AKP provides children in Jaipur with equal opportunities and hope for the future

Overview

In our effort to support non-linear learning and transform local communities, AKP has partnered with Digantar School, in providing an alternative approach to quality education for the rural and underprivileged children in the outskirts of Jaipur. With AKP’s support, Digantar will fulfill their belief that every child is capable of:  being a responsible citizen of the society; defining and achieving his or her goals in life; taking and being responsible for one’s own actions.

Digantar aims at transforming a very conservative society to becoming an equitable one through its unique way of education. With the initial support of AKP, Digantar is widening its skill development and art program to expand the horizons of Digantar students. The skills development program empowers youth to become entrepreneurs by offering training in sewing, plumbing, carpentry and other useful trade skills.
