Bhavishya Yaan - a Mission to a Brighter Future

The students of Bhavishya Yaan programme presented their learning experience by showcasing their English speaking and soft skills in the form of various theme-based skits and talks to Rotary Club of Bombay West President Anand Gupta, First Lady Anita Gupta, PE Samapti Patel, Director Naresh Merchant, Secretary Nilesh Samant, PP Sukhdev Puri and Anns Urmil Puri and Shahin Merchant on Saturday, 13th September, 2018.  Later, President Anand Gupta addressed the students in fluent Marathi, congratulating them for their performances and motivating them to do well in life through determination and hard work.
Bhavishya Yaan is a skills enhancement programme for less privileged children studying at Municipal Schools has been acclaimed by Rotary International as the most innovative project in the field of literacy. The programme was first implemented by Rotary Club of Bombay in partnership with Vidya, an NGO which has a track record of running educational institutes for the less-privileged.
Our Club is successfully running this programme at Dixit Road Municipal School in Vile Parle East, Mumbai since 2011, funded by a UK based NGO. A batch of around 120 students are selected from the V to VIII standard and given structured coaching for two years in conversational English, Computer Education and Soft Skills outside their regular school hours.
The students who were part of this initiative have generally improved their academic performance and have become either more employable or better equipped to face the demanding challenges of a fruitful higher education. Deserving and meritorious students have also been later given scholarships for further studies to make them realize their dreams of a better future.
Encouraged by the positive results, the Club commenced Bhavishya Yaan programme at Sane Guruji Marathi Vidyamandir, Santacruz West, Mumbai in July, 2014.  And in October 2017, it extended the Bhavishya Yaan programme to their primary section
