PERFORMING AND VISUAL ARTS
NeoFusion launched its first skill center in Jaipur, in 2013, intending to promote Visual and Performing Arts. Later, we approached adolescents by attracting their participation and enthusiasm through various art forms, and by encouraging them to complete High School once comfort was established. Every student learns one or more skills in academia while participating in plays, dance performances and more!
Education is the most powerful catalyst for social transformation. Therefore, The NeoFusion Academy of Excellence aims to reduce school dropouts by providing quality English Medium education following the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) curriculum for classes 1-12. Additionally, NeoFusion also provides its students with various after school academic classes that help develop their knowledge further.
The Foundation gives a lot of importance to the health of its beneficiaries, consequently, making sure an Annual health check-up, in ties with Fortis Healthcare, Center for Sight and individual Medical practitioners, is conducted. Even though sexuality education and reproductive health services for adolescents are essential elements in different comprehensive preventive strategies, they have been largely ignored. We at NeoFusion have started Project Samvaad, an initiative with a comprehensive and inclusive curriculum for sexuality education, to bring an end to this issue.
Most adolescents from underprivileged communities come from highly abusive backgrounds- therefore, through a well-designed programme involving the creative arts, the team has successfully counselled many dropouts, unemployed youth, and abused adolescents. NeoFusion strongly believes in counselling and conducting value training for every child that becomes a part of it. Students are encouraged to participate in various art activities, life skill training and workshops with doctors, child psychologists and career coaches provided by NeoFusion.
NeoFusion also mentors school dropouts, encourages them to complete Senior Secondary Schooling or Undergraduate Degree, aligning them to their passions, while completing a full circle by creating not just livelihoods, but sustainable employment opportunities for the youth. The team collaborates with various industries to work on short and long-term projects for the youth in the age group of 18-25 years from other schools, Government schools, NGOs or the community around.
