Avasara Academy
Description

Through Avasara Academy, IndoStar has contributed towards providing education to adolescent girls from economically weaker sections of the society. Based on the Cambridge curriculum, with an emphasis on leadership, entrepreneurship, and Indian studies, the Academy is equipping young women with essential tools to navigate life after school. Set up as a residential learning programme in Pune, the Academy continues to expand, introducing new facilities such as libraries and hostel accommodation. The students and their parents have changed their perception of receiving education; parents are now willing to send their kids to school to complete their schooling. The teaching techniques used here are more practical which prepares students for real life scenarios. The students get an equal opportunity to actively involve themselves in sports as they have access to the Oxford Golf ground in Pune.

Empowering Women
Description

This initiative promotes the economic empowerment of women through vermi-composting. Learning this skill equips members of villages with a life-long method of earning money while living a healthier life. Women have become more confident and have the ability to contribute towards household incomes, while also being further committed to developing their marketing skills to increase sales. Children in schools are learning the importance of hygiene and have become advocates for the construction of kitchen gardens and soak pits in their community.
