What is Project RISE?
ARISE Impact started a self driven initiative called Project RISE to empower the visually challenged students at Indraprastha College for Women of Delhi University. The aim of the project is to empower lives through self-learning and self-training methodologies. Bilingual-audio based Course Modules are developed under the project. This is developed keeping in mind the challenges faced by the visually impaired. Furthermore, ARISE Impact trainers aid them in building confidence. This training involves different fun-loving games along with personality development activities. Additionally, the trainers help in imparting employability skills. As a result, it will help them to pursue their cherished career path and dreams.
The entire team of Project RISE is passionately working towards building their networks and partnership with employers. Consequently, this will help the differently abled students to be hired easily.
The faces behind the project
Bhavika Kohli from IPCW led a group of college students and hence ARISE Impact was started. Currently, the project is being enthusiastically carried out under the leadership of Priyasha Sharma, a second year student at IPCW. She is working along with the volunteers of ARISE Impact from IPCW. The enthusiasm of these volunteers coupled with the developed course models have touched lives of thousands of differently abled across India. Consequently, the efforts of the team during such sessions, helped in improving concentration levels. As a result, their test scores improved by an average of 21%.
