Great ideas strike when one is least expecting it to happen. The story of Prangan Foundation and the idea behind it runs on similar lines. It was when a group of friends set out to distribute food to the poor, where they found little kids playing around on the streets, while they were unaware of their basic right to be educated. Looking at the condition of these children, the friends wanted to desperately do something for them. Their goal was not to feed them with some food because the food will quench only a day’s hunger whereas education will help them to quench their hunger for lifelong. That is when the whole idea of educating them, happened. They believed that through education, the children will be empowered and it will prove to be an excellent medium for them to help themselves. Another issue that was noticed was that the children who are receiving a formal education, lag in the English language. They excel in all the other subjects, but English scared them. They considered it to be an alien language. This is when they decided to impart the knowledge of the English language to these children and help them overcome their fear and anxiety towards the language. It was found that more than half of the children receiving formal education from schools faced the same issue. This is when the decision to start an organization that would focus on making the world a better place for the upcoming generation, made. With this determination, the first project of Prangan Foundation, Project Chanchalmann was taken up.
To start the project, there was a need to attract children and also find a place for them to learn. There was a survey that was conducted in the nearby areas to find out which child should be put under which age group, for the teaching-learning process to become a little simpler. Through the survey, an idea regarding their socio-economic background was found and the environment that they are constantly exposed to was explored. This helped to understand the behaviorism of the children, in the latter stages.
It was on 2nd October 2018, that Project Chanchalmann was officially inaugurated and it was a kickstart, with about 25 volunteers and about 40 children whom we had to place our focus on. At that time, the project had only one center, located at Bharat Mata School, Dombivli West. Today it has expanded to have 2** centers, with 100** volunteers and 74** children.
