Working for Children & Women Empowerment...!

Step Up Foundation started in 22 July 2010. Step Up Foundation is a non-profit organization(MH 1479/2010/Pune) . Foundation work towards educating the underprivileged children in the slums and imparting life skills education (adolescent education) for adolescents.

StepUp Foundation's Objectives

Life skills education

This is actually an adolescent education program. The focus is on imparting life skills education to school children (adolescents) to make positive changes in their thinking pattern, attitudes, approaches and hence behavior. Life skills education is a value addition program for young adults to help them understand concept of ‘self’ and able to assess their skills and abilities and make use of it in more productive way. At school level we focus on 9th standard children as the age is perfect to understand and grasp all these concepts in life skills education. Secondly, here onwards they start taking responsibilities and decisions both in personal and professional life. Life skills education helps them to select correct option for them and take responsibilities of it. Topics covered under this program are concept and understanding changes that occur in adolescence.

Need for knowledge and awareness

One of the much-debated topics across the world is the importance of sex education in schools. In India, the topic has already created a stir and lot of anxieties among the citizens, particularly when there is huge outcry among people for the rising number of sexual violence. Among the survey it has seen that 80 to 90% adolescents have tried to get the information about it through porn sites or from peer groups or some other unreliable sources. This leads to create more misunderstandings and malpractice about sex. So we decided to start Adolescent education program covering complete sex education and some other issues related to them. A comprehensive sex education can help the present generation live a secured life. Adolescents show some peculiar psychological and behavioral traits, which can turn into bigger problems if not handled correctly and not given correct information at right time. This will help them to grow into an adult who has good self-esteem, is socially integrated, faces changes and challenges, copes and adapts to conflicts and stress.

Child Education

We try to motivate children to go to the school regularly. We sponsor their education from first to tenth standard and also provide education material to them. From the survey we did in the slums, fact seen was though children are going to school they are unable to read and write. So we started support classes in the slum. In support class children learn basic reading writing and other subjects with interesting methods.
