Who we are

Jidnyasa is a charitable trust based in Kolhapur, Maharashtra. Our vision is to build “a world where every child feels safe and empowered.” We focus on early childhood care and education (ECCE), educating adolescents and improving health, hygiene and sanitation facilities in Kagal, a town in Kolhapur.

We work with children aged 3-18 years from underserved communities, particularly from migrant and rural communities. We currently run two projects with 500 children and adolescents. Through our initiatives, we have provided healthcare and educational opportunities to children.

Our work and its impact

We are currently focusing on rural child development. The Zilla Parishad Schools are where children spend most of their time but the schools are not well equipped to cater to all their educational needs.

This year, a student in one of the Zilla Parishad schools we work with received a government scholarship. This helped Jidnyasa gain a good name as well as support from the community to continue our work.

How we will utilise these books

Picture books are important sources of new concepts and lessons and are a fun way to pick up new vocabulary.

The books from this campaign will be used to set up classroom libraries in the Zilla Parishad schools as well as a learning centre for children from migrant families. Many of these children belong to underprivileged migrant families who work in the sugarcane industry.

Developing a reading habit will help the kids build their cognitive and communication skills. Easy access to high-quality storybooks from Pratham Books will be instrumental in our efforts to improve the standard of primary education in Kagal.
