Work in field of literacy : I run an organisation called Project FUEL (FUEL stands for: Forward the Understanding of Every Life Lesson) (http://bit.ly/Zs8jIv) under which we collect life lessons from people of all ages and backgrounds around the world. The organisation 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 in large. To facilitate this, we design full-length workshops with activities based on these life lessons.

No of Beneficiaries : 62000

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, I have been able to benefit more than 62,000 people all over the world. My method of teaching has been featured as an educational innovation in the database of "Center for Education Innovations". I have designed effective modules for 500 vulnerable students in Kabul and 800 in Kathmandu. I recently engaged in a four months program to empower daughters of sex workers.

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 : After 7 years of working towards building life skills awareness amongst various communities, I have realised my model of learning is easily replicable, competent in multicultural collaborations and in mobilising communities to make a holistic contribution to make things better. As a multi-faceted individual and someone with varied experiences, I can enhance the reach of social good and teaching through this award. It brings credibility to my work and also, introduces me to other active and impactful teachers with whom I can collaborate. The award encourages me to build innovative, creative and effective solutions with a humane approach for teaching. It is a prestigious recognition that will bring value for the efforts I have made as a young person and thus, will motivate me to continue to believe that when you learn you become a star. But when you teach you become a constellation
