Abstract on Advocacy for Quality Education
The Eureka Child Foundation team in Tamilnadu has been working for the past many years towards ensuring quality education for all children. Recently, we have launched a campaign titled "Every Child Can" to advocate for the cause of quality education among various stakeholders in education. College students, people from various NGOs, working professionals and volunteers from different backgrounds have started participating in this campaign. The first step in the campaign is a "learning audit" (similar to a social audit conducted by groups like MKSS) conducted by volunteers in the community and sharing the results using simple language that they can understand.
In this presentation, we will talk about learning audits carried out in more than 150 villages as part of the Every Child Can campaign, how it has empowered poor parents and community members and the next steps in taking the campaign to a larger group of people.
Selva will also share his experience on mobilizing more than 10000 volunteers across different cities in India over the past 10 years!.
Selva is a Chemical Engineer by profession and is working with IIT Madras as a Technical Superintendent. Selva has been volunteering with AID for the past 10 years and have successfully built AID Delhi chapter as a volunteer movement. He is currently volunteering with Eureka Child Foundation as Volunteer Coordinator, Intern Coordinator, Donor Relations Manager and Events Coordinator. He recently won the Volunteer Hero 2013 award by iVolunteer and has been sponsored to attend the Points of Light conference on Volunteering and Service, the world's biggest conference on Volunteering at Atlanta recently.
