TEENAGERS from impoverished communities don’t have the opportunity to just be kids, many dropping out of school to help support their families. D4D gives school dropouts the chance to use drama to develop their personal and professional skills - such as behaviour, teamwork, communication skills and critical thinking - to make them more employable and keep them from falling into the trap of harmful life choices such as alcohol and crime. Cost of training one adolescent for a year is ₹2,182.
DROPOUTS aged 18 to 25 from marginalised communities train for three months on life skills, career guidance and employability skills along with domain specific skills in retail sales, customer services and hospitality. Mentors identify their interests, help them hone their abilities, maximise their support network by engaging parents and provide exposure to professional environments. ₹10,357 covers the cost of training one youth for three months.
IN private schools for low-income group families, teenagers don't get proper guidance to various career opportunities. By building capacities of key stakeholders, like parents and teachers, this program creates a conducive environment in such schools to help students make informed decisions about their career and life. Bright Future conduct life skills development, career awareness and mentoring sessions to enable this process. The cost of training an adolescent for a year is ₹2,489.
The Drama for Development initiative is a great example of Bright Future's quest to do something different -- that will help the kids grow in skills, and learn for life. I hope they are always able to retain this difference.
We're happy to see the sessions and services are creating much needed awareness and the difference they are making in students’ lives. From low-income families, our students don’t have much guidance about possible careers and courses they could take up.
I had no idea what to expect when I was asked to teach Bright Future participants English, but ended up being a journey I will never forget. I’m happy organisations like NRI exist to assist those who don’t have the opportunity to gain expensive degrees.
