EDUCATION CAFES

Stage of Idea conceptual stage

Explain your idea in details:

Albert Einstein once said Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think beyond those. Quality education is not just about numbers and letters, but also about empowerment. It is about equipping children and youth to be vocal citizens who stand up for their rights. Education is a force multiplier which enables self-reliance, boosts economic growth by enhancing skills, and improves peoples lives by opening up opportunities for better livelihoods. But is this education accessible to one and all? All over the world children are facing challenges on the path of education: girls are kept out of school because they are required to do chores in their homes or because schools considered to be unsafe by their parents; disabled children are denied access altogether or do not receive the attention and support they require; books are missing and teachers are poorly trained; schooling is disrupted by violence. What is the solution to all this? Well, do you know, only 30 out of a 100 children receive education beyond 10th grade. My idea revolves around bringing the schools to children, if they cant reach schools. It is about creating education cafes in every locality. About 50% of the illiterate population does not have access to electronic appliances and internet services, thus this the solution for them. At times when internet services used to be rare, in order to access the internet, where did our parents and grandparents go? To a cyber café. Then why cant we have education cafes? There can be a setup of about 5-6 laptops in each café via which only studies can be accessed. Children can look at videos to learn, made by professionally trained teachers, they can post their queries in the comments, have online exams, and not just academics, but but be engaged in co-curricular too.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

I firmly believe quality education is the foundation of sustainable development, and therefore of the Sustainable Development Goals. NGOs and governments can join hands and come together to support this initiative. It can be free of cost for the students but the government can generate income from setting up these cafes. They can be sponsored by Ed tech companies, or even laptop brands, making it a good source of promotion and income as well. This can be a good pocket-money type opportunity for the educated youth too, they could take up extra classes with the students online and get paid accordingly. This would also increase employment and awareness in youngsters. We all together can make the world literate.

Alayna Malhotra the idea that you are working upon is a very good medium to educate our vast population. If our government thinks on these lines we can surely become the world leaders in education.
Please work on it further and try to spread this idea as fast and far as possible.

Very innovative idea which can take India to great heights
If this idea is conceptualised it will be very beneficial for the students of the lower strata . The students can gather vast knowledge from these education cafés and uplift there financial status.
