Project Khwaishein

Project Khwaishein – Turning Wishes into Reality is a flagship initiative of Global Shapers Jammu Hub, aimed at catalysing positive change in education. Annually, the hub selects an underserved school in Jammu city and collaborates with school authorities to identify essential requirements for an improved learning environment. The hub solicits input from students and teachers to compile a list of daily needs crucial for the students’ wellbeing at school. The hub then engages various organisations to collectively provide these necessities, fostering a brighter future for the students and promoting a youth led movement to address educational inequality.
