The "Zeal"

Children are the future of a nation. For an emerging and developing country like India, development of underprivileged children holds the key to the progress of the nation itself.

Education for underprivileged Children is the key whether we are addressing healthcare, poverty, population control, unemployment or human rights issues.

The educational initiatives for underprivileged children include Crèche [0-3 yrs], Pre-school [3-6 yrs], Non Formal Education [6-14 yrs non-school going], Remedial Education [6-14 yrs school going], Bridge Course [14-18 yrs drop-outs], Functional Literacy [18-45 yrs women] and Family Life Education for adolescent girls. These projects support more than 100 grassroots initiatives working for the education of very poor and underprivileged children in various states of country like Bihar, Orissa, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, West Bengal, Assam, Manipur, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, Chandigarh, Maharashtra, Goa, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh etc.

  1. Dear Spandan,

    I am impressed by your photography and thoughts you have expressed about the importance on education among underpriviliged in India. I represent naduvan, ngo based in Chennai that functions to 'fight one cause to support an other cause'. Our fighting cause include responsible use of plastics. Today many organizations suggest 'no to plastics', but this is not a feasible solution or a practical approach. naduvan finds the key to reducing plastic hazards lies in our responsibility to use them with some responsibility. We have produced a literature based on our research to suggest some basic steps to public to contribute to effective plastic waste management in the country.

    In this campaign we are selling stickers that promotes the message 'reduce, reuse and recycle plastics' as an awareness measure. The sticker costs Rs.10/- and the total funds raised will be used for funding educaton for underpriviliged children in rural villages and urban slums in India.

    By doing this, we not only promote the importance of environmental responsibility among people, but also nurture a sense of social responsibility. I will be interested to share more details with you if you are interested in our campaign.

    Also, your photography is very insightful and we would be glad to use it in our campaign. Your thoughts will be of great support for us to achieve our causes.

    Look forward to your reply.

    With kind regards,
