Success Academy started in slum area during pandemic

With the COVID pandemic affecting most of the world, this year has been eventful.

One of the Most affected areas was children’s’ education. Let’s make a wish that no child is left behind because of this pandemic. At Be Educated we took a small step towards this goal and started a program called “Success Academy for Rising Stars” in seven slum areas across India.

This 25-week program is designed for children age 6-10 years living in slum areas. Our plan is to engage those children with pandemic-safe educational activities. We are enrolling 40-45 children at each location and will provide each child a bag filled with workbooks, coloring supplies, educational materials and games, uniforms, and two face masks (during pandemics).

This project is designed not only to help children but to provide job opportunities for needy youth and help local businesses. For each location, we have budgeted $2,000 that covers the teachers’ payment, supplies, food, and uniform cost.
