Project Drona - Bridging the Resource Gap in Rural Education System

Rural communities have their own unique set of strengths and challenges, especially when working with young people. Close-knit neighborhoods, strong family support systems, and a strong community ethic combine with scarcity of resources, lack of opportunities, and vast geographical service areas to form social systems that require a tailored approach to service delivery. We at Tubelight Foundation, taking upon oneself towards the Rural Mentorship Program under Project Drona, Delivering quality mentoring services & bringing mentoring into often fragmented communities. We see mentoring programs hold great promise for rural India and its bright population.

Project Roshni: E-Governance App to solve Rural Governing Problems

The notion of ‘Gram Swaraj’ as envisioned by Mahatma Gandhi is the true spirit of democracy. It is now instrumental in the development and rural reconstruction. The development will commence and start primarily in the village. Gandhiji famously stated, “If India is not to perish, we have to begin with a lower rung of the ladder. If that was rotten, all work done at the top of the intermediate level was bound to fall ultimately.” Gandhiji advocated the need for decentralization and liberation of the villages from exploitation. We at Tubelight Foundation have taken this initiative with the main aim of this Project Roshni to help individuals share their problems through photos, voice, or text messages to the dedicated administrator. This app will keep the people of panchayat updated through notifications and polls about upcoming projects, supporting the Grievance Redressal Mechanism, vital for participative and responsive governance. Objectives, Secure a greater measure of participation of people in local governance by ensuring their rightful space to express and communicate grievances and suggestions related to any or all the activities of the Grama Panchayats and its Institutions. ii.
