward to make the change for a better and brighter tomorrow. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: LEAP
We as a team are working on the project to include 21st century skills in the school curriculum of government skills. Skills like leadership, soft skills are equally important to kids in life which our curriculum doesn't really incorporate. Through peer teaching it helps kids to make learning a lot better with these skills.
