The Big Picture Project

offers high-impact, extracurricular projects and mentoring to students of grade 9 through grade 12.

What is the Big Picture Project?

The Big Picture Project is a passage for students to join social change movements (local, national, and international) through impact projects. These projects not only transform student career pathways but they also transform high schools and colleges into impact organizations through powerful and relatable storytelling that inspire change and social impact.

We celebrate diversity, global citizenry & social change.

What is the Impact?

Help students grow by engaging them in challenging projects, conversations and educational projects. The impact is two-fold:

*Maximize self-exploration and showcase their impact stories.

*Develop skills like story-telling, people- interactions, budgeting and analysis, and marketing.

*Develop a sense of ownership for their projects in a healthy, yet competitive, environment.

*Provides extracurricular inputs and soft skills development of the students beyond the classroom.

• Help build a career-focus and holistic growth of a student.

• Inculcate social giving skills, and an opportunity to pursue their passion projects.

How are we doing this?

The Big Picture Project with its blended-learning methodology brings critical networks of mentors, impact partners, and subject-area experts to students as they plan, develop, and execute their impact projects. Each student cohort works for four weeks in three stages: Communication Design (week 1), Execution (week 2 + week 3), and Reflection (week 4). Each project includes discussions and coursework engagement on the project management dashboard, live sessions, one-on-one call, group calls, site visits, and public presentations.

The Big Picture Project offers mentoring, resources and networks to students to help them pursue their passion areas. It supports their curricular inputs through extracurricular projects that create social impact.

Crowdfunding platform facilitates the building of a robust and community driven campaign by taking the initiatives beyond the campaigner’s first degree networks.

The Scope for Students

Students can create campaigns across three major categories to build a 360-degree impact.


Students are often inspired to
make a difference in the lives
of others – be it supporting an
animal shelter, old age home or planting trees.

Fundraising for a social cause
will help students increase their
social impact and build on their social skills.


Students can also fundraise
for creative projects – creating
films & documentaries or
creating street art and murals.

Fundraising for these
projects give the students an
opportunity to showcase their
work to a wider audience and
garner support for it.


Students can also be budding
entrepreneurs – creating apps,
robot models, or setting up their own enterprises.

Fundraising for entrepreneurial
projects will help these students
build marketing strategies as
well as generate funds for their projects.
