Background

What is the One Thing you would tell a younger person, we asked 86 years old Captain Chandra. He said “It’s better to do something and fail, than to succeed at doing nothing”

Life is just one long learning curve and while we get lessons from teachers, colleagues, friends and even enemies, there’s no one that can teach us as like our grandparents.       

Young people tend to forget that seniors were once their age and have gone through similar challenges. The older generation can serve as a valuable source of guidance and insight, as they’re able to help put things in perspective.

Background

With Right to Education and driven teams of people making education a reality for children from impoverished families, young children are unable to be what they can be.

A major part of their bleak future is attributed to dysfunctional families.  Families of these children often have a myriad of issues that mean children come home to a chaotic rather than calm home. Apart from a difficult life, which is often treacherous, children also have to face abuse and cruelty. Young children are often mistreated by adults and forced to work or commit crimes.

She wonders  if she could connect with her grand daughters, perhaps take an Uber to visit.  “But I’m 67 years old. I’ll never figure out all this new technology,”

Background

We clearly understand that there is a lack of motivation for teenaged children from poor families in school and how low the bar is set for their goals. These kids only strive to be employees at fast food chains or prayed to make it big in music and sports without the proper support. These children tend to score lower on standardized tests, receive lower grades and have higher dropout rates.
