Synopsis:

Spring is the time of the year when nature comes in her eternal best! The significance and importance of spring can be felt from the fact that life starts to bloom in an energetic and fresh way. In the similar manner, adolescents is perhaps the most important and significant time of a man’s life, when the spark inside them starts to ignite! It is in this phase of life that we witness certain physical and some of the most important psychological changes in our body and mind. The stage of adolescents is peculiar in itself in that we neither belong to the child nor the adult group. It is like being sandwiched in between childhood and adulthood! And strangely enough, this is the stage which, if not handled carefully can lead to an imbalanced adulthood which in turn can result in a disastrous future ahead. And for many of us who are not quite aware of this issue, here it is worth mentioning that almost 23% of India’s population fall under this group.
The main reason of concern however, is the lack of knowledge about the problems faced by individuals of this age group. Hormonal changes, inability to express, fear or insecurity is few the main issues which seem to trouble our young and immature minds. What makes this situation graver is that individuals find it very difficult to address or share these issues with parents/guardians or elders. And this has instigated a series of incidents recently where the individuals were exploited, sexually harassed, harmed, and tortured by the evils of our society. 

So the point here is that, under no circumstances can we afford to neglect this issue that has been troubling our young brigade since time immemorial. It is high time we become aware of our duties and work together to bring a change; a change which will allow our young minds to breathe, dream and to express themselves in a way, they never did before! 

Our mission for this Ride4Charity!
As mentioned earlier, ignorance has been the main cause of certain issues linked with this problem. Failure in understanding the physical and psychological changes during adolescence is the root cause of a majority of problems. Adolescents are prone to getting carried away by perceptions generated by misleading friends, teachers, siblings and even guardians! so the antidote is to raise on these issues as much awareness as we can!

Keeping this thing in mind, Indrajit Sinha, on behalf of WAY foundations have decided to dedicate 65days of his life, starting from February 15th wandering from place to place making people aware of this issue and other related issues as well. His route will be from Guwahati to Jammu via 7 states and 2 Union Territories. Throughout his journey, he will halt at govt. quarters, dharamshalas/guruduaras and academic institutions and in unavoidable cases in Police stations or temples.

Fundraising:

Apart from spreading awareness about this issue, we are trying to raise fund to start-up PROJECT BLACKBOARD, a noble initiative by WAY foundations to provide ill fated at-risk youth from Guwahati, a chance to try their hands on alternative education. Being a start-up what we have currently with us is passion and an idea to make a difference in people’s lives and what we lack is fund to materialize those ideas into action. Millions of at-risk youth find it difficult to cope-up with the challenges of daily life with limited opportunities and find it difficult to travel from an unsafe-environment to a self-sustainable life. Many attend govt. schools too but the environment they are brought up, low teacher-student ratio in schools, heavy syllabus or the syllabus they cannot relate to drag them down to a disillusion or at street. Many fall into the trap of social evils like drug abuse, sexual abuse etc. when they are not accepted well by the mainstream society. We feel current education system alone cannot solve this issues. The answer is World Health Organization’s 10 Core Lifeskills which prepares these adolescents to cope up with the challenges of daily life, empower and transform them into a responsible adult. Project Blackboard aims to address these issues.

For raising the funds we are selling pledges in Kms. 1km= 1Pledge= 1$. A person who buys a pledge Indrajit will ride that corresponding kms in the supporter’s name.

Together we can and we will make a difference!


“I have dreamt of a time, when there will not be any exploitation of the adolescents; a time when we would finally start to understand this age group and their age specific problems and will stand for their rights! And now I want to pass this dream to you; to all of you who can feel their pain! Come let us join hands and work toward a better India.

The places are new, the routes are tough, but what has been inspiring me to go for this is the sense of responsibility and the urge to stand up for a cause!”
