Partnership with Yein Udaan

Yein Udaan and Duchess Club partnered in January 2020 to commence a learning program organised by the NGO and implemented by volunteers from the Club.

The partnership, since then, has extended beyond volunteering to a diverse range of support outlined in the report attached below.

Yein Udaan is a grassroots organisation in Chennai, established in 2017 to provide marginalised children and women access to a safe space with diverse learning opportunities. We hand-hold children from cradle to college with the vision to set them on life-changing paths and empower women through our education and employment initiatives.

Our youngest learners are 2.5 – 4.5 years old and attend our “Playschool” program, where we prepare 20 of them for their schooling journey. These children are taught in the play-way multi-sensory method to develop their language, numeracy, thinking and movement skills.
