Welcome to our tenth edition of the short'ncrisp newsletter. We hope you are able to read these occasionally and are able to get a "feel" of the slow but definite changes that YOU are helping us bring about in the lives of many.
So finally we completed the admissions of all our Grade 10 to PU students and their colleges have started. We are now starting the next phase of support (Program Sethu) for them. Meanwhile we recruited 35 more students Grade 8 / 9 across while also starting our newest center at Ramagondanahalli , Bangalore.
We hope you and your loved ones are safe and comfortable. We are sure you all have the well wishes of our 320+ families that you have been supporting.
Here is a glimpse into other developments that's happening at our end. We have broken updates into 4 quadrants - Operations, Partnerships, People and Enablers ( i.e. You - Our well-wishers)
We started our 7th center at Ramagondanahalli, Bangalore. The center will start with 19 students of Grade 9 children for now.
Our Rural Projects (Bangalore and Kerala) continues to run its scaled version of Sethu and Stambha programs. A total of 180+ students are expected to be benefitted from the program. Write to us to know more
We have also added 7-8 new subject teachers into our Teacher Pool for 2022-23.
Partnership and Collaborations
We initiated a new partnership with MPower. This will be a 7 part series of workshops held for our students. their parents and our staff over 2022-23. Topics range from "Peer Pressure & it’s influence" to "Positive Parenting" to "Anger & Aggression Management"
People - Meet our Staff
Meet Seema - Our very own SECOND student-alumni turned staff for our Kadugudi Center. Seema is doing her BCom currently but offered her help to play the role of Center-Coordinator for our Kadugudi Center for evening hours (after her college). Seema has been our student since 2019 and wishes to GIVE BACK to the society as she carves her own career. This is her way of starting that journey.
