Aditya Kumar and Shubham Deshmukh, participants of the 39th batch of IRMA's flagship PGDRM, represented IRMA at the 2019 edition of the Young Social Entrepreneur Programme, Singapore.
They presented their idea titled, Saarthi, to a panel of experts.
The idea behind Saarthi is to empower the students by inculcating accountability, transparency, and universality in the existing education system to build a bright future for them. Saarthi is a Blockchain-based decentralized platform which connects donors with rural low-income government school teachers.
The teachers will receive monthly incentives based on attendance and fixed incentives based on performance. The platform enables transparent and cyclic process for donors to keep a track of their donations and see the results from the money invested.
This idea came up during the 47-day Village Fieldwork Segment stay in the tribal region of Gujarat when Shubham was based in Sanada, Chhota Udepur desitrict and Aditya Kumar in Dixal, Valsad district. The dilapidated situation of primary and secondary education delivery system in these villages acted as an impetus to start the Saarthi Ecosystem.
Young Social Entrepreneur Programme 2019 was organized by the Singapore International Foundation in Singapore from 20th March to 23rd March 2019.
The Young Social Entrepreneurs (YSE) programme inspires, equips and enables youth of different nationalities to start or scale-up their social enterprises in Singapore and beyond.
