Our Projects » Enable
Project Enable seeks to challenge students to develop a sustainable model for making their schools more accessible and equal opportunity driven. It is a result of our firm belief that education must be inclusive and that diversity enables a richer and more holistic learning experience.
Through a collection of workshops, mentorship sessions and community visits on issues of social justice, entrepreneurship and project management, we aim to understand the challenges to enabling access to education and also work towards finding a solution.
January 2013 saw the successful completion of Project Enable in New Delhi through a 2-day Right to Education Summit at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, which comprised a panel discussion by eminent personalities in the field of education such as Dr. Shayama Chona and Mr. Vinod Raina among others; a play depicting the challenge of inclusive education put together by the school children and a final presentation of the models created by the different teams. The models prepared by the two teams of Mother’s International School were deemed most viable by the jury, making these teams the first ever winners in Project Enable. A few months later, the students conducted their very first workshop in their school, taking a significant step forward in the direction of making education more inclusive!
May 2013 also saw Project Enable reach Bangalore. With a fantastic team of mentors comprising a Fulbright scholar, fellows with Teach for India and students, this team put together a more technical and hands-on rendition of the project in their city. The project concluded with a Summit which saw the 4 participating teams take on issues of awareness and inclusivity in novel ways. A team from Vidya Niketan School, which put forth 25 innovative ways to tackle the problem was declared champion. The implementation of their measures is in the works and eagerly awaited.
