ACT - Ashwini Charitable Trust
Our mission is to educate and empower underprivileged children of Urban slums in Bangalore, through sponsorships and support till they are gainfully employed.
Work and Achievements
Ashwini Charitable Trust (ACT) was started on 15th December 2000 to educate and empower underprivileged children and support them till they are gainfully employed. ACT started with 9 children from 1 slum. Initially we helped the children by paying their educational fees and helping with their study skills. At present every child receives 7 different interventions:
- Educational fees,
- Educational tuitions (study skills),
- Quality health care including vaccinations,
- Hobby classes,
- Computer literacy,
- Financial inclusion by starting savings bank accounts,
- Mentoring & Counseling
People of the community provide their financial support and skill sets to uplift the under-served section of our society. We run all our programs through volunteers from all walks of life
ACT provides quality of life, health care, employment opportunities to children living below the poverty line. The Trust also looks towards empowering the mothers of the children who are uneducated, and therefore economically challenged. These interventions help mothers and children safeguard themselves from the fathers who are mostly unemployed and alcoholics.
