The Community Connect initiative of Learning Space Foundation brings together various forces to create a true and definitive change in the lives of rural communities. In the past years, literate students and corporate employees have contributed in various ways to create a better tomorrow for the children and youth of Wada.
- An Australian pop-musician, Michael Turner and talented musician and singer from Nashik, Manish Dhiman came together and honored the community by composing an album known as ‘Light of Love’.
- Learning Space and Think Education have been bringing 100s of young Japanese Management students and company executives, to participate in Village Exposure & Developmental Programs run by LSF and to interact with the families living in the villages especially from the farming community.
- Institutes in Mumbai like Jamnabai Narsee School, Dhirubai Ambani International School and Xavier’s College have proved to be a great support to the program. High school students as well as visiting students from schools and Universities abroad have participated in volunteering service programs, offering creative lessons in Music, Dance, Drama and Storytelling as part of the direct experiential learning that works for the visiting and village students, in a spontaneous interactive manner. Individual students from among these groups have later opted to undertake short term internship projects with Learning Space to work in specific areas of their interest, in education, health & hygiene, and rural development.
- Companies like Deutsche Bank Ltd, Edelweiss Capital Ltd and Voltas Ltd have been drivers of Employee Volunteering Service with Learning Space to contribute to the change we see today among the children and youth of Wada.
Learning Space Foundation along with the broader community has been a change maker to some noteworthy accomplishments by these beneficiary children and youth.
Monika and Ganesh’s stories are examples that change cannot be driven alone and an empowered individual can empower others. If not with the help of the change makers of Learning Space, the beneficiaries may never have been exposed to such learning and growth opportunities.
If you would like to be a part of the journey of these children, and the development around the rural community, you can participate in the Community Connect initiative to volunteer or intern with us. (Read More)
