Work in field of literacy : Project FUEL is a life skills education initiative. We collect life lessons from people of all ages and backgrounds across the world- and design full-lengthworkshops with activities, exercises and games based on these life lessons and use performance and interactive mediums like theatre, spoken word poetry, storytelling, communicative expression, and creative writing to help internalize these life lessons.The initiative seeks to build a community of young adults who live, learn and share in order to make meaningful psycho-social and emotional contribution to themselves and the society at large. Our vision is tofill the need gap of life solutions using the human experience, and by making each life count. Project FUELhas taught over 62,000 individuals in India.

Social Impact : Project FUEL, through its unique life lessons based pedagogy, is educating young adults from their own experiences as well as those of people around them. From differently abled kids in India to victims of human trafficking in Nepal to middle school children in Afghanistan to refugees in Europe, we have been able to benefit more than 62,000 people all over the world. Our method of teaching has been featured as aneducational innovation in the database of "Center for Education Innovations". We have designed effectivemodules for 500 vulnerable students in Kabul and 800 in Kathmandu. We recently engaged in a four monthsprogram to empower daughters of sex workers. In 2016, we travelled to Sweden and then through The Netherlands, Germany, France and Hungary countries that hosted the refugees during the Syrian refugee crisis.

Fund Outlay : 3000000

The challenge of arranging funds is being met : The total funds put so far are 30 Lakh rupees. The foundation of our revenue model, so far, was rooted in conducting FUEL workshops, sessions and talks with academic/non-academic institutions. But in 2017 we are expanding the model to creating customized curriculums for individuals as well as organizations to subscribe to both, on field as well as their digital platforms. The Project FUEL book and documentary from the Third Masterpiece Tour, focusing on refugee crisis, will be out by the mid of this year.

This Award is going to impact the work in future : we haverealised our model of learning is easily replicable, competent in multicultural collaborations and in mobilising communities to make a holistic contribution to make things better.
