“Students like us do not have a future!!”

This rather chilling statement from a 13 year old Lakish is the genesis of United Efforts.

“I am good at Math, but I need to improve in English if I want to pass in 10th. But what use is it? When I pass my 10th exams, who is going to tell me which course to join, which college to join and how will I pay the fees?”

That was his explanation to why students like him did not have a future.

Our young students from economically weaker sections lack exposure. They are unable to understand the link between education and profession. Unlike students from privileged backgrounds whose parents are professionals, these children are limited to what they see around them and unclear on the educational pathways that can lead them to a career they can thrive in.

The dots between education and profession when connected, helps students visualize the jigsaw puzzle of their life falling in place.
