Our mission is to educate and empower underprivileged children from the urban slums of Bangalore.
Ashwini Charitable Trust (ACT) was started on 15th December 2000 to educate and empower underprivileged children and support them till they are gainfully employed. Every child at ACT goes through an all-round development program. The 8 key areas that require intervention are
Physical and Mental Health and well being
Ashwini Charitable Trust supports 350 children through their education. We do this through our main Ulsoor Centre and 4 satellite centers across Bangalore. All students are first generation literates at an increased risk of not completing their education and attaining mainstream employment. At ACT we strive to ensure that the children remain in school and do not drop out due to financial or other difficulties that their parents face. These children not only feel the financial predicaments throughout their lives but also face a lack of guidance when it comes to education as well as coping with the tribulations life can offer. Therefore ACT goes further with its interventions to ensure physical and emotional well-being of the children by empowering the children as well their families, providing adequate supplies to aid their education, safe environment to nurture their childhood, support groups and strong mentors to rely on until they are ready to spread their wings and fly.
