Partnership with UNESCO Center for Peace
One of the Whizjuniors students, Aahaan Phadnis, was the Global winner of the UNESCO Competition last year. He was honored for receiving the recognition and thanked Whizjuniors for his victory as he has learned all those Technology skills from Whizjuniors.com. His performance and determination caught the eye of the UNESCO’s director and that is where the journey of this collaboration began.
“That is exactly where they thought of partnering with an organization that has a mission which aligns with their mission and vision. Hence, this association with UNESCO happened,” shared Daga.
“We work as two separate organizations and have our own set of goals and aims to achieve. But there is that one thing that stays in common between the two organizations is the want of bettering the future of Children and the youth, who will ultimately lead the world. We have been continuously and fabulously working on the same and we strive to keep this association an everlasting one with UNESCO,” she added.
The idea behind the partnership is to give an opportunity and a global platform to more and more students by maintaining focus on the want of bettering the future of Children and the youth that is ultimately going to lead the world.
Fulfilling larger goals of education
The goals are-
To contribute in the global efforts to provide quality education for all
Mobilizing knowledge and policies for sustainable development
To help build inclusive knowledge societies through information and communication
Enhancing entrepreneurial and learning skills of young minds
According to Daga, they had seen many kids with ideas of entrepreneurship, ideas that they wanted to seed and water enough for it to grow bigger and louder.
“Our platform has given them the path to building their dreams. A student came up with the idea of GharkaKhana, wherein he supplies food to working professional that housewives make, hence reducing the consumption of junk, thus giving a tough competition to the current food delivery company. We are helping him build the idea through a website and an app,” she explained.
