Our achievements so far-
- Free Summer Language Program:
We started with small activities along with the idea of building a library in my hometown, Bihar. But Covid-19 pandemic gave a new shape to our activities and thus our first big project became the International Summer language Program. It is an intensive A1 level Language Course of 12 weeks. We offered 6 languages to candidates willing to learn them by connecting them to 12 qualified native language speakers who took the role of teachers. Two teachers were arranged for each language course. We received more than 150 applications from all over the world, including my hometown and other marginalized areas of Bihar. In the beginning, I personally called my friends, relatives, villagers for their children and former neighbours and explained to them how to access this online education.
