We at Charitnation currently working in two areas, Literacy and Education of Children and Career Guidance, Counseling and Skilling of Youth in India
Literacy and Education
Even though India’s literacy rate has been growing, there are a number of issues Indian education system is facing, and one is rural-urban gap. According to ASER, about 50% students in 5th standard attending rural schools are not capable of reading a text meant for junior classes.
Exceptions apart, government schools across the country lay in an abysmal state. While the state education department and district education officials are busy in converting government schools across the state into smart ones by providing necessary facilities, there are many schools across India, where students are still waiting for basic amenities such as safe classrooms to sit in, school furniture, uniforms and books etc.
Charitnation under it's literacy and education education initiative working towards following:
Motivating parents to send their children to school from marginalized background.
Distributing School Bags, Supplies, Uniforms, Shoes to disadvantage children.
Building Libraries in Government Primary School
Improving Government Primary School Infrastructure.
Improving strength of government primary school children.
India’s inequality crisis hurts girls and women the most
Supporting Girl Child Education
As of now, more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world are not in school. This is a crisis and we at Charitnation, know the single best approach to improving the status of women is through education. Yet, girls are disadvantaged when it comes to getting an education. Cultural bias, gender discrimination and safety concerns discourage girls from learning, and these pressures become even more pronounced when girls reach secondary school. Charitnation is working towards supporting girl child for their education.
Preparing, placing and supporting people into life-changing careers.
Career Guidance, Counseling, training
and Skilling of Youth
By 2030, more than half of 12th-passed Indians will lack the skills to get jobs, a report by Unicef. India will have the highest number of secondary school graduates among South Asian nations — at over 30 crore — by 2030 but nearly half of them will lack skills to enter the workforce, a new UNICEF report on skill development has predicted.
Only 47 per cent of Indian school graduates by 2030 will have the basic skills to be employable, said the UNICEF report titled GBC-Education 2030 Skills Scorecard and released recently. However, the number will be an improvement from the present 19 per cent.
We at Charitnation transform education to employment systems to prepare, place, and support people into life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible. We have a methodology that we believe can serve hundreds of thousands—and eventually millions—of people who are unemployed, underemployed, or need to learn new skills. Our program creates real business value for employers and lasting career impact for participants.
