StudyFin- Financial support to reduce school dropouts in Maharashtra

At Thinksharp Foundation, we are successfully running project StudyMall in 28 villages in 28 rural schools across Maharashtra,India . Through StudyMall we are helping approximately 5000 rural children by providing them books,digital learning and other better educational infrastructure.

While working in rural areas, we closely observed lack of financial resource is one of the critical reason for discontinuing education. One of the major cause of dropouts in secondary schools in rural areas, is lack of financial support. This led us to launch our  new project “StudyFin”.

StudyFin project supports to financially disadvantaged children to pursue secondary education (9th to 12th Std) and vocational education. Special emphasis is for the girls who cannot pursue or have dropped out of the school due to financial constraints. This will help rural children for completion of the basic and vocational education.  This will increase there chance of earning money and becoming self-sustainable by being able to earn livelihood. StudyFin offers financial assistance in terms of fees up-to Rs.15,000/- per year, until course completion.

Our eligibility criteria is parental income from all sources should be less than Rs.2,50,000/- for the year. Special preference to children who have shown strong desire to learn. Eligible Courses 9th to 12th Std school education, ITI, Polytechnic and other short term vocational courses.

Our expectation from  children who will become part of our StudyFin program is that, they should provide commitment to share regular performance report as per our terms and conditions. And they should have desire to give back to society meaning children who are beneficiaries of our project, after their desired progression in career, they should donate for our project to further help other financially disadvantaged children in similar manner.

You can also become our partner organisation, supporter, volunteer and you can choose to donate for our cause.

Reading Day celebrated in StudyMall projects

On 15 Oct 2018, on the occasion of birth anniversary of Dr.A .P.J Abdul Kalam (Former President of India) we celebrated “maharashtra reading day”  “वाचन प्रेरणा दिवस” across all our 28 partner schools in Maharashtra.

Thinksharp Foundation has established Libraries and Digital classrooms in rural schools of Maharashtra. We are now helping around 5000 rural children in 26 villages of Maharashtra through 28 Studymall projects running in rural schools.

 

Rural children are not always provided with extra curricular books. Having books and libraries is still just a dream for many children, we want to fulfill this dream. Every StudyMall is equipped with library that consists of story books, autobiographical books about leaders, self help books for syllabus subjects such as maths and English and many more other books.

We also follow up about reading habits inculcated in children due to StudyMall project, by asking them to fill up “Book review Form” which focuses on asking them to answer “what did they learn from book they finished reading”.

We select books to be kept in StudyMall after having assessed the age group, interest of children of that particular school. We then discuss this list of books with educationists and experts to ensure we are selecting the right books.

We thank  all our partners for providing this books,special thanks to Pratham Books and Jyotsna Publication. We  also extend our thanks to our individual supporters and donors without who this dream of reading books will be incomplete.

You can also become our partner organisation, supporter, volunteer and you can choose to donate for our cause. Check for more details on our website
