STORY IN NUMBERS
India has second largest & most complex higher education system. An estimate of 26.5 million students are currently enrolled in higher education. 85% of the students in higher education are enrolled in bachelor's program. 45% of those are women. But 4 in 5 women never enter the workforce. 60% of those who enter the workforce, drop out when they are mid-career.
Traditional Higher Education structures give us a possible escape route to make decisions for ourselves through the help of friends from various cultural backgrounds, model teacher behavior, and inquisitive environment but they don't go far enough. If we want to get beyond college, our choices need to be more than just a course catalog and that is where there is a lack of mentorship and guidance. We need to realize our potential and for that we need to surround ourselves with motivated people.
Relevant role models provoke self-enhancement and inspiration when their success seems attainable but self-deflation when it seems unattainable.
Connectedreams' mission is to connect young women to best fit role models and mentors to avoid feeling of "I missed my chance" and incite the feeling of "She did it, so can I" by making it easy for dreamers to find connections who they can relate to aspirationally, culturally, demographically, and professionally.
