13th September 2023, Mumbai: Saakshar Educational Trust (SET), a national nonprofit registered under the Trust Act, Government of India, is dedicated to empowering and uplifting the children and youth of India through free education. In addition to its efforts to bridge education and opportunity gaps, SET actively promotes women empowerment and provides foundational courses for individuals from minority and underprivileged backgrounds.
Education is the key to unlocking opportunities and creating a brighter future for individuals and societies. However, access to quality education remains a challenge for many children, especially those from marginalized communities. SET recognizes this disparity and strives to bring equity in education from preschool to college and higher education.
One of the primary objectives of SET is to increase access to education through various programs designed specifically for historically underserved students. By conducting extensive research, providing educational resources, and advocating for policy changes, SET aims to address the barriers that hinder the educational progress of disadvantaged children and youth.
Recognizing the importance of women empowerment, Saakshar Educational Trust (SET) conducts free workshops and skill training programs specifically designed for women. These initiatives aim to equip women with the necessary knowledge and skills to become self-employed and gain financial independence. By providing opportunities for women to develop their talents and abilities, SET is actively contributing to their empowerment and fostering gender equality.
Furthermore, SET is committed to promoting educational inclusivity across all age groups. The organization offers foundational courses that cater to individuals from minority and underprivileged classes across India. These courses provide essential knowledge and skills to enhance their educational foundation and expand their opportunities for personal and professional growth. SET believes that education is a lifelong journey, and by offering these courses, it strives to ensure that individuals from marginalized communities have access to quality education at any stage of life.
SET firmly believes in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) and actively aligns its efforts with these global goals. The organization works towards achieving multiple United Nation Sustainable Development Goals, including Goal 4: Quality Education, Goal 5: Gender Equality, Goal 10: Reducing Inequalities and Goal 17: Partnership for the Goals. Through its programs and initiatives, SET promotes inclusive and quality education, ensuring that no child is left behind.
The impact of SET’s work extends beyond educational access. The trust also focuses on fostering community collaboration and engagement. By bringing diverse communities together, SET aims to cultivate a sense of shared responsibility in working towards education equity. The organization actively advocates for the Right to Education and Quality Education for all, seeking to increase political, social, and public support.
“We firmly believe that education is the cornerstone of a prosperous and inclusive society. Through our initiatives, we aim to provide equal opportunities for all children and youth, regardless of their background or circumstances. Our mission at Saakshar Educational Trust is not only to bridge educational gaps but also to create opportunities for women empowerment and provide educational support to individuals from marginalized backgrounds. Through our free workshops, skill training programs, and foundational courses, we aim to empower individuals and communities, fostering a more inclusive and equitable society” said a Volunteer at SET.
