Two of the fellows, Priya and Krishna, working under the project of Centre for Catalyzing Change (C3), together conducted a meeting of young people aged between 15 and 20 years. C3 is funding ALFA to foster quality education in Kherwara block of Udaipur district through connecting children who are deprived of education with the schools, enrolling back the dropped out students to the formal institutions, strengthening quality education in the existing schools and promoting creative learning outside the school campus.
The fellows explained the youth the importance of having some aspirations in life and then the continuous efforts to achieve those dreams. They discussed with the youth how education and schools play a huge role in achieving what you desire and to become independent. They cited many examples from their own surroundings to explain the benefits of proper education. They especially urged females and motivated them by giving a live example of Krishna who received a scholarship for higher studies along with a laptop and scooty as she qualified the state board examination with distinction. This motivated the youth who expressed their interests to pursue education by sharing the problems they face. The meeting culminated by conducting a fun activity with the youth which everyone enjoyed and promised to come in other gatherings too where the discussion will be more two-way.
