About the Organization:
Sakal has been leading various social initiatives for decades, addressing needs across the country. We see the media's role today as that of a facilitator of social change, not just an advocate of social causes. With a strong belief in social impact and change, Sakal has now launched its crowdfunding platform, Social For Action. This digital platform brings together social service organizations and patrons to support various causes and create positive change in society. The success of this initiative demonstrates the power of technology to drive social change and improve lives. Join us in making a difference and visit Social for Action today.
A Zilla Parishad school in Pimpalgaon Gangdev is providing quality education and amenities to its students, resulting in an increase in the number of admissions, despite the availability of other English medium schools in the vicinity. However, to accomplish their further studies, students have to travel to Pathri village, which is expensive and unsafe for many girl students, leading to a discontinuation of their education.
To address this issue, a cycle bank project has been initiated by Social for Action through 'Samajbhan', which aims to provide cycles to the girl students of Pimpalgaon so that they can travel to and from school safely.
The Suryadatta Group of Institutes has already extended its support to the project, and people from all social strata are urged to contribute to the cause by providing financial aid or cycles for the project to reach maximum rural schools.
Act For Education: A Gamechanger For Underfunded Schools
'Social for Action' has launched the 'Act for Education' initiative to address the lack of basic facilities such as ‘Cycles for Girls’, toilets, and digital e-learning in schools. Through crowdfunding, the initiative has constructed toilets in two schools and is underway in two other schools in Pune district. Additionally, e-learning setups have been provided to three Zilla Parishad primary schools in Khed and Ambegaon talukas. The initiative aims to improve the academic experience and comfort of students, especially girls.
