Study Khazana is giving vocational language training to rural girls for a nominal fee
Study Khazana has already reached a large number of people through their YouTube channel, which has over a lakh subscribers
Supporting the girl child has been a cause that most organisations take up nowadays. With the aim of education for all, Study Khazana, an online education portal, has started a campaign, Beti Hai Khushiyon ka Khazana that will help girls from rural backgrounds build a future, independently. As part of the campaign, these young girls will be provided with vocational language training for a nominal fee. The project utilises a three-pronged approach to engage marginalised girls, teachers, and community members to come together in support of educating the girl child.
Speaking about the campaign, Sana Baqai, Founder, Study Khazana, says, "Apart from Hindi and English, there are many other subjects in which students need proper guidance, so, Study Khazana is planning to cover a maximum number of subjects like Science, Mathematics, and Computer. Our focus is primarily on practical subjects in which students face maximum difficulties."
Study Khazana has already reached a large number of people through their YouTube channel, which has around 1,00,000 subscribers. The campaign has also received a great response from the students and their families. Keeping in mind that quality education is ensured, Study Khazana hires the best private tutors from metropolitan cities to teach students in rural areas.
Study Khazana was awarded the International Excellence Award 2018 and Best Education Portal in North India and South India. The award was given by Bollywood actor Madhuri Dixit Nene
"Beti Hai Khushiyon ka Khazana is a campaign started to make girls from a rural background financially independent by making them aware of the different career options they can choose from. Through this campaign, we plan to conduct career counselling and awareness programmes, and most importantly, we have designed a few technical courses that can help them earn a livelihood for themselves. Also, most of these courses will be provided free of cost or a nominal fee will be charged, so that it doesn't become a burden on their families," says Sana.
And how will technology act as an enabler? "Taking into consideration the current role of technology in the modern world, the campaign is very much dependent on technology because of the fact that all the courses will be provided on our online portal, www.studykhazana.com. Aside from this, other factors related to technology have also been taken into consideration in order to make them aware of the kind of technology that is lacking in rural areas," she concludes.
