Aarambh - Fostering the next generation - Doing our bit for Children

Aarambh, a 20-year-old NGO prides itself in supporting under privileged children. They assist children from the slums of Mumbai on various fronts from education, medical check-up to day care centre. Currently they are supporting 1760 children across their 6 centres in Navi Mumbai.

I had the opportunity of going to one of the centres and was delighted with the work done by them. Got to know about 3 lovely children Seema, Ruksar and Priti whose parents are rag pickers. They used to accompany their parents to support their livelihood. Aarambh has been instrumental in talking to their parents about the importance of education and these kids now have the opportunity to study.

Similarly, there are few other kids awaiting for support, Julie, Aakash & Shalini all aged 12 and studying in Class VI at Samta Vidyalay. They come from a family that cannot afford education and need help from people like us.

If you are interested in supporting children, all it takes is INR 4000 per year (80 G compliant). If we decide to sponsor the child, Aarambh will provide complete transparency and you are welcome to visit the centre and meet the children.

A contribution from our side changes the life for a child. 

Let us together make a difference!

Supporting Children Education through Books, School Stationary and Bags

Umang is a charitable Foundation founded in 2009 and based out of Mumbai. They enable education by providing books, stationary and school bags. They distributed these to 30,000 children last year (2016) sub-urb and Mumbai (around Mumbai city) and rural Maharashtra. They have an ambition to extend this to interiors of Maharastra and distribute education kit to 150,000 children. They focus on government schools and most deserving locations. Ashish Goyal and his friends have a corporate job and undertake this sublime work over the weekends. Ashish speaks passionately about how on one given day they distribute books to 13,000 children and the efficiency with which they handle that.
