Show graduates new career dreams

Focus: Children and Youth, Education

36% Funded
SELF-discovery and an understanding of opportunities in the wider world help shape career dreams. Fund this transformative journey for 30 committed youth at ₹5,000 each to prepare them for successful futures.

Every year, Medha organise Rubaru - a journey for their most driven alumni to step out of their hometowns and comfort zones to explore opportunities elsewhere.

This year, 30 graduates have been selected from 35 UP colleges to travel to Delhi and Gurugram. Without ‘adult’ guidance for the first time, they are asked to look within for their dreams, then open their eyes to new career options offered by the destination.

All it takes is a little bit from everyone!

Fundraiser Timeline

Every ₹5,000 will send one young graduate on this life-changing journey!

We hope the Medhavis have a joyful learning experience!

WHY THIS JOURNEY MATTERS

Rubaru aims to make graduates believe in their dreams by showing that they are within reach and not confined to the limitations of their hometowns. This will become apparent when, after articulating their career choices, the students visit corporate offices in Gurugram to meet successful professionals who also followed their dreams. This will further facilitate each young participant to benefit from a network of supporting peers and mentors.

Activities are carefully planned to push each participant to begin realising their dreams
WHY DELHI AND GURUGRAM?

Based on Medha's 3,000 hours of life skills training experience, when asked about career aspirations most students tend to recite the only employment options known to them: government job, bank PO, doctor, teacher, etc. They have little exposure to opportunities that exist beyond these jobs. Delhi and Gurugram are buzzing with drive and individuality - where they can meet professionals, many from small towns too, who have rewarding careers.

This was the first time I travelled on my own, without my parents. I felt a sense of responsibility towards myself and my fellow travellers. This was the first time I was keeping track of time, taking care of my belongings and meeting complete strangers.

Within our dreams and aspirations we find our opportunities.

Rubaru has made me aware of my qualities and strengths. I know I can engage with a diverse group, plan and present my ideas and also stay positive even during rough times.

THE PLAN

Every ₹5,000 raised will cover the cost of one 'Medhavi', including their travel expenses, food, accommodation and learning materials. While the fundraiser is running, Medha will identify industry exposure opportunities in Delhi and Gurugram for the trip. And, at the same time, Medha alumni will be invited to apply for Rubaru. Once the 30 are selected, Rubaru will begin!

30 driven Medha alumni will be selected to take part in this transformative journey
