Lighting up Lives through Education

Throughout the developing world, going to school is rarely free. Students are required to pay their own transportation costs, purchase uniforms, textbooks, notebooks and pencils. Children who cannot afford these basic costs cannot attend school. As families struggle to stay above the poverty line, the additional expense of school becomes an unlikely investment. And yet, universal education has proven to be the most effective means of eliminating endemic poverty, and on an individual level has been shown to be the most sustainable escape from poverty’s clutches. Research has shown that every year of school increases an individual’s wages by 10 percent. The gains are even greater in developing countries.

Amrita Shilpakala Kshetra

The Amrita Shilpa Kalakshethra was established with a mission to revive the traditional Indian art forms like Wood Carving, Sculpting, Painting etc. Practiced by only a few groups of communities, these fine arts are slowly disappearing into oblivion because the skillsets required for these crafts remained family secrets within a small group of artisans. Through a collaboration between the Government of India and Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, the Center seeks to keep these ancient art forms alive through scientifically designed courses. Providing full financial support with stipends is a huge encouragement to attract talent and the training helps the budding artisans to improve the quality of the artefacts. Our efforts help to build a financially viable career choice for these artisans by empowering them to find global markets.

Scholarships

Fighting farmer suicide by keeping kids in school In recent years, suicide has been spreading like an epidemic among farmers in India who suffer from debt and crop failure. Often, seeing no hope for themselves or their future generations, whole families commit suicide together. Through providing scholarships to children of farmers living below the poverty line, M.A. Math aims to lay a stronger economic foundation upon which these families can base their lives. The scholarships give the children new options to break out of the cycle of poverty and give hope to the whole family, thereby working to prevent suicide.
