Within Chitrakoot district the Project is in 10 villages of Manikpur Block.

UPMA run centers will take care of younger children through community neighborhood approach and that will allow older children to be able to go to school and get formal education.

Girl Child Education in India Fund
Reports show that 30% of girls from low-income families in India will never return after the closure of many schools in India, hindering all the progress made throughout the past decade. As a result, they're left vulnerable to abuse, have no access to education, and face period poverty. Asha's SV chapter is focusing on girl children through its projects invested in promoting hygiene and sanitation, promoting female rights, and providing vocational training. Some girl child-related projects we support include: Prayas Pratirodh Sansthan: this project provides education to tribal girls who have no access to education otherwise, while also acting as a bridge to enroll girls into formal schools. Door Step Schools: This project provides education to the children of slum dwellers, migrants/laborers, pavement dwellers, and other underprivileged families. As part of the curriculum, the school focuses and teaching girls about female health and hygiene which includes necessary information about the changes that occur during puberty. Fellowship Aheli Chowdhury: This project focuses on teaching girls of marginalized and minority communities employability skills such as reading and writing English, computer operations, and job readiness in order to help them secure a job and become financially independent. The project has also successfully helped place the girls they trained into excellent jobs.

Promoting E-learning for Rural Kids in Sembabule Uganda Fund
Curtin Child Learning Centre (CLICCS) is a community-based nursery & primary school located in Kibubu Nakasenyi Lwebitakuki Sembabule District that has been operating since January 2017. Like most kids in the rural areas of Uganda, the children enrolled at our school have low levels of literacy because of the inadequacy in reading materials during their early learning stages. We are aiming to resolve this using technological and digital tools in our teaching methods. We are appealing to well-wishers to support our school so we can purchase 100 E-reading tablets so the children can have access to both English and Luganda book stories (commonly-spoken native language in the Sembabule District) With the growing number of pupils , and the increasing demand to help them acquire higher literacy levels, we need to embrace digital learning; thus the need for tablets. We currently serve over 500 kids and we aim to have Tablet: Pupil ratio of 1:5(100 tablets to 500 kids.) This calls for a conducive and child-friendly E-learning environment where the children can access reading materials that match their skills and abilities, which will be further honed by our teachers. Through reading, we are hoping to improve and develop the children’s storytelling and conversational skills, their mastery of the English language, as well as build their confidence and promote teamwork among them. Help us make this happen. Together, let’s #RaiseACurtinChild.

FY21 Q4 Japan Community Impact session for Class for Everyone Fund
このファンドはCCNが6/28に実施するClass for everyone様をお招きして実施するウェビナー向けのものになります。 セッションを見て、活動に賛同される方はぜひ、ご協力をお願いいたします。 現在、コロナ渦のため、NPOもこれまでのようにボランティア活動ができず、支援を必要としている人へのサポートが難しい状況にあります。日本社会に貢献しているNPOに寄付で貢献してみませんか? これまで、ボランティア活動や寄付の経験がない方もこれを機にぜひ、ご協力いただければと思います。 一般的に他者へ貢献すると自分の幸福度も上がる傾向があるといわれています。 現在、私たちが住んでいる日本も含めて、世界中でボランティアや支援を必要としている人たちがいます。このような難しい局面である時こそ、私達のConscious Culture (自己理解、他者への理解、自分が他者(チーム、お客様、より大きなコミュニティー)にもたらす影響に常に目を向け理解し、意図的に行動することにより最高の体験を生み出す)を体現し、サポートを必要としている人たちを支援していきましょう。 This fund is for a webinar that CCN will be conducting on June 28th with Class for everyone. If you have seen the session and agree with the activities, please support us. Currently, due to the corona vortex, NPOs are not able to volunteer as much as they used to, making it difficult to provide support to those who need it. Why don't you make a donation to an NPO that is contributing to Japanese society? Even if you have never volunteered or donated before, we hope you will take this opportunity to do so. In general, it is said that contributing to others tends to increase one's own happiness. Currently, there are people all over the world, including in Japan where we live, who need volunteers and support. It is in these difficult times that we must embody our Conscious Culture (self-awareness, understanding of others, always looking at and understanding the impact we have on others (our team, our customers, the larger community), and acting intentionally to create the best possible experience) and help those who need support. Let's help those who need support.
