Children's Education Fund

Making A True Change

Over the years DRRT was confronted with requests from children in the slums and villages aspiring to pursue higher studies. These children included young blossoming minds nurturing dreams of becoming leaders and transforming the oppression faced

by their families and their communities.

DRRT evolved a unique self managed education fund that belongs to the children themselves. DRIK Children’s Education Fund was launched to develop a sustainable educational empowerment model for the urban poor and rural communities.

DRIK CEF is based on self-empowerment and ownership  which is managed by the

children, supported by the parents and is a community approved fund.

Main Objective And Methodology

The management pattern being instituted into this fund is unique and pioneering because it is emerging out of a democratic process of discussion and decision making involving over hundreds of children and their parents. 

Strategizing to incorporate the main objectives, DRRT and AVAS teams have been periodically meeting with all the children and their parents.

Successes Thus far

The success of this model has been emulated and is gaining recognition as a sustainable  model that is solely managed by the children.

  • Over hundreds of children have found a new opportunity to continue their studies.

  • The number of dropouts at 7th std level has reduced dramatically since its launch.

  • Poor families have financial support to help their children with educational continuity without external borrowing and oppressive debt recovery.

  • It has enhanced skill development and increased employment opportunities.  

The most purposeful outcome is the development of leadership, self confidence and trust in themselves to sustain the empowerment of education and learning within their communities.

While there are many challenges in the effective implementation of DRIK-CEF, the efforts till date of bringing children and communities together on this common vision and enabling decision making process have been enriching.

 

The emergence of this pioneering model has shown the way for a sustainable and empowering outcome with hundreds of children having a promise for a better future
