Why should you apply for the Sampark Young Leader Program 2020?

Education is the key to social and economic growth, it lays the foundation for a developed country. It equips children with the knowledge, skills, values, and mindsets needed to be empowered individuals and responsible citizens. Sampark Foundation’s belief is that we can bring about a revolution in education by encouraging, empowering, and enthusing teachers.
Sampark is working to improve the learning outcomes for millions of children studying in government primary school. In India, around 6 in 10 students in grade 5 can’t read grade-2 text, 8 out of 10 cannot do simple math. 6 million children in the age group 6-14 are estimated to be out of school and 36% of the children drop out even before completing primary education.
If not tackled in time, India’s learning crisis can turn our demographic dividend into our biggest challenge. But we can turn things around by providing equal opportunities to children by improving the quality education in schools.
Though there are numerous challenges facing the education system in India, the root of this crisis in education lies a crisis of leadership. There is a severe dearth of motivated teachers in the country. SYL will equip teachers with knowledge, tools and technology and motivate these teachers to lead the change in their classrooms.
