Children's Khazana Foundation: Develop the entrepreneurial skills of 450 underprivileged children

Children need skills that will help them chart their own path in life. Entrepreneurial education teaches them these skills. 

Whether it is to pursue studies at the university, find a decent job position in a business or even open a business, our objective is to help improve the future generation of children in the slums. 
Teaching entrepreneurial skills is a first step towards breaking the circle of poverty they were born in. 

Mumbai's economy has continued to boom since the last three decades. The megacity has become the 12th richest city in the world in 2018. Behind this impressive figure hides a whole different reality: the growing gap between rich and poor. Indeed, 12 million people (which represents 55% of the Mumbai population) are living in dilapidated conditions in informal settlements better known as slums.  
Among these slums’ inhabitants, we can find 60% of children. Many of these children sleep under bridges and eat what they find in rubbish bins. They are often unregistered and their chance to break the cycle of poverty is limited.
The Khazana Foundation has chosen to help them break this vicious circle by providing them with savings accounts and financial education.

With its 20 000 small-scale manufacturing units and thousands of unregistered businesses, the 2000 Mumbai slums are a world in itself. A universe that the outside world is largely unaware of.

By teaching how to write a business plan, principles of accountancy, problem identification and problem-solving, the Khazana foundation empowers children to take control of their economic situation and their personal development.
We believe that teaching basic business skills is important.
By attending these courses, children will learn how to identify opportunities, solve problems, find collaboration, dare to innovate and trust their creativity!

The final objective of the course is to give children a solid foundation to find a job or create their own business whether it is in or outside of the slums. 

The donations will be used to pay finance professionals to teach 75 hours of entrepreneurship courses in the different locations of the Khazana foundation in Mumbai, India.
Moreover, children will benefit from several conferences where selected entrepreneurs will share their testimonies and experiences.
