Insight Foundation is a group of students and young professionals committed towards working with Dalit and Adivasi students to make our education system more inclusive and to create various support systems for our students so that they are able to optimize their potential, use them for their intellectual growth and career advancement, and to fight against caste-based prejudices and discrimination prevalent in Indian educational spaces.
- Apart from conducting monthly Insight Study Circle meetings in Delhi, our group is also running a National Telephone Helpline for Dalit and Adivasi Students in Higher Education to support our students to make informed choices in pursuing higher education and in career opportunities.
- Together with Helpline, we have our Dalit and Adivasi Students Portal (www.scststudents.org) that acts as an e-resource centre for our students provides relevant online information about admissions, scholarships and career opportunities. Apart from providing information we are regularly uploading interviews of brilliant young Dalit and Adivasis scholars and professionals.
- We are also running a unique Mentorship Programme where our students can interact with the group of successful Dalit and Adivasi students and professionals on various issues like coping up with the campus environment, academic guidance, orientation and career counseling.
- We also run a team blog www.blog.insightyv.com on contemporary socio-political and economic issues
