Even after 69 years since the Independence, a major chunk of India’s population still have no exposure to the basic education. Even those who manage to get admissions in schools to pursue primary education remain clueless to push up their academic career ahead in the absence of proper guidance to them. Acute poverty and inability of the poor parents living in the villages and small towns are forcing children to stay away from schools, even as the government has been doing its bit to fund the cost of primary education in the country.
Prabhat Saxena, the Founder & CEO of the Srijan Ka Sankalp, has seen all this from a very close quarter while pursuing his education from Rath, a small and nondescript town of Uttar Pradesh. Even as he became a school topper in + 2 examinations, lack of proper knowledge and guidance initially proved to be a deterrent in his pursuit for higher studies. In those days, it is quite difficult to get admissions in premier engineering and medical colleges of the country, but his dream of making it big in his life and his penchant for choosing a career in engineering which at that point of time was considered to be one of the most respected and sought after professions in the country, pushed him towards the IIT.

After getting into IIT, it felt like a dream come true for him but, he had another bombshell waiting for him when Prabhat met fellow students who were far smarter and had exposure to extracurriculars unlike students from villages and small towns. Soon after joining the IIT, he realized how much it was difficult for small-town boys to seek admission in premier engineering colleges, academic institutions unless and until they have someone to guide them, motivate them and encourage them. This very thought and his eagerness to do something for the underprivileged, poor children who have no proper means and support to pursue their dreams and propel their academic career, prompted him to start his own NGO – Srijan Ka Soch at his home town way back in 2004.
Since then, there has been no looking back for him. In the past 15 years, Srijan Ka Soch has evolved into Srijan Ka Sankalp, transforming the lives of thousands of children, students in his hometown and surrounding areas. Now he is determined to replicate the success of his NGO at pan India level.
