Supported By

Project Udaan 2.0

An initiative to empower the poor and underprivileged youth of our Nation.
1. Need of the Project-Project Hypothesis :

The poor and underprivileged youth of the whole country, who stay in villages and small towns, cannot afford to study in good schools and colleges in the state or outside.

Hence, they suffer from the lack of good subject knowledge, English Communication, personality development and soft skills, knowledge about good career options, and access to good recruitment coaching etc.
Because of these serious deficiencies, they are not able to compete with other well to do youth and are left behind.

3. Hypothesis Validation:

A survey Was conducted in 10 States: UP, Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Orissa, Chhattisgarh, Tamilnadu and Karnataka in which 1092 Youth were surveyed.
In the survey, the poor young boys and girls mentioned repeatedly that they suffer from a lack of good knowledge of course subjects ,English Communication, personality development and soft skills, knowledge about good career options, and most importantly, access to good recruitment coaching etc. Therefore, we thought to start such courses.

4. Why Flexi Time and Flexi Location?

During the survey, Students had suggested flexi-time and Flexi location mode, as they also work for earning their livelihood for the family so they cannot attend live classes at a fixed time on working days by leaving their work.
Under this flexible system, they can study any time sitting anywhere.

5. Process Implementation:

• We will be implementing this project in collaboration with Govt. of India Agency, The CSC e-governance Services Ltd, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Govt. Of India.
• For the sake of ensuring Transparency, Once the student joins a course, he/she would be tagged to a mentor and also to the donor who has sponsored his study. The details of student’s name, father’s name, full address, Aadhar card no and mobile no would be shared with the donor.
• There will be a periodic evaluation (weekly/fortnightly) to assess the progress of the students.
• There will also be a panel of mentors. Five students will be tagged to each mentor. The mentor will talk to his/her mentees once every week to motivate the student as well as guide him/her forward in light of the weekly evaluation report.
• Courses are in flexi time & flexi location mode.
• For ensuring proper End Use of the donor’s money ,the periodic evaluation report of each student will be shared regularly with the concerned donor and the mentor.
• We will also be having weekly online live classes every Sunday so that students can clear their doubts with the teacher.
• Periodic Expenditure reports about the use of donor funds will also be shared with the donors.
• If any student is not attending classes regularly, message would go to the Common Service Centre of his / her village and Common Service Centre Academy of the concerned Block/ Tehsil, so that they will get in touch with the student concerned and do the needful to bring him back to the course.

6. Reach of the Programme:

As mentioned above, we are in Collaboration with the CSC e-governance Services Ltd, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Govt. Of India, to reach the deserving youth in every remote village and small town of the country .They have six lakhs Common Service Centres ( CSCs) in Six lakhs villages and fifty thousand Common Service Centre Academies at the block / tehsil level all over India .These centres and academies will work on our behalf to identify deserving poor young boys and girls, motivate them, get them registered on our portal for the courses, monitor the progress of the students, make their centres/ academies facilities available for week end live courses etc. They will also do publicity of our project Udaan 2.0 in their areas to spread our mission to reach every underprivileged youth in the remotest areas of the country. These centres will also ensure that no student of their village drops out after registering for the courses.

7. Monitoring and reporting mechanism

A. It will be done on daily basis by online dashboard. As soon as a student registers for the course, the details (name, father’s name, address, mob. No. etc) will be shared with the donors on a weekly basis.
B. The daily logging in of the student on the Learning Management Systems (LMS) Will be Monitored on a daily basis on the dashboard.
C. The performance of the student in the examination periodically would be monitored and shared with the Donors.
D. Any drop out tendency of any student would be checked and corrected with the help of the village common service centre through whom the said student had registered. (Risk Management)
E. Periodic Expenditure Reports will also be Shared with donors.
F. At the end of the project, we will hire an Independent Evaluation Agency which will evaluate and prepare Impact Report of our project performance.

8. Sustainability Plan:

The Project would be sustained year after year by CSR Funding of various corporate houses /Donation from high net worth individuals/donor agencies etc.

9. Summary of the Project:

• (A) Earth Care Foundation is an 18 years old registered Not for profit NGO with all the legal compliances in place;
(B) whoever looks at our website, says that we have a rare and exceptionally strong and rich team with very high credibility.
(C) In the past, through our Project Udaan 1.0 we empowered 3042 poor children of migrant labour in Delhi in an offline mode through our knowledge Centre. But because of it’s offline model, it’s scaling up is a very slow process. Hence as a sequel to this project Udaan 1.0 for small children, we are taking up Project Udaan 2.0 for poor and underprivileged youth of the whole country in an Online Mode.
(D) In this Online Mode, we can reach thousands of poor and underprivileged youths of the country with mere click of a button.
(E) That’s why we have taken up such an ambitious project of empowering ten thousand poor and underprivileged youth from all over the country in this financial year at a total cost of Rs.6.40 crores.

संक्षिप्त में प्रोजेक्ट उड़ान 2

पुराने ज़माने में हमारा देश एक बहुत ही विकसित राज्य और पूरी दुनिया के लिए शिक्षा का केंद्र था । लेकिन समय बीतने के साथ कुछ कारणों से हमारा देश पिछड़ता गया । देश के स्वतंत्र होने के बाद से राज्य की सरकारों ने, स्वयंसेवी संस्थाओं और राज्य के लोगों ने देश के विकास के लिये काफ़ी प्रयास किए हैं और उसका असर भी हुआ है ।
लेकिन आज भी देश के सुदूर गावों और छोटे शहरों में रहने वाले ग़रीब परिवारों के नौजवान लड़के और लड़कियाँ नौकरी और रोज़गार की दौड़ में पीछे रह जाते हैं ।
इसका मुख्य कारण यह है कि ग़रीब परिवारों से होने के कारण इनके माता पिता के पास बच्चों को राज्य के अंदर या राज्य के बाहर अच्छे स्कूलों और कॉलेजों में पढ़ाने के पैसे नहीं होते । इसलिए इन परिवारों के लड़के लड़कियाँ अपने गाँव या छोटे स्कूल, कॉलेज में पढ़ने के लिये मजबूर हो जाते हैं ।

फलस्वरुप, इन बच्चों को कुछ समस्याएँ होती हैं, जैसे -

फलस्वरुप, इन बच्चों को कुछ समस्याएँ होती हैं, जैसे -
१. इनकी अंग्रेज़ी कमजोर होती है ,
२. इनकी पर्सनैलिटी या व्यक्तित्व का विकास ठीक से नहीं हो पाता है और इन्हें कुछ ज़रूरी बातों की जानकारी पूरी तरह नहीं होती - जैसे - प्रतियोगी परीक्षा या इंटरव्यू की तैयारी कैसे करनी है, कैसे कपड़े पहन कर जाना है, कैसे बैठना है, कैसे जवाब देना है, आदि। इस कारण से ये इंटरव्यू में पिछड़ जाते हैं ।
३. इन्हें ये पूरी तरह पता नहीं होता कि आजकल कितने प्रकार के करियर या रोज़गार या नौकरियाँ मिल सकती हैं । अतः ये अपने आस पास ही कोई छोटी मोटी नौकरी या रोज़गार हासिल कर जीवन काटने को मजबूर हो जाते हैं ।
४. जो बच्चे कुछ अच्छी नौकरियों की प्रतियोगिता परीक्षा में बैठने की हिम्मत भी करते हैं, वो इन परीक्षाओं की कोचिंग का खर्च नहीं उठा पाते हैं ।इस कारण भी उनका इन अच्छी नौकरियों के लिये चयन नहीं हो पाता है ।

• अतः भारत के ग़रीब बच्चों को उनकी कमज़ोरियों पर विजय प्राप्त करने का रास्ता दिखाने के लिए हमारे देश के कुछ रिटायर्डआईएएस(IAS), आरआरटीएस(IRTS), आईएएएस (IAAS) अधिकारियों, सेना के रिटायर्ड कमांडरों ,बैंकों के रिटायर्ड अधिकारियों, तथा देश के नौजवान ऊँची शिक्षा प्राप्त कंप्यूटर इंजीनियरों, बड़ी प्राइवेट कंपनी में ऊँचे पदों पर कम करने वाले नौजवानों, अपना अच्छा व्यापार चला रहे देश के नौजवान युवक युवतियों ने मिलकर एक समाजसेवी योजना प्रोजेक्ट उड़ान 2 शुरू की है । .

ये योजना एक ग़ैर सरकारी स्वयंसेवी संस्था अर्थ केयर फाउंडेशन ( Earth Care Foundation )द्वारा संचालित की जाएगी ।
इस योजना में देश के ग़रीब युवक युवतियों को ऑनलाइन नीचे लिखे कोर्स नाम मात्र खर्च ( नॉमिनल कॉस्ट ) पर दिये जाएँगे :

१. अंग्रेज़ी भाषा कोर्स,- Fast Info द्वारा
२. पर्सनालिटी डेवलपमेंट कोर्स,- KTC द्वारा
३. नये करियर, नौकरी, रोज़गार के बारे में बताने का कोर्स,-   KTC द्वारा
४. नौकरी प्रतियोगिता परीक्षा कोचिंग-NEET, IIT JEE,  NDA , Air Force , CDS, SSC, and Banking etc. - Physics Wallah द्वारा

- ये सभी कोर्स मोबाइल, लैपटॉप, आईपैड, या किसी भी कंप्यूटर पर किया जा सकता है ;

- ये कोर्स दिन के चौबीस घंटों में से कभी भी किया जा सकता है ।
यानी देश के किसी भी छोटे से गाँव या छोटे से शहर में रहने वाले नौजवान लड़के लड़कियाँ, कहीं भी बैठकर और कभी भी अपनी सुविधानुसार समय पर, और नाम मात्र के खर्च पर अपने मोबाइल या कंप्यूटर पर पढ़ाई कर अपना भविष्य चमका सकेंगे ।
