Education is Freedom

Do you believe this?

We have seen it with our own eyes. Children, mothers, fathers, and whole communities transformed through learning.

Not just world-class education, but investment that goes beyond the books.

Even before COVID-19, we were committed to caring for the whole child. Over the past 18 months, you have stepped up to provide critical medical & food aid during the COVID crisis in India.

Now, we have the chance to do even more. Let’s do it together!

For a child in India born into poverty, the odds are stacked against them

With little or no opportunities for upward social mobility, they are taken advantage of and often forced into these scenarios:

Adolescent Marriage

Poor Indian girls are often sold off into marriage by their families and end up enduring severe abuse, rape, and exploitation by their husbands.1

Child Labor

According to the 2011 national census of India, it was discovered that there are about 10 million child laborers, aged 5–14.2

Low-level Schooling

It is estimated that at least 35 million, but possibly as many as 60 million, children aged 6–14 years are currently not attending school.3

Sex Trafficking

It is estimated that 1 out of 4 victims of human trafficking are children.4

We believe children should be free to have a childhood. We believe education is freedom.

We have a radical vision to see the education system in India transformed.
