Hi Chidambara,
Thanks for introducing Sanchayan to us all. The idea is very bright! Can you please let us know how you reach out to school & college students/underprivileged? In what regions of the country do you operate?

Hello Badhri, Thanks for your interest in the concept. Well, we conduct outreach workshops for privileged as well as underprivileged youth in Delhi/NCR. We are trying to make this self-sustaining by charging privileged segment and doing free workshops for the underprivileged, but it is very difficult to convince the privileged schools and colleges to pay up. Otherwise, the program is quite successful and appreciated because the content is relevant.The topics in these workshops range from the basics of banking, shares and mutual funds to the everyday practical finance that each of us needs to know and understand for a better future. We simplify finance for the underprivileged. We are working for Financial Inclusion, Financial Literacy and finally the most important - Financial Security. Hope that I have been able to resolve your query. Take Care.

Hey, NGOPOST seems like a good platform to spread the idea of financial inclusion & literacy and to source volunteers for conducting workshops for the Youth. Let's explore how we can involve the youth to understand and manage money so that they can become financially independent.
