One of the study says 85% of graduates are unemployable in India. To break through this, apart from giving the scholarship to students we also help them to become employable through our ‘First Penguin Club’ initiative.

 We gave skill-based training for 10 weekends with the help of volunteers from corporates. For the final session, we took them to corporate to assess their skills. We rewarded with certificates and medals after the assessment.

Our Scholars

Watch the 1 min video below to know how we make our scholars employable.

We did much more in October-2017. Here is the gist of the important activities that we did in October-2017.

Diwali For All 

Not everyone celebrates Diwali. We decided to change that by gifting a new dress for Diwali through our ‘Diwali for All’ initiative.

This year, we gave dresses to 702 kids and adults.

The beneficiary includes parentless kids, single-parented kids, financially poor kids, kids with cancer, homeless people, widows, visually challenged and Mentally Challenged people.

Sports for Students

Learning is more than paper, pencil, and books. As we know, it’s not just books that teaches everything in our life. 
 
With the aim to engage our students in various activities, we gave them sports materials such as chess, carrom, shuttle and much more. Volunteers will be training them in such activities during weekends.
