In Hindi, the word for "wisdom" is Vidya. Our education project is based on values that encourage critical thinking, questioning mind, scientific temperament, creativity, imagination, and holistic development.
We work with Government schools of the area. We believe that if we want to see changes in quality of education then we need to start at the primary level and that too with an active engagement of all the relevant stakeholders like parents, teachers, children, and governments.
YFC is currently working with more than 2000 children in schools/communities. To this end, YFC’s work within education entails the following:
Providing benches, uniforms, shoes, multimedia apparatus, Teaching Assistants/Youth Mentors
Support schools in organising sports events
Support schools in developing and delivering sports curriculum
