Project Abrazos – Road to a Sustainable Future!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Our Blog

It has been more than 4 months since our crowdfunding campaign ended. When we started our crowdfunding campaign, we did not expect that we would receive any response from the audience but imagine our surprise when we received our donations. We were overwhelmed, and honestly, this was a morale booster, not only for us but for the school as well. Over the past 4 months, there have been several infrastructural reforms in the school. Toilets have been constructed, along with improving the current library through our partnership with Goonj. The children have also been participating in several events! During one […]

Reforming the Reforms, Crowdfunding Campaign Update.

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Our Blog

It was in December of 2017 when we adopted a community school belonging to one of the most impoverished localities of Lucknow. The school belongs to a community where child labour runs rampant and jobs like manual scavenging are forced upon the children at a very young age. The school provides education to over 300 underprivileged children belonging to the same community and has been doing so for over a decade but despite the noble cause, the school fails to deliver the basic necessities required for a change. In the month of March, we started a crowdfunding campaign which ran […]

Bal Vikas Montessori School KIDS DESERVE TO BE HAPPY, SAFE AND HEALTHY! Child labour is not just an affront to the rights of a child but also a symbol of a society that has lost its way. We should, therefore, all strive to ensure that the fundamental rights of children are protected and that they are accorded the opportunity to go after their dreams and aspirations. The future is much brighter when the younger generation has a good foundation for success. The innocence of a child should never be taken away for the purpose of making the lives of adults […]

Education is the passport to the future : Project Abrazos

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Our Blog

“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” -Malcolm X An apt statement synonymous with the definition of education, ultimately defining the purpose of education and imparting a meaning. A few weeks ago, we visited a city, 600 kilometres from our office, a school we adopted under Project Abrazos. The objective of our first visit was to build a school library, for the use of both students and the community. The intended-to-be-small visit became a field trip. The enthusiastic children were jovial and a delight to interact with. The teachers and […]

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Our Blog

  Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs “What do you want to be when you grow up?” All of us have been asked this at some point in our lives, perhaps by a parent, an auntie, a teacher. And as kids, we likely responded enthusiastically, “Wonder Woman!” “A prince!” “A mermaid!” A doctor, an engineer, a lawyer, a journalist, a business owner. Even in childhood, we all had dreams of what we could become, but how many of us actually feel like we’re working towards those dreams now? Do we feel like we’re moving forward or moving in circles? Are we happy? […]

What Maslow Initiative aims to ?

  He was seven when he decided to be a musician. He was moved by Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and inspired by Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Though uneducated in music, he was still a musical genius, composing melodies of his own. Music freed him from the chains that bound him, the wings on his back fluttered as his fingers raced along the piano keys. He was happy, and music made him ecstatic. Even though he knew his freedom was temporary, he cherished each and every note he played.He came from a line of doctors. His parents were doctors, and so were his […]
