ABOUT ICREON FOR GOOD
When we travelled to a remote village in Noida and asked one of the kids, what do you wish to become when you grow up? He replied “I will grow up to become a rickshaw puller”. That’s when it hit us! Why does this have to be a child’s dream?
And we established Icreon For Good in 2014 with a belief that: ‘No one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone’. Because of which we started off with our immediate surroundings, with an overriding focus on making education available to the youth that currently fall outside the radar of most government initiatives.
At present we are working with bridge schools that provide free or almost free education to children who have never been part of a formal education system. As, most of these children are first generation learners and do not realize the importance of education, these schools encourage kids to pursue their education each year.
Also, we believe that the youth of our country can benefit tremendously from computer literacy. The fact that computers have become an inevitable part of our life, better computer literacy will lead to development of specialized skills and better employment.
We started off this endeavor by roping in volunteers and stakeholders from both within and outside of Icreon. Over the past 6 months IFG has successfully adopted two schools with a beneficiary number of 800 kids.
Our Key Initiatives
