Education Samvedana runs educational initiatives to add value to the schooling of children from municipal schools as well as youth from the slums of Vadaj, Ahmedabad. YVO channelized the donation received for the month of May 2015 towards equipping these centers with an AV room comprising of a laptop, projector, projector screen, amplifier and speakers. Vocational Education Udgreev an initiative by Samvedana, provides a platform to the beneficiaries for showcasing their vocational skills and organizes various workshops to promote social entrepreneurship amongst the youth. To help them excel, YVO has provided a sewing machine and two single burners that will be used for the purpose of dyeing and candle making. Small Act, Big Impact This educational setup bought with your Rs.300 will help shape the lives of 425 children and 50 youth currently being mentored and several others who will be associated with these centers in the future. The vocational training setup will benefit not only these students but also Anganwadi workers from various villages like Ghatlodiya, Chandlodia, and Vadaj. Samvedana's vision is to handhold these children by providing supporting educational facilities, the relevant exposures to envisage a dream and mentoring to achieve the same.
