Voyage Educare Foundation, a startup of NSRCEL from the Social Incubation Program is a mission-driven community of lifelong learners with one common goal – to help children reach their fullest potential and empower rural and urban stakeholders in this pursuit.   

Founded by Rizvi Aquil Abbas, Voyage Educare Foundation has been actively transforming society by facilitating education programs for children from low-income communities and training programs for teachers.   

Over the past few weeks, Voyage Educare has been working round-the-clock, conducting its flagship training program, Raabta across the country. Raabta – School Transformation Program (STP) aims to uplift and transform schools, thus building meaningful relationships between stakeholders responsible for a child’s holistic education. Raabta implements insights from nationally and internationally conducted research across best practices for schools.   

Socio-economic factors often discourage children from being a part of the formal education system. Voyage EduCare Foundation, through Raabta, builds connections among students, teachers, and parents and contributes towards making formal education accessible and efficient for children all across.  

The May 2022 Leg of the program took place in Kashmir, Kargil and Leh. The sessions covered concepts of learning loss, and culture-building and aimed at fostering a positive learning environment and encouraging parents to invest and take charge of their child’s education.  

This school transformation program takes underserved schools across the country and converts them into lighthouse schools that nurture and improve learning experiences and outcomes. Through Raabta, key stakeholders get to share their resources and expertise with schools in the vicinity and eventually improve the standards of education in the region.  

“It has been an incredible feeling being on the ground after a long time. The responses from teachers and the community have helped me realize the importance of the work we are doing.”, said Rizvi, Founder of Voyage Educare Foundation. 

With improved operations and clarity in structure, the program has brought about the progress that is visible through improved teacher retention, parental participation, and a spike in student engagement and attendance.  

With Voyage Educare Foundation’s dedicated efforts, we surely are certain of seeing the immediate change that they wish to bring about, one school at a time!
