Project Karishma 2020

Twelve old Karishma was amongst the brightest girls in the fifth grade. Her parents work hard to give her a chance at education, something they never got themselves. 

The pandemic changed many things for this family of four. Her daily-waged parents struggle with the limitations that the pandemic has brought. Karishma and her mother also got infected with COVID-19. The healthcare bills further affected them. 

Karishma’s school transitioned to online learning. While online learning is difficult for everyone, it is especially hard for families with resource limitations. With no computer, tablet, smart phone or Internet access, Karishma missed months of online school and subsequently fell behind. 

When we learnt about this, we had to act fast. We set up Karishma with a tablet and high speed Internet connection. She gradually caught up on missed lessons. 

Our goal with Project Karishma is to bridge the digital gap for children like Karishma and ensure continuity with education.


Since its inception in 2020, Project Karishma has been dedicated to supporting two children with school fees and materials, tablet and internet access.

Four year on, Karishma has flourished; she excels academically, is an avid footballer and consistently earns certificates for achievements such as best calligraphy and perfect attendance.
