2023-2024 WINNERS

The project aims to empower rural youth from underprivileged backgrounds, providing them with resources and support to pursue their interests and aspirations. Through discussion-based learning, students identify and address personal and communal challenges, culminating in community-focused initiatives that promote positive change.

Enlightenment team member, Annika, comments:


"Enlightenment was simply a discussion-based curriculum designed to foster critical thinking. However, during my fieldwork, I understood the broader impact these sessions had on the lives of rural students. A girl said to me: “You are the only person here who asked me what my passion is, and believed I could achieve anything in life.” I came to see that Enlightenment offered more than just skill enhancement for these students, it was sowing a seed of hope. This realisation was a turning point for the project: I understood that the education we offer transcends mere content; it's about the experience itself."
