EDUCATION
AKSHARA HIGH SCHOOL

Being Human has been associated with Akshara since June 2012. The Akshara school, Mumbai, is a not-for-profit school. The school’s motto is to focus on social inclusion for educational and economic growth and to level inequalities ingrained due to gender, caste, economic and religious discrimination. To make education affordable and accessible, the fee structure at the school has been kept to a basic minimum.

Being Human – The Salman Khan Foundation supports the school by funding the education of over 200 children.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT
CENTERS

In February 2013, Being Human together with Coca Cola and NIIT Foundation, helped build Career Development Centers in non-urban areas which aimed to provide training to the local, educated and underserved youth and through that training, enhance their employability. The training courses were designed to meet the entry level job requirements of the organized sector.
EDUCATIONAL RESOURCE
CENTER, WAJE

In August 2014, Being Human – The Salman Khan Foundation started an educational resource center in a village called Waje, in the Raigad district, to provide basic teaching aids and tools in arithmetic, English, Marathi, health awareness and social themes to children from the local community, from grades one to four, to enhance their English language skills. Improved English language skills, in turn, give them access to better learning tools which are otherwise available mostly to urban students.

In the academic year 2015-2016, 81 children from the local community have benefited from this center.
MAHARASHTRA PRABODHAN
SEVA MANDAL (MPSM)

MPSM is a voluntary organization engaging in educational and developmental action for the upliftment of tribal and farming communities in Maharashtra since the last fifty years.

THE VEER INITIATIVE

In January 2014, Being Human announced the Veer initiative together with The American India Foundation, Thums Up and CNN-IBN to bring the differently abled into the mainstream so the focus is on their abilities and not their disabilities. The initial target for this initiative is to train and help over 1000 people with disabilities gain employment.

As of March 2016, 2745 individuals have been trained and 1553 of these individuals have been provided employment.
